Palau-icon.png Palauball

Palauball, officially the Republic of NG DIAK Palau, is an island countryball in the western Pacific Ocean. His clay contains approximately 340 different islands, all within the same island chain as the countryball of Micronesia-icon.png Micronesiaball.

History

Early History

Palau-icon.png Palauball's clay was initially settled over 3,000 years ago, and perhaps as early as 4,500 years ago, by migrants from the Formosan island.

Colonization

UK-icon.png British traders became prominent visitors in the 18th century, followed by expanding Spanish influence in the 19th century. Following his defeat in the Spanish-American War, Spain sold Palau-icon.png Palauball and most of the rest of the Caroline Islands to Germany in 1899. Control passed to Japanese-Empire-icon.png Empire of Japanball in 1914. Many Japanese moved to Palau-icon.png Palauball and there are many Palauans with Japanese ancestry. Japanese-Empire-icon.png Japanball also helped Palauball with economic development. The Palau language has many Japanese loanwords. Their flags are similar too. President Tommy Remengesau said Japan-icon.png Japanball and Palauball are like brothers.

During World War II the islands were taken by the United States in 1944, with the costly Battle of Peleliu between September 15 and November 25 with more than 2,000 Americans and 10,000 Japanese killed. The islands passed formally to the United States under United Nations auspices in 1947 as part of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands.

Independence

Four of the Trust Territory districts formed a single federated Micronesian state in 1979, but the districts of Palau and the Marshall Islands declined to participate. Palau, the westernmost cluster of the Caroline Islands, instead opted for independent status in 1978, approved a new constitution and became the Republic of Palau in 1981, and signed a Compact of Free Association with the United States in 1982. After eight referendums and an amendment to the Palau-icon.png Palauan constitution, the Compact was ratified in 1993 and went into effect on October 1, 1994, marking Palau independent de jure (after Palau was independent de facto since May 25, 1994, when the trusteeship canceled).

Legislation making Palau-icon.png Palauball an "offshore" financial center was passed by the Senate in 1998. In 2001, Palau-icon.png Palauball passed its first bank regulation and anti-money laundering laws. Palau-icon.png Palauball also has been increasing his efforts to become greener, as he is especially vulnerable to rising sea levels. Unfortunately, even though he has begged other countryballs many times, they still often fall upon deaf ears.
