Grenada is composed of three Caribbean islands: Grenada, Carriacou, and Petite Martinique. It follows Indonesia as the world’s second-largest producer of nutmeg – a spice that also features on the nation’s flag. Grenada’s other major crop exports are mace, cinnamon, and cloves, although cocoa and bean-to-bar chocolate are also important. Grenada’s white-sand beaches allow it to perform strongly in the tourism market, and its prestigious medical school at St George’s University ensures a flow of international students and staff. Grenada was invaded in 1983 by the United States, which, in a matter of weeks, ousted the then-communist regime and made way for today’s democratic state.
