Grenada was ruled by the French from 1650 to 1783, and then the British. It became independent in 1974, but eccentric leaders and radical revolutions made for a stormy decade. In 1983, a democratic government was restored. Today, Grenada is more prosperous than most developing countries. Although poverty exists, few starve because the farmlands are fertile. There is complete freedom of religion. The vast majority of Grenadians identify as Christian, and religion plays an important role in society. Birth, marriage, and death are all marked by religious ceremonies.
