Suriname Overview

Suriname is a state in northeast South America with (2018) 576,000 residents. The capital is Paramaribo. The constitution gives the office of president a lot of power. He is head of state, commander in chief of the armed forces and head of government rolled into one. In terms of area and population, Suriname is the smallest independent country in South America. Three quarters of the national territory are covered by impenetrable tropical rainforest. In the north there is a 15–40 km wide savannah belt and the 25–100 km wide coastal zone, which form the main agricultural and settlement area of ​​Suriname. The climate is tropical and hot.

The population is very diverse. It consists of Creoles with African-European ancestors, the Marons (descendants of fled black African slaves), people of Indian and Indonesian descent and the indigenous population. The latter partly still leads its traditional life in the inaccessible interior of the country. Besides Christians there are Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, Bahais and Jews. The tropical country, which is rich in ethnic groups, is not a cultural melting pot, because its residents adhere to the religions and traditions brought with them by their ancestors. Religious buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries, such as Christian churches, Jewish synagogues and Hindu temples, stand side by side, and each ethnic group celebrates its own festivals and holidays. The official language is Dutch, but only a few speak the language of the former colonial rulers. Sranangtongo (Taki-Taki), a pidgin language based on English, is used for general communication. Other widely used languages ​​are Hindi and Javanese.

The area of ​​today’s Suriname was already around 1000 BC. Settled by Indians. Spaniards discovered the area in 1499, but showed no interest in the impassable jungle and marshland. In 1816 it became Dutch colonial property and in 1975 it was given independence as Suriname. After military rule in the 1980s, the nation has been on a difficult path back to democracy since 1992. The democratically elected President 2010–2020 was, of all things, ex-military ruler Desi Bouterse . In 2020 Chandrikapersad Santokhi (* 1959) was elected as his successor. The main pillar of the economy is the extraction and processing of bauxite, which is the basic material for aluminum production. Other important raw materials are gold, wood and oil.
