    Dominica is a lush, green island nation that is located between the French overseas territories of Guadeloupe and Martinique, in what is known as the Caribbean basin. It remains a part of the British Commonwealth having been granted independence from British rule in 1978. It enjoys a parliamentary democracy within the Commonwealth of Nations with the President as the head of state, and the Prime Minister heads the cabinet.

    Interestingly, Dominica was the last island in the Caribbean to be colonized by Europe. The people largely speak French Creole.

    Dominica is associated with and is a member of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS). In an effort to diversify the economy, the government inspires investments in non-traditional agricultural exports. Although the island is vulnerable to hurricanes, Dominica experiences tropical weather almost all year-round.
