The Ivory Coast or Côte d'Ivoire, officially the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire, is a country in Africa hindered by the Nod offensive from Northern Africa. It is one of three countries captured by the Brotherhood of Nod in order to steal three nuclear detonators in Benin, the Ivory Coast and Nigeria.
Prior to its colonization by Europeans, Ivory Coast was home to several states, including Gyaaman, the Kong Empire, and Baoulé. There were two Anyi kingdoms, Indénié and Sanwi, which attempted to retain their separate identity through the French colonial period and after independence. An 1843–1844 treaty made Ivory Coast a protectorate of France and in 1893, it became a French colony as part of the European scramble for Africa. Ivory Coast became independent on 7 August 1960. From 1960 to 1993, the country was led by Félix Houphouët-Boigny. It maintained close political and economic association with its West African neighbours, while at the same time maintaining close ties to the West, especially to France.
First Tiberium War
In the early middle of the First Tiberium War, the President of France, Honore Prichard ordered both the Ivory Coast and Benin to fight against the Brotherhood of Nod. The President of the Ivory Coast agreed with Benin's President and also, two Commanders belonging to the Global Defense Initiative for peacekeeping purposes. With the battle of Benin beginning, another Nod Commander smashed the GDI forces inland and arrived in Abidjan to officially surrender the government of the Ivory Coast and also, steal the second detonator after securing the Construction Yard and killed the GDI Ivorian Commander along with the GDI Commander in the city. The first detonator in Benin was taken by the Nod Commander after the surrender of the Beninese government and the deaths of the GDI Commander in Porto Novo and also, the GDI Beninese Commander.
