Federated States of Micronesia is a sovereign, independent
nation in free association with the United States of
America. The Compact of Free Association is the international
agreement which enshrines this special relationship.
Upon termination of the US Trust Territory in 1979,
the Federated States of Micronesia became independent.
In 1986, the First Compact of Free Association was signed
between the US and the FSM. In 2004, the Compact was
amended for another 20 years.
