Guinea is a Third World Country with a poor literacy rate. Guinea is Poor partly because conflict in the Ivory Coast, Liberia and Sierra Leone have hindered Economic development in Guinea. Guinea has a history of Dictatorships, coups and bad government. Elections were more recently held and the European Union is giving economic aid to Guinea. It's unclear if the elections were fully Democratic.
