Issa is a state of Ethiopia.
The Issas are a Somali clan (in fact, part of the Dir clan, but the remaining part is far to the south and forms a separate state Biyemal), and after the Second Great War it was decided that each Somali clan would form a separate state. Issa is largely Christian due to Ethiopian influence, while other Somali clans are more Muslim.
Issa was taken over by the break-away government of Somalia.
Djibouti is the capital of Issa.
