It is a failed state. Rampant corruption, almost no electricity, no government control, warlords, and Taliban extremism. If the kids are girls, they have almost no chance of an education without bombings, teacher killings, and acid attacks. Taliban Law is in effect in many parts of the country and there are shadow governors in most of the provinces. Taliban justice prevails, which is as severe as can be and involves stoning a woman for adultery or rape (to avoid being stoned the woman needs male witnesses otherwise rape is classified as adultery).
