Republic of the Philippines

Republic of the Philippines is made up of a state and an archipelago of 7107 islands in the western Pacific. In total, 101 million people populate the fifth largest isolation state in the world. The country has been named "Philippines" by its explorer Ruy López de Villalobos, who named the islands in honor of then Prince Filippo, "Las Islas Filipinas". The Spaniards have claimed the Philippines as their colony already in the 15th century. After the British invasion in the 17th century it was still to be expected until the nineties of the 18th century, until the Republic of the Philippines was proclaimed. Since it has not been recognized by the United States, other war conflicts have arisen. Starting in 1916, the Philippines can be considered as a partially autonomous country, a system which was maintained until the end of II World War. Despite, the South – not totally colonized - it is predominantly Muslim, so far Christians make up the only majority in the Asian population. Religious conflicts, especially in the south, often have armed clashes. Filipino is the national and official language in the Philippines, along with the English language.

The postal system in the Philippines

The Philippine postal system has a long history. Already in 1767 under the rule of the Spanish crown in Manila was founded the first post office. Today is Philippine Postal Corporation, a short-term PHLPost (in Filipino: "Korporasyong Koreo ng Pilipinas"), to manage the postal system. In the postal system, more than 8,000 workers are employed, divided into approximately 1350 post offices.

Four digits: Philippine CAP

In the Philippines, the use of postal codes is not mandatory, even if desired by the postal service, to ensure that a shipment reaches the destination safely and easily. Basically a Filipino ZIP code  is composed of four digits, where the first two positions refer to the respective province, while the last two digits indicate fractions or districts. The administrative division into the Philippines is organized in a special way: the 18 archipelagos of the country are 18 regions, which in turn are divided into 81 provinces (so-called Lalawigan). The province and primary political unity, as governed by an elected governor. Inside the provinces are the cities respectively municipalities administered autonomously, which are divided into so-called Barangays (districts or districts). In rural areas, there are the Puroks, areas presided over by superintendents.
14 of these 18 regions have a number based on their location, from north to south. This subdivision also includes postal codes for the Philippines. Starting from north to south, the first two digits are assigned to the provinces. Metro Manila, the metropolitan region around the capital Manila, uses, for example, postal codes from 04xx to 17xx.
