Where in the World: Equatorial Guinea

I am not sure what I know about this country, I feel like I know something but I am not sure what it is, maybe I will learn what it is here

  1. Equatorial Guinea, is made up of two parts, a insular region (I think that means island) made up of the islands of Bioko and Annobon, the mainland part is boarded by Cameroon in the north and Gabon to the south and east,
  2. Someone who comes from here is an Equatoguinean
  3. In the late 18th century, the Spanish traded for Bioko, Annobon and parts of the mainland of the country for parcels of land in Brazil, this was so Spain could have its own source of slaves
  4. Because of this Equatorial Guinea is the only county in Africa that has Spanish as an official language
  5. However, the first Europeans credited for being here first was actually Portugal
  6. The largest ethnic group is the Fang and occupies mainly the mainland, The Bubi are the second largest are mainly live on Bioko
  7. The world’s largest frog can be found here, the Goliath Frog
  8. It is 1 of 10 African countries with less than a million people living in it
  9. It is one of the richest countries in Africa, however the vast amount of the population live in poverty
  10. Hope you enjoy this bit of music from this country
