A very tiny ex-Portuguese colony. Of course with all the recent countries profiled. There have been three coups already in the 21st century. It is one of the poorest countries on earth. The major piece of its economy are cashew nuts.

  9. Yeah, I kinda agree with Ed. They would have become independent eventually anyway, but maybe not under a different dictator every week.
