These repositories of evil systematically oppress their own people, deny human rights and civil liberties, limit personal freedom, and suppress economic opportunity. Worst of the Worst identifies and characterizes the world's most odious states, singling out those few that are aggressive beyond their own borders and can hence be characterized as rogue states. Equatorial Guinea is profiled in the book.

This study covers the outlook products in Equatorial Guinea. For the year reported, estimates are given for the latent demand, or potential industry earnings (P.I.E.), for the Equatorial Guinea (in millions of U.S. dollars). Comparative benchmarks allow the reader to quickly gauge Equatorial Guinea vis-a-vis regional and global totals. Using econometric models which project fundamental economic dynamics within each country and across countries, latent demand estimates are created. This report does not discuss the specific players in the market serving the latent demand, nor specific details at the product level. The study also does not consider short-term cyclicalities that might affect realized sales. The study, therefore, is strategic in nature, taking an aggregate and long-run view, irrespective of the players or products involved.
