非洲西部外海島國，由10個火山島組成。1975年建國以來政局相當穩定，在2021年《經濟學人》的民主指數排名全球第32名，高於比利時和希臘。不過經濟表現普通，因為境內本身缺乏自然資源，再加上2017年以來一直為乾旱所苦，目前有24%的人口生活在貧窮線之下，有些城市處於糧食不安全的狀況。曾為葡萄牙殖民地，國內大部分文化承襲葡萄牙，在葡萄牙境內有個以維德角移民為主要人口的小鎮叫科瓦達莫拉(Cova da Moura)，以此可知維德角和葡萄牙的文化關聯。看2022
Year Founded: 1975
Cape Verde is an outlying island nation off the west African coast. It was a former Portuguese colony and now has a population of about 540,000. It suffers from both a lack of natural resources and the inability to grow crops economically. With a fairly low food self-sufficiency ratio, the country relies mostly on imports for its food supply. It has maintained quite good political stability since its founding in 1975. As it is situated on major African shipping routes, just the foreign currency income generated by collecting fees from docking vessels alone is enough to sustain Cape Verde's economy. Due to its lack of natural resources, the population of expatriate Cape Verdeans who have relocated abroad is even higher than the native population with a majority of them living in countries like the United States and Portugal.
