The origin of the name Bahamas is ambiguous. It is thought to derive from the Spanish baja mar, meaning shallow seas - others trace the name to the Lucayan word for Grand Bahama Island, ba-ha-ma or large upper middle land.

Based on the pillars of tourism and financial services, the Bahamas economy has prospered since the 1950s. Today, the country enjoys the third highest per capita income in the western hemisphere, and the highest in the Caribbean excluding the dependent territory of the Cayman Islands.

Despite this, the country still faces significant challenges in areas such as education, health care, international narcotics trafficking, correctional facilities and illegal immigration. The urban renewal project has been launched in recent years to help build up dilapidated urban areas and arrest social decline in the main islands.
