Due to the oil industry, it is the richest African country but it has one of the poorest average populations in the world. This is because the national leaders hog all the money to themselves. It is also the only African country that speaks Spanish. Its capital (Malabo) is on a tiny island (Bioko) far away from the mainland (Rio Muni). It's also really hot down there. Not to be confused with Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Papua New Guinea, Guyana, French Guiana, the island New Guinea, or the guinea pig.

That one tiny country in Africa that is able to grow on its own without the hindrance of that much disease, corruption, or warfare. It had an impressive 20.8% growth rate from 1990-2002.
Equatorial Guinea is still far behind in terms of GDP and standard of living, but it sure is slightly better than most of the other starving and fighting countries in Africa.
