What makes this nation unique?

It was colonized by Africans. I find this very unique because most African countries were colonized by European powers.

The Economy

Vanilla, cloves, copra, and ylang ylang, which gave the Comoros the name "Perfume Islands," account for most exports to France, Germany, and the United States.

Seventy percent of the active population engages in subsistence and commercial farming. Over-exploited forests on Ndzuani produce kitchen wood. Cattle and goats are slaughtered during festivals. Six thousand state employees and two South African tourist hotels account for the service sector.
