Although Nigeria has had a democratic government since 1999, the country faces major social, political, and economic challenges. Charges of election fraud and embezzlement have marred the government. High unemployment, widespread poverty, and an unequal distribution of wealth have created ongoing economic problems. At the forefront of the nation's problems, however, is the ongoing religious conflict between the Muslim north and the Christian south. Sharia law was enacted in 1999 in the Muslim areas, and many are pushing to make Sharia law apply to the entire nation. Violence is common and is particularly bad in the "Middle Belt," or middle region, which divides the nation in half. Politicans exploit these religious differences for political gain, which adds to the struggles the country is facing.
