Equatorial Guinea (Spanish: Guinea Ecuatorial; French: Guinée équatoriale; Portuguese: Guiné Equatorial), officially the Republic of Equatorial Guinea (Spanish: República de Guinea Ecuatorial, French: République de Guinée équatoriale, Portuguese: República da Guiné Equatorial), is a country located on the west coast of Central Africa, with an area of 28,000 square kilometres (11,000 sq mi). Previously the colony of Spanish Guinea evokes the Gulf of Guinea and its location near the Equator. Equatorial Guinea is the only sovereign country in. As of 2015, the country had a population of 1,225,377. Equatorial Guinea is made up of two parts, an insular and a region that is southern. The insular region comprises the islands of Bioko (formerly Fernando Pó) from the Gulf of Guinea and Annobón, a tiny volcanic island that's the only area of the country south of the equator. Bioko Island is the northernmost part of Equatorial Guinea and is the country's capital, Malabo's site. The island country of São Tomé and Príncipe is located between Annobón and Bioko. Río Muni, the southern region, is bordered on the north and Gabon by Cameroon on the south and east. It's the location of Bata, the largest town of Equatorial Guinea, the country's planned future capital, and Ciudad de la Paz. Rio Muni also includes several small islands, such as Corisco, Elobey Grande, and Elobey Chico. The country is a member of the CPLP, Francophonie, OPEC and the African Union. Since the mid-1990s, Equatorial Guinea has become one of sub-Saharan Africa's largest oil producers. It has subsequently become the richest country per capita in Africa, and its gross domestic product (GDP) adjusted for purchasing power parity (PPP) per capita ranks 43rd in the world; however, the wealth is distributed extremely unevenly, with few individuals benefiting from the oil riches. The country ranks 144th on the 2019 Human Development Index, with less than half the population having access to clean drinking water and 20 percent of children. Equatorial Guinea's government is authoritarian and has one of the worst human rights records in the world, consistently ranking among the"worst of the worst" in Freedom House's annual survey of political and civil rights. Reporters Without Borders ranks President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo among its"predators" of press freedom. Human trafficking is a substantial problem; the 2012 U.S. Trafficking in Persons Report stated that Equatorial Guinea"is a source and destination for women and children subjected to forced labour and forced sex trafficking." The report rates Equatorial Guinea as a government that"does not fully comply with minimum standards and is not making significant efforts to do so."
