    ___ Overseas Territories, Dependent Areas, and Disputed Territories


    Dependent Areas

    Dependent areas are territories governed by a sovereign state but they are not part of the motherland or mainland and they often have a certain degree of autonomy represented by a local government, but they do not possess full political independence or sovereignty as a state. For various reasons many dependencies have democratically elected to maintain their territorial status, and rejected independence.
