Ghana's government was created as a parliamentary democracy at independence in 1957, followed by alternating military and civilian governments. It is now elected by universal suffrage; however, the legislature is greatly malapportioned, with low-population districts receiving more representatives per person than those with high populations. The country is well endowed with natural resources. Ghana has twice the per capita output of the poorer countries in West Africa. Even so, Ghana remains somewhat dependent on trade and international assistance as well as the investment activities of Ghanaian Diaspora. About 30 % of the population lives below the international poverty line of US $1.25 a day.
