Portuguese CommonwealthEdit

Similarly to the United Kingdom, Portugal forms a Commonwealth of Nations formed by seven nations (Portugal, Angola, Mozambique, Cape Verde, São Tomé and Príncipe, Guinea-Bissau and East Timor) and two autonomous regions (Azores and Madeira). These nations, along with Brazil, Macau, Portuguese-speaking India and Equatorial Guinea, form the Community of Portuguese Language Countries. The Portuguese Commonwealth is formed by a central government (governed by the Monarch) located in Lisbon, with its constituent nations having its own flag, constitution and government. Despite Azores and Madeira having its own government, they are autonomous regions and still depends from the Portuguese Government in some political and economic aspects.
