Dominica, situated midway between Guadeloupe to the north and Martinique to the south, was first discovered and named by Colombus in 1493. It changed hands many times between the French and the British until 1783 when it became permanently British. Dominica was a member of the Leeward Islands federation 1871-1940, Windward Islands federation 1940-1956, West Indies federation 1958-1962. In 1967 Dominica obtained a grand autonomy "Statehood" which limited relations with Great Britain to foreign affairs and defense. It became an independent republic in 1978. For later currency issues see British Caribbean Territories (1950-1964) and East Caribbean States (1965-present). For a more detailed country profile, see CIA World Factbook on Dominica.
