Islas Marianas aka Islas de los Ladrones: a Micronesian group of Islands halfway between Okinawa, Phillippines n Papua/New Guinea , close to the Palau Islands n the Carolines Islands, that were Spanish since 1500 till 1900 (aprox), till Spain musted to "paid" with the Islands' soberanity to USA & Germany (as well as with Cuba, Puerto Rico, Phillipines, Carolines Islands, Palau Islands, etc) after the USA invasión of Cuba & Phillippines n the USA vs Spain War. Between the 1°WW & the 2° WW Japan invaded all the islands, n since the end of 2° WW are an Unincorporated Territory of USA (Guam) n a Free Nation Asociated with USA (Marianas del Norte).
Marianas del Norte are the Northern Islands, n Guam the Southern Island. English ,Chamorro n Carolino (last two are the "natives" tongues: both are a two diferent mixtures of Malayan, Micronesian n a lot of Spanish, both speaked with the Spanish phonetique) are the oficial n mayority languages, n Spanish n Tagalo are minority languages.
I only have knowed people from Guam (not from Marianas Norte) living here: they said me they (in Guam) have a good level of live.Guam people are more related n friendly with USA than people from Marianas Norte (who are more inna the Puerto Rico "way"), they told me...
But Im afraid I dont know anything about their laws...
If samebody from Marianas (or that have been living there) are here in Icmag, sure they can correct me if Im wrong, and/or give you more n better information, cos I only repeat what I have heard.
