Guinea-Bissau, authoritatively the Republic of Guinea-Bissau, is a nation in West Africa that covers 36,125 square kilometers (13,948 sq mi). Guinea-Bissau was once part of the kingdom of Gabu, just as a major aspect of the Mali Empire. Portions of this kingdom persevered until the eighteenth century, while a couple of others were under some standard by the Portuguese Empire since the sixteenth century. In the nineteenth century, it was colonized as Portuguese Guinea. Upon freedom, announced in 1973 and perceived in 1974, the name of its capital, Bissau, was added to the nation's name to forestall disarray with Guinea (some time ago French Guinea). Guinea-Bissau has a background marked by political flimsiness since freedom, and no chosen president has effectively served an entire five-year term.

Bissau is the capital city of the African Republic of Guinea-Bissau. Is situated on the Geba River estuary, off the Atlantic Ocean, and is Guinea-Bissau's biggest city, real port, and its managerial and military focus. The city was established in 1687 by Portugal as a strengthened port and exchanging focus. In 1942 it turned into the capital of Portuguese Guinea. After the assertion of freedom by the counter pilgrim guerrillas of PAIGC in 1973, the capital of the renegade domains was proclaimed to be Madina do Boe, while Bissau remained the frontier capital. Whenever Portugal allowed freedom, following the military upset of April 25 in Lisbon, Bissau turned into the capital of the new autonomous state.
