The Republic of Palau, an island country in the western Pacific and bordered by Micronesia to the east, Indonesia to the south, and the Philippines to the north west, currently has no political parties.

In the country, there are no political parties, and until the commencement of the twenty first century, no elections were held. The election of the President and Vice President in the country happens every five years. However only the Federal National Council (FNC), which is the major consultative body in the nation and has both a legislative and supervisory role accorded by the Constitution, participates in the electoral poll, so the public does not have a say.

The Federated States of Micronesia, an island country located in the Oceania continent, is one of the countries in the world that do not have any political parties. The president of the nation is elected for a four-year term by Congress. Political allegiances depend majorly on family and island-related factors.
