A Spanish colony, Cuba became nominally independent after the Spanish-American War of 1898 and achieved full autonomy in 1934. Fidel Castro led a communist revolution in 1959, and held the presidency until replaced by his brother Raúl Castro in 2008. The country suffered under a US trade embargo and, after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Eastern bloc in 1991, lost much of its trade.
