Saint Helena (formally Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha) is an overseas territory of the United Kingdom and of the European Union consisting of the islands of Saint Helena, Ascension Island and the Tristan da Cunha group. These islands are in the South Atlantic Ocean about half way between Africa and South America. See the CIA World Factbook

The country was previously known as Saint Helena and Dependencies until 1 September 2009, when a new constitution came into force giving the three islands equal status within the territory.
