About the world country Gibraltar, its location, size, population, and who is in power.
NATIONS OF THE WORLD
Location: A massive rock at the southern tip of Spain, overlooking the entrance into the Mediterranean Sea from the Atlantic Ocean. Size: 2 sq. mi. (6 sq. km.). Population: 29,000.
Who Really Rules: Though claimed by Spain, Gibraltar has been a British colony, home to a British naval base, for nearly 270 years. The U.K. is prepared to cede the rock back to Spain should the local population approve, but the Gibraltarians overwhelmingly oppose association with Spain. The Labour party, led by Chief Minister Sir Joshua Hassan, controls the freely elected House of Assembly.
