Mauritius ( ( listen); French: Maurice), officially the Republic of Mauritius (French: République de Maurice), is an island country in the Mascarene archipelago of the Indian Ocean, located 2,000 kilometres (1,200 mi) off the southeast coast of Africa. The constitution of Mauritius declares the country's sovereignty over Mauritius Island, Rodrigues, Agaléga, St. Brandon and the disputed territories of Tromelin and the Chagos Archipelago. The country's nearest neighbours include Reunion, a French overseas department, and Madagascar. Mauritius is the most densely populated country in Africa.Geologically, Mauritius is located above the submerged former continent of Mauritia. Mauritius and Rodrigues are islands of volcanic origin. As part of the Mascarene islands, the country has a distinct ecoregion with rich biodiversity. Mauritius Island features an extensive range of mountains and rock formations with a central plateau that is 400 metres (1,300 ft) above sea level. It is widely speculated that Mauritius was known to early Phoenecian and Arab traders. After Vasco Da Gama opened a new European shipping route to Asia, Mauritius was included in Portuguese maps. The uninhabited island came under Dutch control in the 16th century and was named after Maurice, Prince of Orange. Mauritius was a French colony between 1715 and 1810, with the name Isle de France. Under the French, the European elite built a plantation economy with slaves imported from Africa. The British Empire took control of the colony in 1810. The abolition of slavery was implemented in 1835. The capital city of Port Louis developed as a busy port of call for ships traveling between Europe and Asia until the Suez Canal opened. British Mauritius was a crown colony which received migrants from the Indian subcontinent and the Far East. Seychelles was separated from Mauritius in 1903. Indentured servitude was ended in 1917. In 1948, an elected Legislature was established. In 1959, the first election based on universal suffrage was held. Mauritius gained independence as a Commonwealth dominion in 1968, with Queen Elizabeth as its last monarch represented by a Governor General. The sovereign state became a republic in 1992. Mauritius is a melting pot with four major communities, including Indo-Mauritians, Franco-Mauritians, Afro-Mauritians and Sino-Mauritians. English continues to be the language of government, while French and Mauritian Creole are widely used for culture and daily life. The economy of Mauritius, once dependent on sugar and rum exports, has diversified into financial services, manufacturing, logistics and tourism. In 2018, Mauritius was ranked 49th in the Global Financial Centres Index. The country is a parliamentary republic modeled on the Westminster system. The island of Rodrigues has autonomy. The legal system has elements of both English and French law, including appeals to the Privy Council and influences from the Napoleonic Code. Mauritius has the highest Human Development Index in Africa. It registers the third-highest per capita GDP (PPP) among economies of the African continent.As a trading nation, Mauritius gives priority to its relations with Western nations, India and China. It is a member of the African Union, the Commonwealth of Nations, La Francophonie, the Indian Ocean Commission, the Southern African Development Community, COMESA, the Indian Ocean Rim Association and the World Trade Organization.
