An enlargeable map of the Republic of Malawi

The Republic of Malawi, formerly Nyasaland, is a sovereign country located in southeastern Africa.[1] Malawi is bordered by Zambia to the northwest, Tanzania to the north and Mozambique, which surrounds it on the east, south and west and is separated from Malawi by Lake Malawi (also Lake Nyasa). The origin of the name Malawi is unclear; it is either derived from that of southern tribes, or from the "glitter of the sun rising across the lake" (as seen in its flag). Malawi is a densely populated country with a democratically-elected, presidential system of government.

The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to Malawi:
