The Bermuda 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.
