Swaziland has the highest HIV/AIDS prevalence in the world and an estimated 70% of people live below the poverty line. Life expectancy is 49 years, almost a half of the UK rate. Freedom of speech is restricted, all political parties are banned and any opposition to the monarchy is heavily punished. Much of the country’s wealth goes to support the King and his entourage.  It is a beautiful country ravaged by poor governance and HIV/AIDS.
