Information about countries (including dependencies and areas of special sovereignty) under the Bureau of African Affairs is available through the clickable map below and through links in the navigation bar at left. The list is sorted alphabetically by short-form names. For long-form names, please refer to the U.S. Bilateral Fact Sheets or see the list of Independent States of the World.  Note that the Bureau of African Affairs deals with countries in sub-Saharan Africa, not those in North Africa.
