Saint Christopher-Nevis-Anguilla was a Crown colony (and, later, a Dependent Territory) of the United Kingdom located in the Caribbean Sea. In 1958, it became a province of the West Indies Federation. When the regional federation of British islands collapsed in 1962, Saint Christopher-Nevis-Anguilla became involved in several attempts by movements towards another union in the Caribbean region.
In 1967, the territory of Saint Christopher-Nevis-Anguilla was granted full internal autonomy. In 1971, the island of Anguilla rigorously sought and achieved separation; in 1980, the separation from the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis was formally accepted. The remaining state became the dominion of Saint Kitts and Nevis in 1983, while Anguilla remains a British Overseas Territory.
