Botswana is a member of the African Union, the Southern African Development Community, the Commonwealth of Nations, and the United Nations.

A mid-sized country of just over 2 million people, Botswana is one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world.All these various peoples were connected to trade routes that ran via the Limpopo River to the Indian Ocean, and trade goods from Asia such as beads made their way to Botswana most likely in exchange for ivory, gold, and rhinoceros horn.The arrival of the ancestors of the Tswana-speakers who came to control the region has yet to be dated precisely.During the 1840s and 1850s trade with Cape Colony-based merchants opened up and enabled the Batswana chiefdoms to rebuild.The Bakwena, Bangwaketse, Bangwato and Batawana cooperated to control the lucrative ivory trade, and then used the proceeds to import horses and guns, which in turn enabled them to establish control over what is now Botswana.
