Honduran Government!

The type of government that Honduras has is a Democratic Constitutional Republic. They are just like us by voting for a president who serves 1, 4-year term. The the president chooses his own 18 governors who then run administrative departments in each area of Honduras. Many of the people in Honduras are full agricultural meaning they rely on farming to live and to help others live. These people then import their foods to bring in a big percentage of the countries funds. The current president of Honduras is Juan Orlando Hernandez Alvarado. The three vice presidents are Ricardo Alvarez, Rosanna Guevara, and Lorena Herrera.

Events That Helped Shape Honduras!

1) Christopher Columbus didn't only just "discover" America, he also "discovered" Honduras.

2) Part of Honduras sits on the second largest coral reef in the World.

3) The 5 stars on the flag, with the middle star representing Honduras, are other countries of Central America because Honduras is the only country to touch 4 other countries of Central America.

4) Most of the Hondurans live in sub-poverty levels of living.

5) Many Hondurans are descendants from British pirates so it is completely normal to find Blonde-haired, blue-eyed Hondurans.
