Saint Vincent and its dependencies (the islands of Bequia, Mustique, Mayreau, Canouan and Union, known as the Grenadines) are comprised of 32 islands and cays. Saint Vincent shares administration of the Grenadines with Grenada.

Saint Vincent and the Grenadines cover an area of 389 square kilometres, 344 of which is the island of Saint Vincent. The islands are volcanic and mountainous with a tropical climate. The islands are susceptible to hurricanes and there is a constant threat of eruption from the Soufriere volcano on Saint Vincent.

The country is a parliamentary democracy within the British Commonwealth. Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves is the head of government since December 7th 2005 and Queen Elizabeth II is the head of state. Governmental elections are due in December 2010. The country is divided into six parishes. The capital city is Kingstown.
