how many countries are there in Africa again?

Demonstrating my theory that America cannot handle more than 3 simultaneous stories about Africa at the same time (Sudan, Zimbabwe, and then pick your third, usually the Horn or Congo or Liberia) comes this Slate story about Equatorial Guinea, and how little anybody knows about or covers it. Fascinating read.

And for the record, it does routinely make Forbes's list of top 10 corrupt countries.
