Angola

'''Angola''' ; Kikongo, Kimbundu, Umbundu: ''Repubilika ya Ngola''), is a country in Southern Africa. It is the seventh largest country in Africa, and is bordered by Namibia on the south, the Democratic Republic of the Congo on the north, and Zambia on the east; its west coast is on the Atlantic Ocean and Luanda is its capital city. The exclave (Enclave and exclave) province of Cabinda (Cabinda Province) has borders with the Republic of the Congo and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The Portuguese were present in some – mostly coastal – points of the territory of what is now Angola from the 16th century, interacting in diverse ways with the peoples who lived there. In the 19th century, settlers slowly and hesitantly began to establish themselves in the interior. Angola as a Portuguese colony (Portuguese West Africa) encompassing the present territory was not established until the early 20th century, after the Mbunda (Mbunda people) resistance and abduction of their King, Mwene Mbandu I Lyondthzi Kapova (Mwene Mbandu Kapova I of Mbunda). See René Pélissier: ''Les Guerres grises: Résistance et revoltes en Angola (1845–1941)'', Montamets Orgeval: Éditions Pélissier, 1977 Independence was achieved in 1975, after a protracted liberation war (Angolan War of Independence). After independence, Angola descended into an intense civil war from 1975 to 2002 (Angolan Civil War). Despite the civil war, areas such as Baixa de Cassanje continue a lineage of kings which have included the former King Kambamba Kulaxingo and current King Dianhenga Aspirante Mjinji Kulaxingo.

Angola has vast mineral and petroleum reserves, and its economy has on average grown at a double-digit pace since the 1990s, especially following the end of the civil war. In spite of this, standards of living remain low for the majority of the population, and life expectancy and infant mortality rates (infant mortality) in Angola are among the worst in the world. Angola is considered to be economically disparate, with the majority of the nation's wealth concentrated (wealth concentration) in a disproportionately small sector of the population.

Angola is a member state of the United Nations, OPEC, African Union, the Community of Portuguese Language Countries, the Latin Union and the Southern African Development Community.
