Spain ceded Guam to the US in 1898. Captured by the Japanese in 1941, it was retaken by the US three years later. The military installations on the island are some of the most strategically important US bases in the Pacific.

Guam is a presidential democracy. Guam is a self-governing unincorporated territory of the US.
