Angola is a country in southwestern Africa. It is the seventh-largest country in Africa, bordered by Namibia to the south, the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north, Zambia to the east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. Angola has an exclave province, the province of Cabinda that is separated from the rest of the country by the Congo River. The capital and largest city of Angola is Luanda.
Angola is a former Portuguese colony that was granted independence in 1975. Since then, the country has been through a civil war that lasted for 27 years. Angola is a member of the African Union, the Southern African Development Community, and the Community of Portuguese Language Countries.
The country is rich in oil and diamonds, and its economy is growing rapidly. However, Angola is still one of the poorest countries in the world, with a high rate of unemployment and a large number of people living in poverty.
