Description Officially known as the "Independent State of Samoa" since July 4, 1997, concurrently casting off "Western Samoa," the name given to it when it was a German protectorate until 1914. Subsequently administered by New Zealand until 1962, the islands became the first Polynesian nation to reestablish independence in the 20th century.

Samoa is six-island territory with eleven administrative divisions.
