Paloman West Indies (Indias Occidentales Paloman, IOP) is a Paloman territory consisting of multiple counties across multiple islands in the Caribbean. It was formed and annexed from former Ikonian possessions and the unincorporated territory of Yauco. The territory shares a border with multiple Caribbean nations and territories, these include: Cuba, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.

Paloman West Indians have been Paloman citizens since 2023, and are permitted to move between mainland Paloma and the territory. However, as residents of the unincorporated territory, Paloman citizens of the Paloman West Indies are disenfranchised at the national level, do not vote for in elections and do not pay federal taxes. The Paloman West Indies capital is Yauco.


The name "Paloman West Indies" or "Indias Occidentales Paloman" in Spanish, was adopted due to the territory being on the land of parts of the former Spanish West Indies. It is called the "West Indies" because upon the arrival of Christopher Columbus in America he had first thought he had reached the subcontinent of India, hence the name West Indies
