Equatorial Guinea is a republic on the west coast of Africa, and includes an area on the mainland called Rio Muni (or Mbini) and five islands: Bioko, Corisco, Great Elobey, Little Elobey, and Annobon. The total land area is 28,052 square kilometres (10,831 square miles). Rio Muni is bordered on the north by Cameroon and on the east and south by Gabon. The Gulf of Guinea separates Rio Muni from the islands.
Traditional customs include witchcraft, traditional music, gorilla and elephant hunting and storytelling which are all important to the Fang people, who form the majority of the population on the mainland. Spanish is the official language.
