Nigeria is made up of 36 states and the capital city territory of Abuja. Comparatively, it is a little more than twice the size of California. Population is difficult to determine because representation on the National Assembly and distribution of wealth depends on population figures, so many local governments fudge the numbers. That being said, according to the World Bank, the population in Nigeria for 2008 is 151,212,254 people. It is the most populous country in Africa.
