Madagascar is Africa's New Zealand. It is an island off of its continental east coast and is located in the Indian Ocean with a bunch of Indians. Malagasy culture identifies closely with Kiwi culture, which is good, because if it identified closely with African culture, its culture would probably not be real. Because of its proximity to Africa, Madagascar is in sizeable danger of not existing already, so don't push it, Madagascar. It also claims to be home to several animals that don't exist elsewhere, such as the lemur, tenrec, and aye-aye. This is probably another sad attempt to get people to care about whether it exists or not.
