Equatorial Guinea - Land of Mines

Location of  Equatorial Guinea  (dark blue)– in Africa  (light blue & dark grey)– in the African Union  (light blue)

It embodies two parts: a Continental Region (Río Muni), incorporating numerous modest seaward islands like Corisco, Elobey Grande and Elobey Chico; and a separate district holding Annobón island and Bioko island (once Fernando Po) where the capital Malabo is arranged.

Annobón is the southernmost island of Equatorial Guinea and is arranged only south of the equator. Bioko island is the northernmost purpose of Equatorial Guinea. Between the two islands and to the east is the territory district. Central Guinea is outskirted by Cameroon on the north, Gabon on the south and east, and the Gulf of Guinea on the west, where the island country of São Tomé and Príncipe is spotted between Bioko and Annobón. Once the province of Spanish Guinea, its post-freedom name is suggestive of its area close both the equator and the Gulf of Guinea. Moreover the Spanish urban areas of Ceuta and Melilla on the Mediterranean coast alongside Morocco, it is the main region in territory Africa with Spanish as the official dialect.

With a range of 28,000 square kilometres (11,000 sq mi) Equatorial Guinea is one of the most diminutive nations in mainland Africa. It is likewise the wealthiest for every capita ; notwithstanding, the riches is conveyed quite unevenly, with 70% of the populace living under the United Nations Poverty Threshold of $2/day. With a populace of 650,702, Equatorial Guinea is the third littlest nation in mainland Africa. It is likewise the second most diminutive United Nations (Un) part from mainland Africa.

Río Muni district lies inside the Atlantic Equatorial beachfront backwoods ecoregion with the exception of patches of Central African mangroves on the coast, particularly in the Muni River estuary. The Cross-Sanaga-Bioko seaside backwoods ecoregion blankets the vast majority of Bioko and in addition the nearby partitions of Cameroon and Nigeria on the African territory, and the Mount Cameroon and Bioko montane timberlands ecoregion fronts the good countries of Bioko and adjacent Mount Cameroon.


Tropical Guinea has a tropical atmosphere with different wet and dry seasons. From June to August, Río Muni is dry and Bioko wet; from December to February, the opposite happens. Amidst there is continuous move. Drizzle or fog happens day by day on Annobón, where a cloudless day has never been enlisted. The temperature at Malabo, Bioko, runs from 16 °c (61 °f) to 33 °c (91 °f), however on the southern Moka Plateau ordinary high temperatures are just 21 °c (70 °f). In Río Muni, the normal temperature is in the ballpark of 27 °c (81 °f). Twelve-month precipitation fluctuates from 1,930 mm (76 in) at Malabo to 10,920 mm (430 in)) at Ureka, Bioko, however Río Muni is sort of drier.


The lion's share of the individuals of Equatorial Guinea are of Bantu cause. The biggest tribe, the Fang, is indigenous to the territory, yet considerable movement to Bioko Island has brought about Fang strength over the prior Bantu tenants. The Fang constitute 80% of the populace and include 67 groups. Those in the northern part of Rio Muni talk Fang-Ntumu, while those in the south talk Fang-Okah; the two lingos have distinctions however are commonly comprehensible. Vernaculars of Fang are additionally spoken in parts of neighboring Cameroon (Bulu) and Gabon. These lingos, while still understandable, are more unique. The Bulu Fang of Cameroon were accepted opponents of Fang in Rio Muni. The Bubi, who constitute 15% of the populace, are indigenous to Bioko Island. The customary outline line between Fang and vacation spot tribes was the village of Niefang (point of confinement of the Fang) inland from Bata.

Moreover, there are beachfront tribes, now and then implied as Ndowe or "Playeros" (Beach People in Spanish): Combes, Bujebas, Balengues, and Bengas on the territory and little islands, and Fernandinos, a Krio neighborhood on Bioko Island.

Generally Spaniards left after freedom. There is a developing number of nonnatives from neighboring Cameroon, Nigeria, and Gabon. Central Guinea appropriated Asians and dark Africans from different nations as specialists on cocoa and cafe manors. Other dark Africans originated from Liberia, Angola, and Mozambique.

As per a couple of sources Portuguese is an official dialect now, yet numerous different sources, incorporating official Equatorial Guinean sources, don't treat Portuguese as an official dialect, which shows that the choice above was not achieved. Throughout the Viii Conference of the Community of Portuguese Language Countries in Luanda (23 July 2010), Equatorial Guinea formally asked for the enrollment in this conglomeration.

El Salvador has needed legitimate demographic information for numerous years since between 1992 and 2007 a national registration had not been undertaken. Soon after the 2009 statistics, examples in populace development advanced numerous authorities (counting inside the Salvadoran government) to gauge the nation's populace estimate at between 7.1 and 7.2 million individuals. Be that as it may, on May 12, 2008, El Salvador's Ministry of Economy discharged facts assembled in the evaluation of the past May.
