The West Indies Federation, also known as the Federation of the West Indies, was a former nation of the Caribbean. The short-lived union was an attempt to unify several of Britain's colonies in the region (similar to the successful federations of Australia and Canada). The federation lasted from 1958 until 1962.
The federation consisted of modern day Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, the Cayman Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Jamaica, Montserrat, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, and the Turks and Caicos Islands.
The West Indies Federation has come up several times in the multiverse. Aside from being successful, several timelines include the federation's expansion to include other British colonies in the region, and other going even further to include the entire Antilles. Examples include:
- British West Indies (British Louisiana)
- West Indies Federation (13 Fallen Stars)
- West Indies Federation (Central Italy)
- Federation of the West Indies (Concert of Europe)
- West Indies Federation (Dai-tō-a)
- West Indies Federation (Twilight of a New Era)
