Dominica, or officially the Commonwealth of Dominica.
Dominica is an island in the Caribbean Sea, located about halfway between the French islands of Guadeloupe (to the north) and Martinique (to the south).
Reason for Naming the country
Its name is pronounced with emphasis on the third syllable, related to its French name Dominique. Dominica has been nicknamed the "Nature Isle of the Caribbean" for its natural environment. The Caribs called the island Wai'tu kubuli, which means "Tall is her body."
