Georgetown is the capital and largest city of Guyana on the mainland of South America. The city is located on the Atlantic Ocean at the mouth of the Demerara River, in the region known as Demerara-Mahaica. A retail and administrative center, and a financial services center, Georgetown is Guyana's chief seaport.
Founded by the British in 1781 and named for King George III of the United Kingdom, Georgetown long served as the capital of British Guiana. Guyana became independent from Britain in 1966 and a Co-operative Republic in 1970, when a non-executive President replaced the Governor-General.
Guyana is located on the North East Coast of South America and is its only English speaking country. Approximately 75% of the land area is still intact forest, and 2.5% is cultivated. The coastline is 1 metre to 1.5 metres below sea level at high tide necessitating an elaborate system of drainage canals.
The most valuable mineral deposits are bauxite, gold, and diamonds. The main rivers are the Demerara, Berbice, Corentyne and Essequibo.
Guyana’s population is approximately 747,884 (Census 2012) of whom 90% live along the coastal strip and banks of major rivers.
