"Africa is the world's second-largest and second-most-populous continent. At about 30.2 million km² (11.7 million sq mi) including adjacent islands, it covers six percent of the Earth's total surface area and 20.4 percent of the total land area. With 1.1 billion people as of 2013, it accounts for about 15% of the world's human population. The continent is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, both the Suez Canal and the Red Sea along the Sinai Peninsula to the northeast, the Indian Ocean to the southeast, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. The continent includes Madagascar and various archipelagoes. It has 54 fully recognized sovereign states ("countries"), 9 territories and two de facto independent states with limited or no recognition."

Geo Map - Map of the African Union with suspended states

The member states of the African Union are the 54 sovereign states that have ratified or acceded to the Constitutive Act of the African Union to become member states to the African Union (AU). The AU replaced the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), and AU membership was open to all OAU member states. From an original membership of 36 states when the OAU was established on 25 May 1963, there have been eighteen successive enlargements – the largest occurring on 18 July 1975 when four states joined. South Sudan is the newest member state, having joined on 27 July 2011. The only African United Nations member state which could join, or more precisely re-activate its membership, is Morocco, which withdrew following the organization's acceptance of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic, whose status is disputed, as a member state. Spain, primarily a European country, maintains sovereignty over Spanish North Africa and the Canary Islands off the coast, but is only accredited to the African Union.

The African Union is composed of fifty two republics and two kingdoms. The total population of the AU is 1,068,444,000 (2013)
