Compared to other African countries, SOUTH AFRICA has a more financially prosperous economy. The Netherlands and British Empire colonized South Africa, and the country achieved independence in 1961. There are 6 bordering countries: Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe. South Africa also borders the Indian Ocean and the South Atlantic Ocean. There are 3 capitals, each for different purposes. Bloemfontein is the judicial capital, Cape Town is the legislative capital, and Pretoria is the executive capital. The currency is the South African Rand, and its ISO 4217 currency code is ZAR.
