Swasiland: one of the least developed countries in the world

Swasiland borders South Africa and Mozambique. With an area of 17.400 square kilometers it is the second smallest country in Africa. It is an absolute monarchy. The country is very less developed, nearly 70 percent of the people are living in poverty. Sexual violence is very common. According to UNICEF Swasiland has one of the highest Aids-rates in the word. Women have not a lot of rights. Ethnical and sexual minorities are discriminated by the government. Maybe tourism can help  the country with developing and opening for more modern ideas like equality.
