Isle of Man
Full Name : Isle of Man
Area : total: 572 sq km
Government type : parliamentary democracy
Population : 76,512 (July 2009 est.)
Independence : British crown dependency
GDP : $2.719 billion (2005 est.)
GDP by sector : agriculture: 1% - industry: 13% - services: 86% (2000 est.)
 
Background

Part of the Norwegian Kingdom of the Hebrides until the 13th century when it was ceded to Scotland, the isle came under the British crown in 1765. Current concerns include reviving the almost extinct Manx Gaelic language. Isle of Man is a British crown dependency but is not part of the UK. However, the UK Government remains constitutionally responsible for its defense and international representation.

 
Economy - Overview:

Offshore banking, manufacturing, and tourism are key sectors of the economy. The government offers incentives to high-technology companies and financial institutions to locate on the island; this has paid off in expanding employment opportunities in high-income industries. As a result, agriculture and fishing, once the mainstays of the economy, have declined in their contributions to GDP. The Isle of Man also attracts online gambling sites and the film industry. Trade is mostly with the UK. The Isle of Man enjoys free access to EU markets.
