Bermuda is a British Overseas Territory in the North Atlantic Ocean. It is about 1,035 km (643 mi) east-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina (with Cape Point on Hatteras Island being the nearest landfall); 1,236 km (768 mi) south of Cape Sable Island, Nova Scotia; 1,759 km (1,093 mi) northeast of Cuba, and 1,538 km (956 mi) due north of the British Virgin Islands.

Bermuda consists of over 170 islands and is divided into nine parishes. Its climate is subtropical, primarily due to its chilly but mild winter temperatures. Unlike other designated subtropical areas, summers are also mild, with temperatures generally not rising above 30 °C (86 °F) in the hottest months of July and August.
Bermuda’s capital city is Hamilton. Bermuda is internally self-governing, it is the most populous of the British overseas territories. It had one of the world’s highest GDP per capita for most of the 20th century.
