The Comoros has a population of approximately 800,000 (2011 estimate), making it one of the most densely populated country in Africa. The capital and largest city is Moroni. The country enjoys a nominal GDP of US$532 million and a per capita nominal GDP of US$798 (both 2009 estimates).

Most of the population of the Comoros are Muslims, the result of Arab influence and trade. It was made a French colony in 1912 and gained its independence in 1978. The post-independence years were one of political turmoil. Even in recent years, the political landscape of the Comoros continues to be turbulent. The country has experienced over 20 coups and attempted coups since independence.
