Lesotho & Swaziland
The two small southern African nations are ruled by monarchies and have economies heavily dependent on South Africa both for trade and for employment. They share South Africa's currency, the Rand. An enclave surrounded on all sides by South Africa, Lesotho is largely an agrarian society. Swaziland, bordered by Mozambique to the north and South Africa on all other sides, has a more developed manufacturing sector, including textiles and sugar processing.
