The Marianas Islands are composed of two U.S. jurisdictions: the territory of Guam (separate locality) and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.
The latter are a commonwealth in political union with the United States located at a strategic location in the western Pacific Ocean. It consists of 15 islands about three-quarters of the way from Hawaii to the Philippines.
The southern islands are limestone with level terraces and fringing coral reefs; the northern islands are volcanic, with active volcanoes on Anatahan, Pagan and Agrihan.
