The Caribbean Federation, officially the Federation of Guyana and the West Indies, is a country comprised of both islands and mainland holdings in the Caribbean Sea and North Atlantic, in addition to Central and South America.

British Belize and British Guiana represent the mainland holdings of the Federation. British Belize is bordered by Mexico and Centroamerica, while British Guiana is bordered by Venezuela, Brazil, and Dutch Guiana.

History

The 1921 peace treaty between Britain and Germany left the British still in control of its colonies, but the general strike and resulting revolution meant that the colonies of the Empire were effectively cut adrift. Some, particularly in the Pacific, were occupied by Germany, but others managed to survive as independent entities. In the interests of security and restoring the Empire, the British Caribbean and South American colonies continued to recognize the sovereignty of the British monarch now in exile in Canada, but chose to form a federation.

The new Caribbean Federation also incorporated French Guiana, which Britain had occupied after the French government collapsed. Throughout the 1920s into the 1930s, the Caribbean Federation struggled to carve out a niche for itself. Trade links were set up with the United States, Brazil, Canada, and the French government holdout in North Africa, but a lack of any real industrial base in the region has limited their growth.
