Suriname

Suriname (also Suriname; Sranan Tongo Sranan [SRA: NAN]) is a country in South America. It is bordered to the north by the Atlantic Ocean, to the east by French Guiana, on the south by Brazil and to the west by Guyana. The country owes its name probably to the tribe of súrinen, which was distributed by the Arawaks from this area. National Day is November 25, the day of independence from the Netherlands in the 1975th
