  • A lot of people think the U.

  • S.

  • A.

  • Is just 50 states, but we got a little bit more than that.

  • Besides the federal District of Washington, D.

  • C.

  • Our capital, we also have five inhabited island territories across the Caribbean and Pacific.

  • In addition, we also have 10 uninhabited or temporarily inhabited islands and two disputed ones.

  • But we'll get to that later.

  • In this episode, we're gonna talk about the inhabited territories of the United States.

  • What is a territory?

  • A.

  • Territory is not a state, but it still falls under the overarching sovereignty of the United States.

  • All these territories kind of have their own level of self home rule.

  • But the U.

  • S government and the military and a lot of their social service is still apply to these places, and they're divided kind of weirdly like There's Commonwealth.

  • There's organized, unorganized incorporated on incorporated territories.

  • We'll get to that in a bit.

  • In the meantime, let's start off American Samoa capital.

  • Paco Paco.

  • It is located in the region of Polynesia.

  • This territory is made up of five main Island's largest ones being Catalina and Manu.

  • Uh, they have two official languages, obviously English and Samoa in.

  • And it is an unincorporated, unorganized territory.

  • Out of all the territories is probably the weirdest one because the people here are not born as citizens, but rather USA Nationals, which basically means they're almost like citizens.

  • They can pretty much move about to the U.

  • S.

  • And anywhere they want for an indefinite period of time.

  • And if they want citizenship, they can get it after like three months.

  • It's really not hard for these people to become citizens.

  • They have a representative del look it in the House of Representatives, but they cannot vote on presidential elections.

  • Basically, this territory kind of fell under the U.

  • S.

  • At the end of the 19th century.

  • Essentially, Germany took over the west part and the US took over the east part and in 1966 the U.

  • N.

  • Actually kind of throughout the option if they wanted to join the independent state of Samoa.

  • But surprisingly, they actually said no and they prefer to stick with the U.

  • S.

  • That's kind of how this territory is stuck with the US instead of joining Samoa, and it's really weird because they sit on the international date line.

  • So Western Samoa is an entire day ahead of American Samoa, even though they're only like less than 100 miles away.

  • Fun fact.

  • The law off Aiga applies to Samoa, which means that nobody who has less than half Samoan blood can own land in this area.

  • They have a lot of self rule autonomy.

  • They even have their own legislative community, called the Formal.

  • They can make their own laws, but large scale policies have to be approved by the U.

  • S.

  • A.

  • There the cousins of the independent state of Samoa, Basically and fun fact Simone's are kind of like a strong, powerful weapon of Americans.

  • We love using them in like athletics.

  • According to Forbes, a Samoan male is about 56 times more likely to be drafted in the NFL than non Samoan players.

  • They're known for just being very big, strong people.

  • I mean, come on, Dwayne.

  • The Rock Johnson is half Samoan.

  • Its strength is just in their blood.

  • A lot of them joined the military.

  • These guys are like the Pacific Island or Spartan Polynesians of the U.

  • S.

  • A.

  • And we love him.

  • Love you.

  • Samoa, Guam Capital, Hagatna.

  • This is located in the Pacific region off Micronesia.

  • These people are micronesians and it is an unincorporated organized territory.

  • So that means the people here do have citizenship.

  • It's basically one big island with a few small rocky islets divided into 19 municipal villages.

  • There are multiple U.

  • S military bases on the island.

  • The motto is it's the place where America's Day begins due to the fact that it is in the 10 plus UTC zone.

  • So it's technically the earliest time zone area of U.

  • S territory.

  • They do have a delegate to the House of Representatives and they can vote on committee meetings, but not floor votes.

  • They can vote for U.

  • S presidential elections, but they don't really have a seat in the Electoral College, so it doesn't really matter, kind of, but anyway, yeah, they have a strong Micronesian culture and heritage language of Guam and the Mariana Islands is tomorrow.

  • It's actually really diverse.

  • There's a lot of Asians here is well, it's Ah, strong military presence island with Micronesian culture and heritage The Northern Mariana Islands, the capital being SaiPan.

