Name the African, country formed in the mid 19th Century, that based its flag and constitution on those of the United States.

For a couple of bonus points, what are 2 "firsts" associated with this country. There may well be quite a few "firsts" but if I can authenticate them then the points are yours.

Note: I only need 2 "firsts".
