Zimbabwe, which lies in south central Africa, has one of the most moderate climates in the world and is home to a wide variety of plants and animals. A former British colony, it emerged as an independent republic in 1980. War and violence has left the country in poor condition, with an unemployment rate of 70%, and an inflation rate of 500%. In spite of this, Zimbabwe has a rich cultural heritage and is known for its artwork.
