The Seychelles archipelago is the least populated nation in Africa. For a while it was a French colony along with UsefulNotes/{{Mauritius}} (they were administrated as one entity), but when the British took the islands in the [[UsefulNotes/TheNapoleonicWars Treaty of Paris]], they turned the archipelago and Mauritius into separate colonies.

The Seychelles archipelago is a tiny country located in the Western Indian Ocean, off the eastern coast of Africa and just to the northeast of Madagascar. It is simultaneously the smallest and the least populated nation populous of all African countries.

Like Mauritius and Réunion, the archipelago is practically uninhibited before the Early Modern Period, i.e. the 16th-19th century (and yet the nearby Madagascar and the Comorian archipelago already had advanced civilizations at that time,
in Africa. the case of Madagascar, from ''another part of the world''. Humans are such curious beings...). Because of the very late settlement (the 1700s), however, Seychelles is more successful to keep most of its primitive flora and fauna than the twin islands (and their unfortunate [[DumbDodoBird dodos]]).

For a while it was a French colony along with UsefulNotes/{{Mauritius}} Mauritius (they were administrated as one entity), but when the British took the islands in the [[UsefulNotes/TheNapoleonicWars Treaty of Paris]], they turned the archipelago and Mauritius into separate colonies.


Added DiffLines:

Being settled very late and with no indigenous population to speak of, the country is a definite melting pot and you can find a mixture of African, French, British, Indian, and Chinese cultures here, though the country is almost entirely Christian (whereas Mauritius is probably the most Hindu country outside of the Indian subcontinent). The official languages of the country are English, French, and a French-based creole. The latter is the main language for over 90% of the population.

The Seychelles were declared independent in 1976 as a republic within the Commonwealth. However, almost a year later a coup deposed the President and the Prime Minister assumed full power, turning the country into a one-party state and a Soviet satellite until TheGreatPoliticsMessUp.

The main attractions of the country are the SceneryPorn and the biodiversity (several unique, endemic species of flora and fauna). However, while visiting, you should be wary of the rather high crime rate in the country. It's also Africa's most developed country so that's a positive thing about the country.

->The flag combines the red/white/green colors of the socialist People's Party, which ran the islands from 1977 to 1991, with the blue/white of the Democratic Party, which briefly ran Seychelles in 1976, and the green/yellow of the liberal National Party. Blue symbolizes the sky and the Indian Ocean; yellow symbolizes the sun; red symbolizes the people; white symbolizes justice; and green symbolizes the land. The diagonal orientation of the stripes symbolize the islands' progressive outlook.
