A colony is a territory with limited or no autonomy and subject to a sovereign state but not considered part of the home territory of that country. A colony is often characterized by immigration from the ruling country. Countries establish colonies for a number of reasons, including political prestige, military advantage, and, most frequently, economic exploitation. Most countries with colonies consider themselves to be empires and many include that distinction in their official names.
