Bermuda and Its Elegant Lifestyle

To maintain its elegant lifestyle, Bermuda has sometimes been governed as strictly as a dictatorship.

Hotels, for instance, are limited to the number of rooms they may build at a particular time.

Only a certain number of cruise ships may be in port on a given day.

Automobiles can travel no faster than 20 mph (35 kph) and cars are for residents only, one per household.

Yet the strong-handed approach has worked to everyone's benefit.

Unlike many Caribbean isles, poverty and unemployment are not a major problem.

Bermuda's per-capita income is among the world's highest.
