The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) was ruined by the ongoing Nigerian civil war with Boko Hara, Ansar Dine's 2027 rising in Azawad, the Monrovia cholera outbreak of 2029 and the northern famines of 2024-2025 and 2027-2028. The Francophone states broke away with a project to form a new nation in the wake of the 2029 Mali famine.
The French-speaking states of Benin, Togo, Burkina Faso, Guinea and Senegal began formal unity moves after the introduction of the common ECOWAS currency, the ECO, in 2025. They felt that a single currency and common market did not go far enough and wanted further unity.
They unified as the United Community of West African States in 2029 and formed a new nation in 2030.
The economy is a mostly a mix of fishing, subsistence agriculture, basic manufactured goods, mining, quarrying, logging, tourism and oil exports.
Most of their tanks now have reactive armor.
