Aruba is a small Caribbean island and an autonomous region within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Complete independence has been discussed and shelved. Aruba is prosperous with a population just over 100,000. The Economy used to depend heavily on a petroleum refinery but now tourism is the chief earner for the island. One author suggests it is home to the world's finest sunburns. [1] [2]
