In the middle of the Irish Sea, the Isle of Man is not recognised as part of the United Kingdom, but rather as a self-governing British Crown Dependency. It has its own government and postal systems peculiar to the island. Although farming and fishing are main industries, tourism is also considered an important industry. The annual TT races bring a lot of income to the island.
