Island country

Sovereign states and states with limited recognition fully on islands (Australia is regarded a continent): those with land borders shaded green, and those without shaded dark blue

An island country is a country whose primary territory consists of one or more islands or parts of islands. As of 2011, 46 (approximately 24%[1]) of the 193 UN member states are island countries.

Politics

The percentage of island countries that are democratic is higher than that of continental countries. Historically they have been less prone to political instability than their continental counterparts.[1]
