Fact:
It's People
Its religion was to pay tribute to their ancestors and dead family members.
The Luba empires army was small because there weren't any really military threats.
Congo After Colonization
When Congo was part of the Belgium Empire it suffered. The Population for el Congo dropped severely during the reign of Belgium. It dropped from 20-30 million people to about 3 million.

This led it into a crisis due to its debts and scarcity in economical resources.
The main causes of this drop were that Europeans brought diseases with them. A major long term effect was that when given in 1959 their independence
the Congo was not prepared for it.
