(Last Updated On: )

Sometimes, it can be difficult for us to praise the positive traits of a person or institute we dislike. But differences between people exist everywhere because we cannot think and believe in the same things. This is why it is foolish to think that everyone that does not agree with us on all things must be a horrible person. The same can be said for states that do not follow the general rules of governance. There are communist and socialist states that the rest of the world love to hate. But if they are doing a good job of taking care of their citizens, what can anyone blame them for.


Located closer to the Caribbean, Cuba is a country of 11 million people. Like other states of the region, it spent a couple of centuries under Spanish rule. The colonization lasted until the Spanish American war, after which Cuba got nominal independence. Things changed in the country when it came under the leadership of Fidel Castro. It has been a communist state since 1965. During the rule of Castro, the country became involved in military activities throughout the world. It mostly sided with rebels fighting against the state.

Many countries have accused Cuba of human rights violations over the years. However, it has a high rank on the Human Development Index. The healthcare and education sectors of the country are known for their high performance. Cuba has a stable economy, which is mainly supported by the tourism industry. Export of sugar, tobacco, and coffee also contribute to the economy of the country. Culturally, Cuba is closer to Latin America. It has retained a lot of values from its Spanish rulers. The official language is Spanish. The population of the country is diverse, but people of mixed race with Spanish and African origin make up the majority.
