Geography and demographics
The Republic of Nauru is an island country located in Micronesia in the Central Pacific. It lies 40 kilometers south of the equator and its capital is Yaren. With an area of 21 km2 and a population of 10,000, Nauru is the smallest country in the Pacific Ocean. Nauru has two official languages: English and Nauruan.
Nauru is one of the world’s smallest democratic states. It is a republic, and its parliament is elected every three years by popular vote.
Nauru’s major economic activity is phosphate mining, however in recent years this has declined. It also grows a number of varieties of tropical fruit. Its currency is the Australian Dollar (AUD).
Nauru’s coral reef makes it an ideal location for tourism. While it does not receive many international visitors, its diverse marine means Nauru is a perfect country to visit for SCUBA diving, fishing and snorkeling.
