Angola The Republic of Angola, or República de Angola in Portuguese, is a large country in southern Africa. Its capital is Luanda. Angola is a former Portuguese colony, from which it attained independence in 1975. After that, the country suffered from a civil war that ended only in 2002 , and of which the remnants of still linger today. It has many natural resources, including oil, diamonds (second-biggest producer in the sub-Saharian Africa, actually) and arable land, though the nearly thirty years of the civil war largely destroyed them, replacing them with minefields. Since the war ended, Angola's GDP has gone up rapidly, courtesy of China
