To clear a couple of things off (& I quote)): "The first Caribbean country to gain its independence was Haiti in 1804, and it was followed by the Dominican Republic in 1844 and Cuba in 1902."
Go to this link and see for yourselves that us people from the Dominican Republic are not lying:

Dominican Republic is a half-island country located in the Caribbean.

We have one of the worst education systems in Latin America; the government refuses to invest the (by-law) minimum of 4% of the budget in education.

We have a large illegal immigrant population of Haitians who cross the border seeking to re-establish themselves on this side of the island.

Underage drinking is a custom here; allowing minors to go into clubs is an everyday sighting.

Culturally rich, the Dominican Republic was the first colony in America to have a university (Universidad Autonoma de Santo Domingo, founded 1538 if I'm not mistaken), the first cathedral, and being the birth place to the music genres of Merengue and Bachata. Other musical styles that have great popularity here are Rap and "Dembow".

Unfortunately, this country is controlled by the 5-10% of the population that in election time "buys" votes of the uneducated and gullible by bribing them with food and false promises. This keeps the country chained to a vicious circle from which it seems it cannot unbind itself.

The Dominican Republic is a poor country, ravaged by drugs and corruption, and from the looks of it, this might be the case for a while.

We got nice beaches, plantain, mangu, sancocho, red soda, a very colourful vocabulary, (mostly) kind and helpful, but retarded people, and one of the most beautiful national anthems.
Corruption, drugs, and plantain are Dominican Republic's main exports.

Contrary to popular belief, the Dominican Republic is not the first spanish speaking country to gain its independence. Mexico gained its independence in 1821 after an eleven year war.
MCSD has gone off the deep end, The Dominican Republic was not the first spanish speaking country to gain its independence.
