Cayman Islands

The Cayman Islands are an overseas territory of the United Kingdom in the West Indies, northwest of Jamaica. Because it has no direct taxation, it is filled with banks. Most Caymanians are biracial (black and white) English speakers.

The Cayman Islands are made up of Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman.
