Spread across more than 250 islands of the Micronesian group in the Western pacific, about two thirds of Palau’s population live on the isle of Koro. Maintaining a compact of free association with the US, Palau cooperates on a number of military, security and economic issues, but is a wholly independent multi-party democracy, with a president who is both head of state and head of government. The low age of criminal responsibility, violence and abuse of children and discrimination against vulnerable groups remain issues for Palau.
