Ghana ( / ˈ ɡ ɑː n ə / ( listen ) ), officially the Republic of Ghana , is a unitary presidential constitutional democracy , located along the Gulf of Guinea and Atlantic Ocean , in the subregion of West Africa. Spanning a land mass of 238,535 km², Ghana is bordered by the Ivory Coast in the west, Burkina Faso in the north, Togo in the east and the Gulf of Guinea and Atlantic Ocean in the south. Ghana means "Warrior King" in the Soninke language. [10]

Ghana was inhabited in the Middle Ages and the Age of Discovery by a number of ancient predominantly Akan kingdoms in the Southern and Central territories. This included the Ashanti Empire , the Akwamu , the Bonoman , the Denkyira , and the Mankessim Kingdom. [20]
