The region Micronesia is composed of many countries and

territories. The Northern Mariana Islands and Guam are both

territories of the USA, whereas no other country or territory there

is. The Federated States of Micronesia, an independent country

composing of 4 small 'states', Chuuk, Kosrae, Yap, and Caroline, is

in Free Association with the USA. This basically means that it has

earned its independence, but greatly relies on the USA to keep the

country in good shape. 2 other countries are in Free Association

with the USA. These are Marshall Islands and Palau.
