Nevis and the neighbouring island of Saint Kitts constitute one country: the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis. Also known as the Federation of Saint Christopher and Nevis, the country is a Commonwealth realm, with Elizabeth II as queen and head of state.

The smaller island of Nevis lies approximately 3km (2mi) southeast of Saint Kitts across a shallow channel called "The Narrows".
