Belize is a country located on the north eastern coast of Central America. It is the only country in the area where English is the official language, although Creole and Spanish are more commonly spoken. Belize is bordered to the north by Mexico, to the south and west by Guatemala and to the east by the Caribbean Sea. Its mainland is about 290 km (180 mi) long and 110 km (68 mi) wide.

With 22,960 square kilometres (8,860 sq mi) of land and a population of only 312,698 (2010 census), Belize possesses the lowest population density in Central America.

Belize is a diverse society, comprising many cultures and languages. It is the only nation in the region with a British colonial heritage, but as a part of the Western Caribbean Zone, it also shares a common heritage with the Caribbean portions of other Central American countries.

After conning Gail McIntyre out of £40,000 in February 2013, Lewis Archer fled to Belize from where he was unable to be extradited; even if caught.
