This region consisting
of the Carib Sea, its islands
(most of which are enclosed by the sea), and the
surrounding coasts. The region is located southeast
of the Gulf of Mexico and North America, east
of Central America, and to the north of South
America. Situated largely on the Caribbean Plate,
the region comprises more than 7,000 islands,
islets, reefs, and cays. These islands, called
the West Indies, generally form island arcs that
delineate the eastern and northern edges of the
tropical Sea. The region consists
of the Antilles, divided into the larger Greater
Antilles which bound the sea on the north, the
Lesser Antilles on the south and east (including
the Leeward Antilles), the Bahamas, and the Turks
and Caicos Islands or the Lucayan Archipelago,
which are in fact in the Atlantic Ocean north
of Cuba, not in the Carib Sea.
There was a short-lived country called the Federation
of the West Indies composed of ten English-speaking
territories, all of which were then UK dependencies.
The West Indies cricket team continues to represent
many of those nations.
