The Mali Federation (Fédération du Mali) was a country in West Africa. It was formed by a union between Senegal and the Sudanese Republic. It was founded on April 4, 1959, within the French Community and became entirely self-governing when it gained independence from France on June 20, 1960. The federation collapsed shortly after independence, on 20 August 1960, when Senegal withdrew, due to political disagreements. The Sudanese Republic was renamed the Republic of Mali on 22 September 1960.
