Cameroon, located on the Gulf of Guinea on the West African coast, is more than 50 percent forested. Most of the cities are in the south. The former German colony was divided between Great Britain and France in 1919 after 50 years of German rule. In 1960 the French part became independent as Cameroon, in 1961 the south of the British part fell to Cameroon and the north went to Nigeria. Cameroon is a member of the Commonwealth of Nations. It is the first country to join the Confederation without first being a colony of Great Britain.
