Sharing the western half of Hispaniola island with Dominican Republic to the east, the HAITI is administratively divided into 10 Departments (French: D├ępartements) as well as over 40 Arrondissements. In alphabetical order, Haiti's provinces are L'Artibonite, Centre, Grand'Anse, Nippes, Nord, Nord-Est, Nord-Ouest, Ouest (location of Port-au-Prince, Haiti's capital), Sud, and Sud-Est. Established in 2003 from Grand'Anse department, Nippes is technically translated from French into English as clothing — or duds! On the GeoFact of the Day Blog map above, the country's major islands are labeled near green text. Haiti has an affinity for its wildlife and livestock, enough to name a couple islands after beloved creatures. Haiti's southernmost island is essentially named Cow (Vache), while the northernmost one is named Turtle (Tortue, or Tortuga).
