Swaziland is in southern Africa, and is bordered by South Africa and Mozambique. It takes its name from an 19th century monarch, King Mswati II.
The official languages in Swaziland are English and Swati, the latter of which is spoken by a large proportion of the country's population. Other languages and dialects spoken include Zulu and Tsonga.
Swaziland's economy relies mostly upon subsistence agriculture and industry. Agricultural produce includes sugarcane, corn, cotton, tobacco, rice, citrus, pineapples, peanuts, cattle, sorghum, goats and sheep. Main industries in the country are mining and forestry, as well as wood pulp, sugar, soft drink concentrates, textile and clothing. The country's natural resources are asbestos, clay, coal, forests, hydropower, gold and diamond deposits and quarry stone. The country's main trading partner is South Africa, and the two economies are very closely linked. Other trading partners include EU, US, Mozambique, Singapore and Japan.
Swaziland's geography is extremely biodiverse, ranging from tropical areas of rainforest to large tracts of desert in the southeast. There are many nature reserves in the country which try to encourage tourism to the area, with visitors coming, in particular, in the summer to see the wide array of birds native to the country.
