Recent history of Marshall Islands
Marshall Islands was occupied by Japan until WWII when the US attacked and took over the Islands. They built military bases and sent a lot of troops there and by the time the Marshall Islands became an independent country in 1979, it became questionable that what would happen to the US bases in the country in case they live which was solved when Marshall Islands’s brand new government was like, “You know what? why don’t you guys stay here and control your bases?” and the US was like, “If you insist so! I’ll pay you then!” and that was the deal!
Now more than %60 of the country’s GDP comes from the US.
