South Africa has by far the strongest economy, so that has to be there, Egypt gets a lot of military support from the US, i think it has the most powerful military in africa, most of central africa is experiencing conflicts or there governments are corrupt. It will be a long time before any of them are stable enough, Gabon is the only country in central africa with a GDP per capita above $4000. Several of the north african countries - algeria, tunisia, morrocco, libya (kind of). Have benefitted from europe and are fairly stable and strong, but only South Africa and Egypt have the economy and military to exert there influence. South Africa even in the 70's or 80's was linked with developing nuclear weapons.

Yeah it is said that the Nuclear location where they did all of thier Nuclear weapons was not actualy destroyed though...just closed down.


However yeah technicly Egypt is considered part of the Middle East even though it is on the African continant. I would have to agree on Egypt, they have been around about 3,000-4,000 years. Thats called staying power.
