    Equatorial Guinea is the only country in Africa that has Spanish as an official language. However, unlike the rest of the countries that make up the VeinteMundos, Spanish is not the first/primary language for the majority of the population (although it is still spoken by an estimated 89% of the country). Guinean Spanish is characterized by a strong influence from local tribal languages as well as from Pichininglish (pidgeon/pidgin English), French, and in some cases Portuguese and German. In some places the r is guttural similar to French. In general the language spoken here has a greater resemblance to Castillian Spanish than American Spanish; for example, the use of "vosotros" as 2nd person plural. Differences can be noted between the Spanish spoken by those of different ethnic groups.

Equatorial Guinea’s vice-president records his lavish lifestyle on Instagram, but it is unclear where his money comes from. He is currently being tried for embezzlement and money-laundering in France, where a verdict will be announced this week. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 Meet one of Instagram's most famous playboys. He tours the world, driving fast cars and eating at the world's finest restaurants. He even gets hip-hop stars like Wyclef Jean to play at his lavish parties posting his exploits on his Instagram account. But this isn't your typical Instagram star. He's the vice-president of a country, Equatorial Guinea. A small country in west Africa with a lot of oil. Teodoro Nguema Obiang is the second-most-powerful man in the country. His father is the world's longest serving president, Teodoro Obiang Nguema. The Obiang family has amassed a fortune running into the hundreds of millions of dollars. But how have they made their money? Equatorial Guinea has some of the most opaque national accounts in the world. Per head it is the richest country in Africa, yet people live in plastic-shack poverty. The most recent figures available from the World Bank suggest that three-quarters of the population live below the poverty line. But the presidential family seem oblivious to the poverty. If the country is so wealthy, where is all the money going? Tutu Alicante is a lawyer from Equatorial Guinea who is in exile in the United States. He runs an organisation that is trying to tackle corruption in his homeland. He knows first hand how the massive theft of public money has left little behind to fund public services. While most of the population live in squalid conditions, Teddy splashes the cash, showing off his wealth on his Instagram account. Often using the hashtag luxury living he reveals a life of privilege and excess. Court papers say he amassed around $300m worldwide between 2000 and 2011, despite having an official government salary of less than $100,000 a year. The Department of Justice alleged that Teddy embezzled millions of dollars from the public purse as cabinet minister. The Department of Justice agreed a settlement of around $30m with Teddy. This year Teddy has found himself on trial again. This time in a separate case in France charged with embezzlement and money-laundering. After being unsuccessful in claiming diplomatic immunity he failed to show up to any of the court hearings. Instead, he posted videos on Instagram of himself on safari near Victoria Falls. The French court valued his assets in France at around €100m, including a large property bought for €25m in Paris. The French public prosecutor has asked for a three-year jail sentence, €30m fine, and all of Teddy's assets in France to be seized. The vice-president denies the charges. The future for Equatorial Guinea looks bleak. The president is ageing and his son is preparing to take over. The spendthrift strongmen of Equatorial Guinea are not the only presidential family in Africa who are under investigation for embezzling from the public purse. The presidents of Gabon and the Republic of Congo are also being investigated by judges in France. But Teddy's had a busy time of late posting from the beaches of Brazil to the Great Wall of China. There are plenty of countries where regulators turn a blind eye to despots who want to hide their ill-gotten gains. But their secrets are increasingly being leaked and it helps if the autocrats themselves do the leaking, via Instagram. Daily Watch: mind-stretching short films throughout the working week.

Equatorial Guinea is the richest country in Africa per capita, but 75 percent of the people live on less than a dollar a day.” TRANSCRIPT So Equatorial Guinea was a Spanish colony up until 1968. It is the only Spanish-speaking country in sub-Saharan Africa. All the neighboring countries speak French, and the majority of countries in Africa speak either French or English, right? You have a few that speak Portuguese. But Equatorial Guinea’s the only Spanish-speaking country in sub-Saharan Africa. Between 1968 and 1979, Equatorial Guinea was under the rule of a brutal dictator, Francisco Macías Nguema, who took over after – immediately after independence, and within a year of being in power had kicked out all the Spanish and other foreign nationals. And within three to five more years of being in power, about a third of the population had fled the country seeking exile in Cameroon, Gabon, Spain and other countries. In 1979, the current president, President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo killed his uncle, Francisco Macías, and took over power – 1979. Today, 33 years later, President Obiang is still in power. President Obiang runs the regime that is characterized by human rights violations, by corruption. When one looks at the list of most corrupt countries from Transparency International rankings, Equatorial Guinea is always top five. When one looks at the list from the Freedom House of countries where there is no freedom, Equatorial Guinea is always in the top five. When one looks at the Committee to Protect Journalists’ list of countries that are closed, where there is no freedom of expression, there is no freedom of the press; Equatorial Guinea is always top five. So we are talking about a country that is characterized by human rights violations, a country that still tortures prisoners as a way of extracting confessions, a country that despite being the third largest oil-producing nation in Africa, third only to Nigeria and Angola, where the GDP per capita is comparable to that of Japan and France [when measured as GDP Per Capita PPP (Purchasing Power Parity) in current international dollars], 75 percent of the people in that country, in Equatorial Guinea, live on less than a dollar a day. The richest country in Africa per capita-wise, with 75 percent of the population living on less than a dollar a day. Where does the money go? President Obiang’s son owns a mansion in Malibu, California, a $35 million estate. President Obiang’s son right now, whose name is also Teodoro – there is an arrest warrant issued by the authorities in France for his arrest for money laundering and fraud. They have seized from the property owned and enjoyed by the Obiang family and friends artwork, furniture worth tens of millions of dollars. They have seized 11 luxury sport cars worth millions of dollars. And that’s where the money goes, in living a flamboyant lifestyle outside Equatorial Guinea while people in Equatorial Guinea do not have running water, while people – my nieces and nephew – must fetch water in buckets every morning, study with a kerosene lamp, go to school half-naked, without shoes. That is the situation in Equatorial Guinea today. There are seven ethnic groups in Equatorial Guinea. The majority ethnic group is about 80 percent of the population, and this is the Fang – F-A-N-G – the Fang people. President Obiang happens to be from the majority ethnic group. Territorially – looking at it geographically rather, Equatorial Guinea can be divided in, say, three sections. One is a continental side, which is on the mainland, on the continent, and then there is the island of Bioko, which is where the capital sits. The capital of Equatorial Guinea is Malabo, and that sits on Bioko. And then there is a farther island, Annobón, south of the hemisphere, and that is where I’m from. And even though you have these three regions, you still have seven different ethnic groups: one dominant one that, since independent, has controlled political power, economic power and military power. President Obiang has skillfully used the fact that the Fangs are the majority to divide the society in Equatorial Guinea. So while it is true that most people in government today are from one ethnic group, it is not true that the Fangs, for instance, in general, are discriminating against minorities. But what happened, you know, is that even among the people from the Fang ethnic group, you have divisions, and President Obiang has used those divisions and clans to give the perception that the Fang dominate the country.

