South Africa state

Explanation

After the government formed by European settlers handed over to the majority population a state of considerable uncertainty arises. However, since the handover things seem to have improved. The low level civil war going on in Natal between Inkatha supporters and the ANC has reduced but crime has not. Inkatha were trying to achieve a Zulu state - the re-creation of Shaka's empire. This would have amounted to secession.

Allegations that some of the former security forces, now acting as extreme right racist groups, have nuclear weapons are hard to assess. None of these conflicts seem likely since non-racial elections occurred. In particular Zululand does not now seem likely to secede. War inside South Africa seems unlikely and there are no external enemies. Chinese influence is of a different nature.
