Montserrat is an overseas territory of the United Kingdom.
It was formerly the home of a branch of George Martin's AIR Studios (and other amenities) that made the island popular with working and vacationing musicians and other celebrities.
Montserrat is a full & participating member of the Caribbean Community and Common Market (CARICOM).
Much of this island was devastated and two-thirds of the population fled abroad due to the eruption of the Soufriere Hills volcano that began on July 18, 1995. Volcanic eruptions have continued, making large parts of the island uninhabitable .
Military branches: no regular indigenous military forces; Police Force
Military - note: defence is the responsibility of the UK
