While most people think of the Bahamas as a region, rather than a country, it is actually a Commonwealth, composed of 29 islands and a large number of smaller cays. It is a part of the British Commonwealth, yet is fully independent from Britain.
The best known aspect of the Bahamas is it's tourism industry. In fact the Bahamas has become the de facto in holidays of it's type, often being the first location thought of.
This is in part due to it's collosal tourism industry, which generates way over half of the countries total income, as well as providing over half the jobs for the country.
Unfortunately for anyone importing goods in to the country, the Bahamas impose a very heavy handed tax regime. While these taxes, and the tourism industry, has made it the third richest country in America - following the United States and Canada - it can be a problem.
