Cuba, officially the Republic of Cuba (Spanish: República de Cuba), is an island nation in the Caribbean. Throughout the Cold War, Cuba was the only Communist state in the western hemisphere, and continues to have a strong alliance with the Soviet Union. During 1994, the country was plagued by protests against Fidel Castro and his government, forcing him to resign. After this, major political reformations began in the country and relations with the United States were re-established.
