Anguilla the Snake   by Ryan Fyfe

Anguilla, also known as Snake Island, is one of the most northerly of all the Leeward Islands in the Lesser Antilles. An internally self-governing British overseas territory, Anguilla's military defence is the responsibility of the United Kingdom.
Anguilla was first colonized by English settlers in 1650, and was incorporated into British dependency along with the neighbouring islands of Saint Kitts and Nevis in the early 19th century. This incorporation didn't pass without much objection of the Anguillan peoples. In 1980 Anguilla formally withdrew from the territory, and thus becoming a separate British dependency, which it remains today.

As a British overseas territory Anguilla, the British government is represented in the territory by a formally appointed Governor. The head of government is a local elected Chief Minister.

Industry on the island is small due to it's size. The two major industries are tourism and fishing, offshore banking becoming an increasing role in the economy. The majority of Anguillans are Protestant and are of African descent.
