Guyana (orthographic projection)Guyana is a country of lush rain forests, many rivers, gorgeous waterfalls, and prize-winning rum. The name means 'Land of Many Waters' and the country is characterized by a friendly multicultural society.

Independence from Britain was achieved in 1966, and in 1970 Guyana became a republic. Sugar exports are the largest single part of Guyana's economy and it is famous for its Demerara sugar.

Culturally, Guyana is very similar to English-speaking Caribbean, and Guyana is a member of the Caribbean Community even though it is geographically separated from all the other Caribbean nations.