  • It is an unincorporated, organized commonwealth of the US, basically the cousins to Guam again.

  • It is located in the Pacific region off Micronesia.

  • These people are micronesians.

  • It is the most recent territory to join back.

  • In 1986 1975 they were given the option for independence, but they decided to stick with the U.

  • S.

  • And then in the eighties, they decided to be fully integrated.

  • You know, back when all that whole free association state thing was happening with Palau in Micronesia, Marshall Islands the eighties was a weird time for territories and a lot of yap.

  • And then this happened.

  • Basically, there are 14 island's divided into 15 municipalities.

  • It is a tri lingual territory, with English tomorrow and Carolinian being the three main languages.

  • And funny thing is, they actually kind of wanted to join Guam like four times as one unified territory.

  • I mean, they are on the same archipelago.

  • They're basically the cousins.

  • They're like the same people.

  • But Guam was kind of like a You do your own thing.

  • I'll do my own thing anyway.

  • Funny thing is, there's actually more Filipinos here than there are Micronesians.

  • Southern islands are limestone and the northern islands or volcanic, just like all the other territories.

  • They have a delegate to the House of Representatives, but they cannot vote on the floor of a really cool place.

  • I kind of want to go there so interesting.

  • That's part of my country.

  • Puertorico.

  • Pretty sure you all have heard of this one.

  • Capital San Juan.

  • This is the largest and most populous of all the territories, with over 3.3 million people.

  • They come in all different shapes and colors.

  • You got the white Puerto Ricans black Porter Aitken's misty So Puerto Ricans.

  • I mean, we all know that music video Esposito.

  • That was basically a clear depiction of how the populist looks like there's a thing.

  • Puerto Rico is pretty much in every logical sense, its own country.

  • But it still falls under U.

  • S.

  • Territory status.

  • You ask any Puerto Rican, though the vast majority that will say they identify as being Puerto Rican first and maybe with like a little American touch flavor spice added into the mix.

  • Puerto Ricans air like the unicorn of the Latin world.

  • Like when Latinos meet Puerto Ricans.

  • They're like your Puerto Rican.

  • Who then can I buy?

  • You will drank, Say something important Quand the Puerto Rican is like I've been Ditto Oh my God, You thought that a cure to make I mean, let's be for real.

  • I mean, I know it's kind of like a generalization, but come on, we all kind of know Puerto Ricans a kind of sexy It's like, Come on, you know, they talk a lot about, like, independents and stuff like that.

  • But it's like, Come on, you guys are like the coolest Latinos ever.

  • We like giving you citizenship with us one day.

  • I should just do a whole video on Puerto Rico cause it's just so complex for now.

  • Located in the Caribbean.

  • It is an unincorporated organized territory, So the people here are citizens as well.

  • Basically, we bought these islands from Denmark back in 1917.

  • This was like the last thing the Danes had in the Caribbean, and we kind of just took it from them.

  • Sorry, Denmark, but you still see some leftover residue of Danish culture and influence, like some of the people still have, like Danish last names.

  • And some of the street signs are still in Danish.

  • They are also non self governing.

  • And the funny thing is, it's also kind of known for being like a tax haven.

  • They act as a customs territory with free ports, and the residents are not subject to federal income taxes, and they basically just pay their taxes to the territory at a similar ratio.

  • About 3/4 of the population are black and the rest are mostly white, with a few Asians and Latinos mixed in.

  • They have their own Creole, especially on the island of ST Wow.

  • It's also like a honeymoon destination.

  • As we mentioned in all the previous episodes, we already did.

  • Palau, Micronesia, Marshall Islands.

  • Both three countries are in free association with the U.

  • S.

  • That's like house incorporated but unorganized.

  • Kingman Reef, Midway Atoll, Vasa Island, Palmyra Atoll and Wake Island.

  • In addition, we have two disputed island territories, Bahama Nuevo and Sarah Nia.

  • Has over 560 recognized Native American Indian tribes.
