The Republic of Mozambique is commonly known as simply Mozambique, and its capital is Maputo, the largest city in the nation. The official language is Portuguese, as it was first explored by Portuguese explorer Vasco de Gama in 1498 and colonized in 1505. It gained independence in 1975, whereupon it became known as the People's Republic of Mozambique. A civil war rocked the country from 1977 until 1992, and is now a peaceful nation.
