An Island on the Atlantic east coast of Canada. In 1949 they became Canadians but before that they were administered by U.K. Economy based on natural resources and tourism. Fishery collapsed in the 80's and never recovered. Fortunately oil exploitation expanded and helped the province finances a little bit but prices fell in the last 4 years and the province struggles financially again. Most folks in NFLD are nice but not more than any other places in Canada just the same. Also like any other place in Canada, NFLD has its quota of complete assholes and racist idiots just the same.
