NATIONS AND THEIR RULERS

REUNION

Size: 969 sq. mi. (2,512 sq. km.).

Population: 500,000.

Reunion, an island in the Indian Ocean, is of volcanic origin. Its tallest peak rises above 10,000 ft., and volcanic eruptions have continued in this century. An overseas department of France, Reunion is the last of the many French territories that once dotted the Indian Ocean. Though there is an anticolonialist movement, led by the Communist party of Reunion, there is no immediate prospect of independence. Sugar accounts for about 90% of its exports, and the sugar industry, represented by an effective lobby in Paris, dominates the politics of the island.
