The Florida Keys are located in Monroe County, Florida. They are in the 18th Congressional District.

Within the Keys, there are several incorporated municipalities. The rest is unincorporated Monroe County, including the largest islands of Key Largo and Big Pine Key and most of the Lower Keys.

Islandia was an incorporated developers dream. That is, a municipality was incorporated at the very tip of the Keys, on the edge of Biscayne Bay, but nothing was ever developed. It's unclear if Islandia's charter has lapsed. Some maps, atlases, weather reports, guides, GPS systems and other references based on official databases still list Islandia. It has however, actually vanished beneath the bay.
