About Panama: 

It is situated in Latin America at the southern tip of Central America, sharing borders with South America. It is flanked by Costa Rica to the west and Colombia to the southeast, with the Caribbean Sea to the north and the Pacific Ocean to the south. Panama City, its capital, is the largest city, housing nearly half of its over 4 million inhabitants. Panama seceded from Colombia in 1903 with U.S. support, facilitating the construction of the Panama Canal. The canal’s revenue remains a significant contributor to Panama’s economy, along with commerce, banking, and tourism.
