South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands is a British Overseas Territory in the southern Atlantic Ocean. There is no native population in this territory, and the only inhabitants are the British Government Office, Deputy Postmaster and scientists that work in the scientific bases at Bird Island and King Edward Point. The British claim to sovereignty of South Georgia dates from 1775, and that of the South Sandwich Islands from 1908. The sovereignty of this territory is disputed with Argentina and it was the cause of the Falklands War between Argentina and Great Britain in the 1980s.
