NATIONS AND THEIR RULERS

MALTA

Size: 122 sq. mi. (316 sq. km.).

Population: 325,000.

This densely populated Mediterranean isle south of Sicily was known as "the unsinkable aircraft carrier" during W.W.II. For their ability to stand up under 2,000 intensive German and Italian air raids without surrendering, the Maltese people were collectively awarded Britain's George Cross for heroism--the first people so honored. The official state religion is Roman Catholicism, but a constitutional amendment ratified in December, 1974, limits the Church's role to moral guidance and forbids the Church to preach on political matters.
