The United Nations (UN) is an intergovernmental organization to promote international co-operation. A replacement for the ineffective League of Nations, the organization was established on 24 October 1945 after World War II in order to prevent another such conflict. At its founding, the UN had 51 member states; there are now 193. The headquarters of the United Nations is in Manhattan, New York City, and experiences extraterritoriality.

Further main offices are situated in Geneva, Nairobi and Vienna. The organization is financed by assessed and voluntary contributions from its member states. Its objectives include maintaining international peace and security, promoting human rights, fostering social and economic development, protecting the environment, and providing humanitarian aid in cases of famine, natural disaster, and armed conflict.

Eritrea has no official national language. Tigrinya is the most largely spoken language here.

The Danakil Depression is the lowest point in the country and is considered to be one of the world's hottest places. Eritrea capital city Asmara is also called the "Italy's African City" or "New Rome". This, due to the distinctive Italian touch it exudes. The port city of Adulis is one of Africa's most ancient cities. The Greeks founded it in 600. It is believed that the Kingdom of Axum (Aksum), located in southern Eritrea was founded by King Solomon's son and the Queen of Sheba. One of the world's oldest human fossils was excavated here and many experts believe this country to be the cradle of the earth. It is very common to see adults and children eating separately in the highland of Eritrea. However, as you descend into the plains, the customs change, and the entire family sits down to a meal together. This is probably one of the very few countries in the world that have only one political party- People's Front for Democracy and Justice. Over the years, this is one country in the world where elections have been regularly scheduled and cancelled but none has actually ever been held. It is the world\'s first country to allocate an entire coastline as a reserve. The Dahlak group of islands is world-renowned for their pearl production and are largely uninhabited.

N.Saravanan said: (Aug 31, 2016)  
Bordered by Sudan, Ethiopia and Djibouti, it occupies a strategic area in the Horn of Africa but remains one of the most secretive states in the world.

Tensions with Ethiopia remain high across a closed and heavily fortified border. The perceived threat of war is said to have been used by the government to clamp down on society.

Eritrea is a one-party state, and its 1997 constitution - which provided for the existence of multi-party politics - has never been fully implemented. Military conscription is mandatory and indefinite, according to Amnesty International.

Prolonged periods of conflict and severe drought have adversely affected Eritrea's agriculture-based economy and it remains one of the poorest countries in Africa.

In a damning report into human rights abuses, the UN accused the government of crimes against humanity. By UN estimates, hundreds of thousands of Eritreans have fled the country in recent years, making the perilous journey across the Sahara and the Mediterranean to Europe.
