You’ll find the Isle of Man in the Irish Sea between Great Britain and Ireland. Like the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man is a self-governed British Crown Dependency. It was part of the Norwegian Kingdom of the Hebrides until the 13th century and then it was ceded to Scotland. The Isle of Man came under the British Crown in 1765. Though not part of the United Kingdom, the British Government is responsible for the Isle of Man’s defence and international affairs.
Douglas is the capital of the Isle of Man, and the official language is English. It’s in a currency union with the UK, with the Manx pound a local issue of pounds sterling in coins and banknotes. There is no official separate currency for the Manx pound, but some call it the Isle of Man pound (IMP).
The economy’s key sectors are in banking, fiduciary services, insurance, e-gaming, manufacturing and tourism. And there’s a series of government incentives to high-tech companies and financial institutions if they chose to locate themselves there. The island mainly trades with the UK and had enjoyed free access to the EU markets because of their close relationship, although this has now been complicated by Brexit.
