Facts About Kiribati

Kiribati is an island nation located in the Pacific Ocean. Straddling the equator, it is made up of 32 atolls and a raised coral island (Banaba). Kiribati is part of the Gilbert Islands chain and became a member of the United Nations in 1999. The islandís capital is Tarawa.

Most of the population live in villages ranging from 50 to 3,000 inhabitants. Houses are often constructed from materials obtained from coconut and pandanus trees, and locals survive primarily by fishing. Other residents are employed by various copra plantations.

Kiribati islands include:

- Banaba - Located between the Gilbert Islands and Nauru.
- Gilbert Islands - Located north of Fiji, the Gilbert Islands are comprised of 16 atolls.
- Phoenix Islands - Located 1,100 miles southeast of the Gilberts, these islands are made up of 8 atolls and coral islands.
- Line Islands - Located 2,050 miles east of the Gilberts, these are comprised of 8 atolls and one reef.

Kiribati has close relations with New Zealand, Japan and Australia, and they provide most of the countryís foreign aid. Japan and Taiwan also have licenses to fish in the waters off of Kiribati.

Since Kiribati has few natural resources, its economy depends mainly on foreign financial aid, tourism and agriculture. Fishing licenses, external grants and seamanís remittances also contribute to the economy of the island nation.

The major religion of Kiribati is Christianity, having been introduced to the islands by missionaries in the 19th century. While some are Congregationalist Protestant, the majority of the island is Roman Catholic. Mormons and Jehovahís Witnesses can also be found scattered throughout the island chain.
