More than 10.2 million people live in Guinea. The main cities are Camayenne (1.87 million inhabitants), Conakry , the capital (1.77 million inhabitants), Nzérékoré (132,000), Kindia (117,000), Kankan (114,000). From an administrative point of view, Guinea is divided into 33 prefectures and a special area (Conakry). The coast is inhabited by the Deep Ones; the hinterland (the Foula-Djallon) by the Toucouleurs and the Peuls.
