This is the Philippines. It is located in a subduction zone where one tectonic plate goes underneath another plate. Here is a story of how the Philippine islands were formed...
First, there's water and beneath the water, volcanoes were formed where the tectonic plates collide
The underwater volcanoes kept on erupting...
And as the volcanoes continued to erupt, islands and islets were formed above them.
And after forming land, the islands and islets collided with each other as the tectonic plates moved...
...and were reorganized into the archipelago that we know as the Philippine islands...
