Welcome to one of the world's smallest countries, St.Kitts or Christopher Island is one of many islands discovered by Christopher Columbus during his days of exploring West Indies. This twin-island federation is the smallest island in the Caribbean and American continent and covers a landmass of 104 square miles, which harbors its small population. St. Kitts and Nevis population as of 2020 stood at  53,199 and had been growing at a very slow rate.

St. Kitts and Nevis borders countries like Antigua and Barbuda, Sint Maarten, Venezuela, Montserrat, and Saint Barthélemy. The country has two major religions: Christianity, 94.6% in attendance, and Hinduism, which covers 1.5% of the religious group.

A citizen of this country is referred to as a Nevisian or  Kittitian, and Queen Elizabeth II controls it, though they still have the office of the Governor-General and the prime minister's office, respectively.
