The Republic of Seychelles is an island country with an archipelago of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean. It is about 1500 kilometers east of the African continent, and spreads out over a vast area of ocean north of Madagascar. Independent from Great Britain since 1975, the country nevertheless is far more French after years of early French settlement and influence. Since independence, tourism has grown dramatically to become the primary industry of Seychelles, overtaking plantation agriculture.
