The Caribbean is a vast region of the North America continent that consists of the Caribbean Sea, its islands (some enclosed by the Caribbean Sea and some bordering both the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean), and the neighboring coasts. This region is east of Central America, southeast of the Gulf of Mexico and the North American mainland, and then to the north of South America. The Caribbean region is made up of 25 independent countries and other smaller territories.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) normally ranks the world’s poorest and richest countries according to the purchasing power parity (PPP) per capita, that takes into account the relative cost of living and the inflation percentages of the countries to analyze living standards among the different countries.
