Registering domains with the Cuban .cu suffix

Is it possible to register domains with the Cuban .cu suffix? My searches online have come up with nothing, but I can't tell if this is because the market is dominated by American companies.

Try I don't speak Spanish, so I'm unsure whether it requires you to sign away your firstborn or soforth. I've probably been flagged for merely visiting it from an American IP address.

Here's a great source for international domain name registrars, for reference.

Seems possible, but finding registrars not so easy.
CubaWeb seem to offer what you're looking for.
This is the search I used to find them.

Well, if twine just wants a domain name registrar (and already has hosting elsewhere), there shouldn't exist a need for more than the domain itself. You can set the nameservers to whichever sites you want. I'm not 100% certain, but I think there's no difference to the Web host whether your domain name is .com, .cx, or .cu, so long as they have their DNS configured properly.

Sólo podrán registrar un nombre de dominio de segundo nivel bajo ".cu" organizaciones con domicilio en el territorio de la República de Cuba.

Meaning, you can only register a .cu if your organization is based in Cuba.
