Middle Africa is a term that is reffering to the independent and non-aligned landlocked countries in the central part of Africa (Native States, Kasai, Katanga); these countries were never colonised, but, unlike the African power of Ethiopia, stayed quite underdevloped. The term Middle Africa have been used since 19th century. In the modern times additional countries (such as former French colony of Azande Chiefdoms) are sometimes included in this definition as well - this is due to the fact that these countries are also landlocked, currently independent and frequently underdeveloped (but, however, their history was different).
