  • Die Isle of Man (früher auch Isle of Mann; deutsch Insel Man, manx Ellan Vannin) ist eine Insel in der Irischen See. Sie ist als autonomer Kronbesitz (englisch crown dependency) direkt der britischen Krone unterstellt, jedoch weder Teil des Vereinigten Königreichs noch eine Kronkolonie. Sie stellt ein gesondertes Rechtssubjekt dar und ist nicht Teil der Europäischen Union. Die Isle of Man ist bekannt als Steueroase und Sitz von Offshoreunternehmen sowie für das Motorradrennen Tourist Trophy. Die Isle of Man ist eine der Britischen Inseln und liegt in der Irischen See zwischen Schottland (29 km entfernt), England (48 km), Nordirland (52 km), Wales (71 km) und der Republik Irland (85 km). Durch ihre Lage hat sie ein feuchtes, gemäßigtes Klima mit milden Wintern und kühlen Sommern, damit ist sie schneeärmer als Helgoland. The Isle of Man otherwise known simply as Mann (Manx: Mannin, is a self-governing British Crown Dependency, located in the Irish Sea between the islands of Great Britain and Ireland. The head of state is Queen Elizabeth II, who holds the title of Lord of Mann. The Lord of Mann is represented by a Lieutenant Governor, but its foreign relations and defence are the responsibility of the British Government. The Isle of Man is located in the middle of the northern Irish Sea, almost equidistant from the islands of Great Britain and Ireland. The closest land is southern Scotland. It is 52 kilometres (32 mi) long and, at its widest point, 22 kilometres (14 mi) wide. It has an area of around 572 square kilometres (221 sq mi). Besides the island of Mann itself, the political unit of the Isle of Man includes some nearby small islands: the seasonally inhabited Calf of Man, Chicken Rock on which stands an unmanned lighthouse, St Patrick's Isle and St Michael's Isle. Both of the latter are connected to the mainland by permanent roads/causeways.
