2 different countries are named congo.

1) the democratic republic of congo-kishaska is the former zaire. it was once a very poorly run belgian colony. for years, it was a dictatorship under joseph motubo. in the 1990s, the nation was in a constant state of civil war. it is currently under the authority of a transitional gov't.

2) the republic of congo, a country in just as bad of a state as the above. a former french colony, it saw multiple coups until a communist government came to power in the late 1960s. civil war occured in the 1990s, and the country is currently a faux democracy. it is known for its vast jungles with their gorillas.
there are two nations called the congo. interesting enough, the former zaire is officially called congo-kishaska, but it is usually refered to as just 'congo', while the republic of congo is usually refered to as 'congo-braza'

They are known to people the most proudest people in the world, culture wise attitude wise and they tent to brag a lot. Congolese people are the best people to ever walk on this earth please learn from them you might catch a thing or too about life. They are hard workers it been said that during slavery the most Africa that got captured the most were Congolese people and that was because they were the most hard working people in Africa and they could adapt really quickly for that many of them were taken, if you truth every black American in America at least 78 percent of them will have some type of Congolese Heritage. Congolese people are good at everything they do expect fixing their own country. They are good in sports, music, dance, healthy, culture everything. But then again they are the heart of AFRICA AKA the mother land. One thing though don't never Cross a Congolese person because they never forget.
