These countries are Cameroon, Chad, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Rwanda, Burundi, Sao Tome and Principe, and South Sudan.

Central Africa is known for its biodiversity, with large rainforests and many species of wildlife, including gorillas, elephants, and chimpanzees. The region is also home to several indigenous communities, many of whom have unique cultural practices and traditions.

The economy of Central Africa is dominated by the production of natural resources such as oil, gas, and minerals. However, many of the countries in the region are considered among the poorest in the world, with high levels of poverty, low economic development, and social instability.
