Having emerged from United Nations trusteeship (administered by the United States) in 1994, it is one of the world's youngest and smallest sovereign states. In English, the name is sometimes spelled Belau in accordance with the native pronunciation. It was formerly also spelled Pelew. Its population is around 20,000. Its capital is Melekeok but the largest city is Koror. The official languages are English and Palauan. It is a sovereign nation and member of the United Nations but has an association agreement with the United States.
