Geography.
Grenada includes the island of the same name (311 km²) and the Southern Grenadines, in the arch of islands formed by the Lesser Antilles. The climate is tropical, tempered by the trade winds.

Government


Formerly a British colony, Grenada gained independence on 7 February 1974. During the following years a Marxist government was formed (1979), gaining support from Cuba, and for this reason Grenada the US military intervened on 25 October 1983. The British Sovereign is represented by a Governor General who appoints the 13 members of the Senate and formally designates the Prime Minister; the House (15 members) is elected by direct suffrage for five years.
