Hear "Bermuda is Another World"
Bermuda is Britain's oldest and smallest but most affluent British Overseas Territory, internally self-governing (except for external affairs and defense). Bermuda is 600 miles due east of the nearest mainland, the USA's North Carolina. Bermuda is not in the Caribbean but 900 miles north of it, with no airlines flying between Bermuda and the Caribbean. Note above and below frequent daily airline services to Bermuda from the USA (it supplies 85% of Bermuda's international business, imports and tourism markets), Canada and Britain (UK). The World Bank - see http://data.worldbank.org/country/bermuda - rates Bermuda as one of the top four jurisdictions in the world in Gross National Income per capita. Bermuda is an important and strategic offshore business jurisdiction and the registered offshore or principal home of thousands of multinational companies and corporations (most are from the USA, Canada, Europe, Russia, Hong Kong and rest of Asia) in aviation, computers, investment, insurance and reinsurance, pharmaceuticals, oil, property (real estate), shipping, software, unit trust and other companies. They include Amazon, Apple, Google, Microsoft. Their main business operations including management, corporate control and head offices are located beyond Bermuda. Our cost of living is the highest in the world. Bermuda (not the UK), creates its laws including those on citizenship, commerce, customs duties, employment, finance, health, insurance, investments, hospitalization, immigration, taxation, trade, welfare, etc. UK visitors to Bermuda are welcome as all other nationalities but like the others are also subject to immigration and work permit laws if employed locally, have no free UK NHS-style medical services or residential or voting rights and are restricted in real estate purchase to the top 5% of single family homes or condominiums in assessed or market value.
Size and resident population. Bermuda is 21 square mile (56 kilometers) in total land area, a cluster of small islands (6 main islands and 120 others) in the north west Atlantic Ocean. It is one of the nine smallest places in the world in total land area, compared to the USA's 9.629 million square kilometers. The main islands are connected by bridges. With nine parishes (counties or districts), each 2.3055 square miles (3.68 square kilometers, Bermuda has about 65,000 residents and 550,000 visitors yearly, mostly from cruise ships that visit one of Bermuda's three cruise ship ports.
