South Georgia

Summary

The British Overseas Territories (BOT’s) are a remnant of the once world-dominant British Empire. Some have no permanent inhabitants, while others are almost completely self-sustaining. Most BOT residents are British citizens, although each island has its own unique constitution and legal relationship to the UK. The UK is responsible for defense and foreign relations for all of the BOT’s.1 These territories include, but are not limited to: Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Gibraltar, St. Helena, South Georgia, Pitcairn Islands, Turks and Caicos Islands, Montserrat, and the British Indian Ocean Territory. South Georgia is located off the southern tip of South America. It is largely barren, covered in a rugged terrain of snow, glaciers, mountains. There are no indigenous inhabitants; the island has been used on and off by the British government as a military base and science station.1 1https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/resources/the-world-factbook/geos/print_sx.html
