Our summer game

For this last post in August, we propose you a game: you have to discover a country following our clues about its living standards. Take a world map and… good luck!
These are the four clues:

1.- At present (data of 1 January 2011) 1.7 million inhabitants of this country are immigrants in foreign countries. 
2.- 20.8% of its population (that is, 1 out of every 5 people) lives below the poverty threshold.
3.- There are one million illiterate people.
4.- Despite being banned by law since the 19th century, slavery is still present.

Any guess about the country? At least, can you say in which part of the planet it is located? If you want to check the solution, click here
Did you guess it right, or were you thinking of another country? Maybe your guess was towards the south?
