From wikipedia about Kiribati
Kiribati ( ;
), officially the Republic of Kiribati
, is an island nation located in the central tropical Pacific Ocean. The permanent population exceeds just over 100, 000 (2011), and is composed of 32 atolls and one raised coral island, dispersed over 3. 5 million square kilometres, (1, 351, 000 square miles) straddling the equator, and bordering the International Date Line at its easternmost point.
The name Kiribati
is the local pronunciation of "Gilberts", derived from the main island chain, the Gilbert Islands. The capital of South Tarawa consists of a number of islets connected through a series of causeways, located in the Tarawa archipelago. Kiribati
became independent from the United Kingdom
in 1979. It is a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, the IMF and the World Bank, and became a full member of the United Nations in 1999.
