Dominica is an independent democratic republic located in the Eastern Caribbean Sea. It is possibly best known for its scuba diving and stunning nature reserves (60% of the island remains forested). A former British colony, Dominica gained independence from Great Britain in 1978 yet retains a parliamentary system of government based on the Westminster model. With English as its official language and an entrenched British based system of law Dominica has become increasingly popular as an International Offshore Financial Centre since the inception of its Offshore industry in 1996.
