Rwanda is a country that lies in the east-central Africa. This small landlocked nation is surrounded by Tanzania, Congo, Burundi and Uganda. Rwanda is one of the highly populated nations in Africa and its population is about 10.1 million. Most of the people in the country depend on agriculture for their livelihood. Rwanda is the first country in the world to have a national legislature that consists of mainly women. Rwanda is a small country and it is about half the size of Scotland. It is located a few degrees on the south of the equator.
The country does not have many natural resources and its economy is dependent on subsistence agriculture by the farmers of the country. In it year 2006, it was reported that almost 40% of its Gross Domestic Product came from agriculture and farms. For the past two decades or so, the production of food and the sizes of the farms have been decreasing because of the relocation of the displaced population. The two chief crops that Rwanda exports to other countries are tea and coffee. Rwanda's industrial sector is not just uncompetitive but it is also small. The tourism industry is now growing rapidly and it brings in revenue for the country.
The people from Rwanda are called Rwandan.
