The majority of its population is Christian, with a diverse cultural heritage that includes an impressive literacy rate. Cameroon shares a border with Angola to the west and west-central Nigeria to the north. The country's mainland is bordered by the Gulf of Guinea to the south and southeast.nCameroon has been ruled by a succession of presidents who have pursued policies ostensibly aimed at modernizing the country and developing economic ties with neighboring countries. These efforts have met with mixed success, however, and political instability remains a serious issue. The economy is dominated by agriculture, which accounts for about 40 percent of GDP. Industry and services account for about 30 percent and 10 percent, respectively. Cameroon also has significant mineral resources, including oil reserves.nThere are numerous tourist destinations in Cameroon, including Foumban National Park and Mount Cameroons National Park. The country is also home to several significant linguistic groups, including the Bamileke, Beti, Fulbe, Hausa-Fulani, Kanuri, Krioja-Koulouba, Luba-Lulua and Tutsi.","blog
