Puerto Rico, sometimes called the world's oldest colony.[1]

A colony is a territory under the immediate political control of a state, distinct from the home territory of the sovereign.


  • The famous dictum which states that all men are equal will find its illustration in the colonies only when the colonized subject states he is equal to the colonist.
