Description One of nine regional states (or 'kililoch') created on the basis of a presumed common genealogy or common language by the revolutionist Ethiopian regime, a process which began on its assumption of power in 1991.

The name of the region comes from its two dominant ethnic groups, the Benishangul and the Gumuz.

It is considered one of the nation's poorest regions, weak in development and lacking government champions.

The capital is Assosa.
