Malta, officially the Maltese Monarchist Shugarhai Principality (Maltese: Malti Monarchista Prinċipalità Shugarhaiku), shortly known as Maltese MSK (Maltese: Malti MPS) or less known as Maltese Principality or Principality of Malta, is a special Monarchist Shugarhai state and an island country comprising an archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea.
Malta's location has historically given it great strategic importance as a naval base, and a succession of powers, including the Phoenicians, Romans, Moors, Normans, Sicilians, Spanish, Knights of St. John, French, British and Swedish, have ruled the islands.
