A TPLAC in southern Africa, bordering Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Swaziland and South Africa.

Had a massively debilitating civil war from the late seventies until it ran out of steam in 1992, with Marxists taking on a group supported initially by Rhodesia and then South Africa. Typically this started only a couple of years after independence.

Despite being a former Portuguese colony they successfully applied to join the Commonwealth as their neighbours were in it and they didn't want to feel left out.

The last few years have seen considerable growth in Mozambique's economy, partly due to finally getting a government that understands the value of stability and reasonably good governance, and partly due to an influx of people from Zimbabwe who are either white settlers escaping Mugabe's lunacy or former Mozambicans returning now the civil war's over. That being said, it's still one of the poorest countries even in Africa.
