Kingdom of Swaziland: Autonomy for the Swazis of southern Africa was guaranteed by the British in the late 19th century; independence was granted in 1968.
Student and labor unrest during the 1990s pressured the monarchy (one of the oldest on the continent) to grudgingly allow political reform and greater democracy.
Swaziland recently surpassed Botswana as the country with the world's highest known rates of HIV/AIDS infection.
