Cuba

Cuba is a small island nation in the Caribbean which has lived subject to a harsh US blockade since 1959, after the Cuban Revolution overthrew the corrupt US-backed government and replaced it with a one-party state which has, nonetheless, massively improved the standard of living of ordinary Cubans through huge investments in healthcare and education (and could no doubt have done more if not for the crippling US blockade).
