It has many towering buildings and more modern things like cellphones and modern computers. But most people choose to leave the country ad not many migrants or immigrants are going there.

Economics

My country Equatorial Guinea is still in the developing range. One reason is that because they have a low GDP per capita at 7,790 dollars a month. If the GDP is low it means the country is poor. Another reason is that the people there do't last long. They have a low life expectancy which probably means they don't have many hospital nearby or not great of medicine. My third and last reason is that it has a low literacy rate. If they don't have a great literacy rate that means that they probably don't have the best schools or they need to pay a lot to keep their kids in school.

Culture

Equatorial Guinea is filled with laguages and ultures almost every one so for this we will only talk about the main languages and cultures. Equatorial Guinea was formed by people from Spain so most of the population there speaks Spanish but there are some people that speak many other languages like French, Fang, and Bubi. The people that live there are mostly Christian or Roman Catholic.

Hobbies

Equatorial Guinea is huge on soccer. In fact there lots of grafitti on walls about soccer. The children love to play them on the streets after school is over. But sometimes they'll even play in the rain.
