Equatorial Guinea is a country located in Middle Africa. It has two parts- a Continental Region including several small offshore islands, and an insular region containing Annobon Island and Bioko Island, where the capital city of Malabo is located.
The government of Equatorial Guinea is a semi-presidential republic, with a president, prime minister, and the Chamber of People's Representatives. Politics in Equatorial Guinea are dominated by the Democratic Party of Equatorial Guinea, with the party and its allies currently holding 99 of the 100 seats in the country's Parliament.
Equatorial Guinea has the highest per capita GDP in Africa, due to its sizable oil reserves. However, the wealth from their oil is distributed extremely unevenly. 70% of the country's population lives under the poverty line, and the UN estimates that less than half of the population has access to clean drinking water. Equatorial Guinea also has one of the worst human rights records in the world.
