Officially titled the Republic of Haiti this is a Caribbean country. It occupies the western, smaller portion of the island of Hispaniola, in the Greater Antillean archipelago, which it shares with the Dominican Republic. Ayiti (“land of high mountains”) was the indigenous Taíno name for the island. In French, the country is called “La Perle des Antilles” (The Pearl of the Antilles), because of its natural beauty.
The country’s highest point is Pic la Selle, at 2,680 metres (8,793 ft). Both by area and population, Haiti is the third largest Caribbean nation (after Cuba and the Dominican Republic), with 27,750 sqkm (10,714 sq mi) and an estimated 9 million people, with just under a million of which live in the capital city, Port-au-Prince. French and Haitian Creole are the official languages.
With its 9.7 million people, the country is the most populous full member-state of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). The country is also a member of the Latin Union. In 2012, this Caribbean country announced its intention to seek associate membership status in the African Union. It is the poorest country in the Americas.
