Facts about Haiti

Administrative divisions: 10 departments (departements , singular - departement); Artibonite , Centre , Grand 'Anse , Nippes , Nord , Nord-Est , Nord-Ouest , Ouest , Sud , Sud-Est
Area: total: 27 ,750 sq km land: 27 ,560 sq km water: 190 sq km Heard Island and McDonald Islands
Background: The native Taino Amerindians - who inhabited the island of Hispaniola when it was discovered by COLUMBUS in 1492 - were virtually annihilated by Spanish settlers within 25 years. In the early 17th century , the French established a presence on Hispaniola , and in 1697 , Spain ceded to the French the western third of the island , which later became Haiti. The French colony , based on forestry and sugar-related industries , became one of the wealthiest in the Caribbean , but only through the heavy importation of African slaves and considerable environmental degradation. In the late 18th century , Haiti's nearly half million slaves revolted under Toussaint L'OUVERTURE. After a prolonged struggle , Haiti became the first black republic to declare its independence in 1804. The poorest country in the Western Hemisphere , Haiti has been plagued by political violence for most of its history. After an armed rebellion led to the forced resignation and exile of President Jean-Bertrand ARISTIDE in February 2004 , an interim government took office to organize new elections under the auspices of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH). Continued violence and technical delays prompted repeated postponements , but Haiti finally did inaugurate a democratically elected president and parliament in May of 2006.
