Haiti continues its great path! Feel sorry for these people, but would be a great little place to test run colonization 2.0! Take over the govt, put in place industry, police, legal and health systems then hire people to work these jobs under scrutiny for several generations. In 100 years, I bet you could have a completely different country.
