Malta, known as the Republic of Malta ('''Maltese:''' ''Repubblika ta' Malta''), is a small island nation, about 60 miles off the coast of Italy and consisting of the inhabited islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino and a number of uninhabited islands. Malta has historically been of enormous strategic significance. [[UsefulNotes/TheKnightsHospitallers The Knights of St. John]] were resettled here after their original base of Rhodes was over-run by the Ottoman Turks.

The 1980 live-action film version of {{Popeye}} was filmed here; the main set that portrayed [[NotSoSafeHarbor the town of Sweethaven]] still exists [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Popeye_Village as "Popeye Village", a museum and entertainment complex.]] ''Film/FinalJustice'' was also filmed and set here. An episode of ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' was supposedly set here, but bizarrely and insultingly depicted the country as an isolated developing-world rogue state whose government was in the pocket of a millionaire DiabolicalMastermind. Creator/MichaelBay's ''Film/ThirteenHoursTheSecretSoldiersOfBenghazi'' was also filmed here [[CaliforniaDoubling as a stand-in for Benghazi, Libya]] due to the area having a lot of Northern Africa-style architecture [[CaptainObvious and also being a helluva lot safer than filming in Libya.]]

During WorldWarTwo, Malta was a British possession (following wars with France a century earlier) and a very useful air and naval base just off the enemy (Italian) coast. The Italian and German air forces made determined attempts to do something about this, but were held off by a bare minimum of British fighters. The people of Malta were considered to have conducted themselves so bravely during the bombardment that the ''entire nation'' was collectively awarded the George Cross (Britain's highest civilian award for bravery). Which surely qualifies as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for the Maltese people. Britain later considered integrating the island into the UK, but in the end it became an independent republic.
