Staten Island (Isla de los Estados/Island of the States) is part of Argenta's Tierra del Fuego Province (Antarctica and South Atlantic Islands) whose capital city is Ushuaia. The island is located approx 29 km (18 mi) off the archipelago's eastern extremity (Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego), being separated by Le Maire Strait. Staten Island is also close to Isla Navarino (approx 210 km / 130 mi) to the west. The distance to Ushuaia is approx 250 km (155 mi) to the west.

Puerto Parry Naval Station (1978-established) is the island's only settlement located on the northern coast and in a narrow fjord. The Argentine Navy base is manned by a 4-man team (marines on a 45-day rotation) who monitor the shipping traffic and also provide emergency assistance.
