Jersey is a Crown dependency, it is not part of the UK, nor is it a colony, but it does owe its allegiance to the British Crown and the UK is responsible for Jersey's defence and international representation. Jersey is not represented in the UK parliament, however, has its own government called the States of Jersey, members of which are elected by the population. St Helier is the Island's capital and the commercial and retail centre of the Island.
