The Aksumite King Ezana would eventually conquer Nubia the following century, and the Aksumites thereafter appropriated the designation "Ethiopians" for their own kingdom.In the 1970s and 1980s, Ethiopia experienced civil conflicts and communist purges, which hindered its economy.The country has since recovered and now has the largest economy (by GDP) in East Africa, having the largest population in the region.The country was occupied by Italy in 1936 and became Italian Ethiopia (part of Italian East Africa) until it was liberated during World War II.Ethiopia was also the first independent member from Africa of the 20th-century League of Nations and the United Nations.
