Introduction

The Kingdom of Eswatini is located in Southern Africa. It was formerly known as Swaziland. Since the renaming took place in 2018, it is still commonly referred to as Swaziland. Bordered by South Africa and Mozambique, this is one of the smallest nations one can find in Africa. 

In 2020, there were approximately 1.2 million people. Their GDP (PPP) was $13 billion in total. However, thanks to a small population, it translates into an above-average GDP per capita in the Sub-Saharan region of Africa - a little over $11,000.
