The population was 79,164 in 1999 and is growing slowly as a result of out-migration.

The Gran'bla wanted to reestablish ties with France.

Upper-class Creoles eat meals that consist of both fish and meat.New houses are often constructed in an architecture common to many former British colonies, such that there is often a flat roof with a slight slope and windows with many horizontally arranged panes that can be tilted in order to allow easy circulation of air.
