Geografi: Østat og republik i Mikronesien i Stillehavet. Nuværende navn Belau. Også af englænderne kaldet Pelew eller Palos øerne - som spanierne benævnte dem, efter deres palmer. På katalansk betyder Palau: palads.
'The Republic of Palau became an Independent Nation on October 1, 1994 with the implementation of the Compact of Free Association between Palau and the United States of America. Palau stretches from about 2 to 8 degrees north latitude and 131 to 135 degrees east longitude. Palau covers 189 square miles of land area including the rock islands. The surrounding sea area includes an exclusive economic zone extending over 237,850 square miles. The capital of Palau was relocated to Ngerulmud, Melekeok in 2006. Koror remain the economic center for Palau, with a land area of 7.1 square miles where two thirds of the population resides. Koror lies just south of Micronesia’s second largest island, Babeldaob which contains 153 square miles of undulating forests, grasslands, rivers, waterfalls, wetlands, mangroves and some of the most beautiful stretches of beaches.
Palau consists of more than 340 islands, with only eight being inhabited. These are, from Northeast to Southwest: Kayangel, Babeldaob, Koror, Peleliu, Angaur, Sonsorol, Pulo Anna, Hatohobei and Helen Reef. Most of the islands are of volcanic origin, and others are of raised limestone. Babeldaob is the largest island, making up eighty percent of the total land area. Babeldaob Island consists of ten states, namely Airai, Aimeliik, Ngeremlengui, Ngerchelong, Ngchesar, Melekeok, Ngiwal, Ngaraard, Ngardmau and Ngatpang States.'

Befolkningen i Palau vedtog i 1979 verdens første grundlov som forbyder kernevåben og andre masseødelæggelsesvåben.
Ifølge grundlovens artikel XIII, sektion 6, kan, “Skadelige stoffer som atomare, kemiske, gas- eller biologiske våben til brug for krig, atomkraftværker og -affald … ikke bruges, testes, oplagres eller henlægges inden for Palaus retslige område, uden at tre fjerdedele af de afgivne stemmer udtrykkeligt har godkendt det i en folke­afstemning om dette særlige spørgsmål”.
Forfatningen mødte stor modstand i USA's administration.
