The Marshall Islands, a Pacific island nation composed of 29 atolls and 1,156 individual islands, operates as a presidential republic in free association with the United States. Governed by a Compact of Free Association since gaining independence in 1986, the country’s political landscape is characterized by a multi-party system, although political parties play a relatively limited role. The two main political groupings are the Aelon Kein Ad (AKA) and the United Democratic Party (UDP). The Marshall Islands faces significant challenges, including environmental issues related to climate change, rising sea levels, and nuclear legacy concerns from U. S. nuclear tests conducted during the Cold War. The economy relies heavily on U. S. assistance, fishing license fees, and the service sector. Traditional Marshallese culture, with influences from Micronesian and Polynesian traditions, is reflected in customs, oral traditions, and the annual Constitution Day celebrations. As the Marshall Islands addresses the complexities of sustainability, climate resilience, and economic development, it actively participates in international forums advocating for climate action and environmental protection, reflecting its unique position in the Pacific and its commitment to global issues.
