Life in the Marshall Islands

The Republic of the Marshall Islands is an island country near to the equator in the Pacific Ocean.  As an associated state of the United States, one could assume that it enjoys many of the comforts that mainland United States have.  While the USA does provide defense, subsidies, and access to U.S.-based agencies such as the United States Postal Service, there are few natural resources on the Marshall Islands and therefore its economy is largely based on a service economy (and some US aid).
