Country Overview

Guayna is a presidential republic on the northeast coast of South America with the capital Georgetown. It is about two thirds the size of Germany and the westernmost of the Guiana countries, which also include Suriname and French Guiana. The mountainous landscapes in the interior of Guyana are part of the Guiana Mountains. The 20–70 km wide coastal plain is partly 1–5 m below sea level and has to be protected by dikes. Around 70% of the country is covered by species-rich tropical rainforest. The population is concentrated in the coastal plain and around Georgetown. The largest ethnic group with around 40% are the descendants of Indian contract workers who came to Guyana after the abolition of slavery (1833). Around 29% of the population are black, whose ancestors were abducted from Africa by European colonial powers. 20% are of mixed origin, 10% mostly indigenous people living in inaccessible inland areas. The area of ​​today’s Guyana was founded in 1499 by the Spaniard A. de Hojeda discovered. At the end of the 16th and beginning of the 17th centuries, Dutch, English and French settlements emerged, which subsequently changed hands frequently. Ultimately in British possession since 1816, under the name British Guiana since 1831, Guyana became a crown colony in 1928. In 1966 it gained independence under the Commonwealth of Nations. In 1979 the country became a republic. As a former British colony, Guyana is now the only English-speaking nation on the Latin American continent. Due to its colonial history, it is culturally closely linked to the Caribbean islands. Colonial architecture in the Gothic style has been preserved in the old town of Georgetown. The canals that characterize the cityscape were created by Dutch settlers. A contemporary writer who is well-known beyond national borders is J. Carew . His most important novel is »Black Midas« (1958; German »Schwarzer Midas«), which addresses the search for identity of the black population (Caribbean literature). Despite its mineral wealth, Guyana is one of the poorer nations in South America. The main pillars of the economy are the agricultural sector and gold and bauxite mining. The country could become a major global oil producer after huge oil deposits were discovered off the coast in 2015.
