Man (Isle of)  
The Isle of Man, a British crown dependency, lies in the Irish Sea almost equidistant from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. With an area of 572 kmē and a population of around 76,315 it arguably has the Oldest Continuous Parliament in the World - the Tynwald - supposedly founded in 979. Although the Manx people celebrated the millennium of Tynwald in 1979, the establishment of Tynwald may have actually pre-dated 979.
