Falkland Islands are a British overseas territory in the South Atlantic Ocean, to the east of the region of Patagonia in the south of South America. Falklands are a self-governing territory, a parliamentary dependency under the British Crown. Head of state is Queen Elizabeth II, represented here by the governor. Local currency is the Falklands pound, backed by the pound sterling. Official language is English. The Falklands are the part of the European Union.
