NATIONS OF THE WORLD
Location: An island 570 mi. off the east coast of the U.S. Size: 20 sq. mi. (53 sq. km.). Population: 64,000 (59% black, 41% white).
Who Really Rules: Though Bermuda is a colony of the U.K., subject to British rule, its economy and government are controlled by an oligarchy of white merchant and professional families. The oligarchy imports several thousand professionals from England to help manage the tourist industry and the financial companies that operate the tax haven. These temporary white residents are eligible to vote and have helped keep the white minority in power. Black Bermudians generally hold menial jobs in the tourist industry.
