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.

DiabolicalMastermind. Michael Bay's ''13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi'' 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.]]

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. [[TheKnightsHospitallers The Knights of St. John]] were resettled here after their original base of Rhodes was over-run by the Ottoman Turks.
