A prepaid postcard from Cuba! A new country for my collection!
The Republic of Cuba is an island country in the Caribbean. Havana is the largest city in Cuba and the country's capital. In 1492, Christopher Columbus landed on and claimed the island now occupied by Cuba, for the Kingdom of Spain.
Cuba is home to over 11 million people and is the most populous island nation in the Caribbean, as well as the largest by area. Cuba has a 99.8% literacy rate, an infant death rate lower than some developed countries, and an average life expectancy of 77.64. In 2006, Cuba was the only nation in the world which met the WWF's definition of sustainable development. (source)
