Central America is a region in the southern tip of North America, bordered by Mexico to the north, Colombia to the southeast, the Caribbean Sea to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west and south. Central America consists of seven relatively small countries: Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama.

Central America has several supranational institutions, with all countries not necessarily being members. Wikipedia claims that "there is anecdotal evidence that demonstrates that Salvadorans, Panamanians, Costa Ricans, Guatemalans, Hondurans and Nicaraguans continue to maintain a Central American identity. [...] Belizeans are mostly associated to be culturally West Indian rather than Central America." Belize has an unusually large share with African ancestry.