Thanks for watching.... 1. Bata 2. Malabo 3. Ebebiyin 4. Aconibe 5. Añisoc 6. Luba 7. Mongomo 8. Evinayong 9. Mikomeseng 10. Rebola Equatorial Guinea (Spanish: Guinea Ecuatorial), officially the Republic of Equatorial Guinea (Spanish: República de Guinea Ecuatorial, French: République de Guinée équatoriale, Portuguese: República da Guiné Equatorial), is a small country located in Central Africa, with an area of 28,000 square kilometres (11,000 sq mi). It has two parts, an insular and a mainland region. The insular region consists of the islands of Bioko (formerly Fernando Pó) in the Gulf of Guinea and Annobón, a small volcanic island south of the equator. Bioko Island is the northernmost part of Equatorial Guinea and is the site of the country's capital, Malabo. The island nation of São Tomé and Príncipe is located between Bioko and Annobón. The mainland region, Río Muni, is bordered by Cameroon on the north and Gabon on the south and east. It also includes several small offshore islands (such as Corisco, Elobey Grande, and Elobey Chico). Formerly the colony of Spanish Guinea, its post-independence name evokes its location near both the equator and the Gulf of Guinea. Apart from the Spanish territories of Canary Islands, Ceuta and Melilla on the coast of Morocco, and Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (a.k.a. Western Sahara), it is the only country in Africa whose de jure official language is Spanish. Since the mid-1990s, Equatorial Guinea has become one of sub-Sahara's largest oil producers. With a population of 650,702, it is the richest country per capita in Africa, and its gross domestic product (GDP) per capita ranks 69th in the world;[9] However, the wealth is distributed very unevenly and few people have benefited from the oil riches. The country ranks 144th on the UN's 2014 Human Development Index. The UN says that less than half of the population has access to clean drinking water and that 20% of children die before reaching five. The authoritarian regime ruling Equatorial Guinea has one of the worst human rights records in the world, consistently ranking among the "worst of the worst" in Freedom House's annual survey of political and civil rights. Reporters Without Borders ranks President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo among its "predators" of press freedom. Human trafficking is a significant problem, with the US Trafficking in Persons Report, 2012, stating that "Equatorial Guinea is a source and destination for women and children subjected to forced labor and sex trafficking." The report rates Equatorial Guinea as a "Tier 3" country, the lowest (worst) ranking: "Countries whose governments do not fully comply with the minimum standards and are not making significant efforts to do so." Equatorial Guinea is in west central Africa. The country consists of a mainland territory, Río Muni, which is bordered by Cameroon to the north and Gabon to the east and south, and five small islands, Bioko, Corisco, Annobón, Elobey Chico (Small Elobey), and Elobey Grande (Great Elobey). Bioko, the site of the capital, Malabo, lies about 40 kilometers (25 mi) off the coast of Cameroon. Annobón Island is about 350 kilometers (220 mi) west-south-west of Cape Lopez in Gabon. Corisco and the two Elobey islands are in Corisco Bay, on the border of Río Muni and Gabon. Equatorial Guinea lies between latitudes 4°N and 2°S, and longitudes 5° and 12°E. Despite its name, no part of the country's territory lies on the equator—it is in the northern hemisphere, except for the insular Annobón Province, which is about 155 km south of the equator. Equatorial Guinea spans several ecoregions. Río Muni region lies within the Atlantic Equatorial coastal forests ecoregion except for patches of Central African mangroves on the coast, especially in the Muni River estuary. The Cross-Sanaga-Bioko coastal forests ecoregion covers most of Bioko and as well as the adjacent portions of Cameroon and Nigeria on the African mainland, and the Mount Cameroon and Bioko montane forests ecoregion covers the highlands of Bioko and nearby Mount Cameroon. The São Tomé, Príncipe, and Annobón moist lowland forests ecoregion covers all of Annobón, as well as São Tomé and Príncipe. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equatorial_Guinea
