Zimbabwe (orthographic projection)Zimbabwe used to be Southern Rhodesia. In 1970 the area became the Republic of Rhodesia. By 1978 everyone seemed to be getting along, and the black majority had the majority say in the government. By 1980, Zimbabwe was born as an independent member of the British Commonwealth of Nations.

Zimbabwe contains numerous paleolithic sites, as well as the ruins of a famous gold-trading centre that peaked in the 14-15th century.
