Kiribati, officially the Independent and Sovereign Republic of Kiribati, is an island nation in the central tropical Pacific Ocean. The permanent population is just over 100,000 (2011) on 800 square kilometres (310 sq mi). The nation is composed of 32 atolls and one raised coral island, Banaba, 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, which derives from the main island chain, named the Gilbert Islands after the British explorer Thomas Gilbert, who sailed through the islands in 1788. The capital, 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.

Kiribati was named in French by captains Krusenstern and Louis Isidore Duperrey îles Gilbert, Gilbert Islands, after the British Captain Thomas Gilbert, who sighted the islands in 1788. The current name, Kiribati, is an adaptation of Gilberts, from the former European name the Gilbert Islands. Although the indigenous name for the Gilbert Islands proper is Tungaru in Gilbertese language, the new state chose the name Kiribati, the Gilbertese rendition of Gilberts, as an equivalent of the former colony to acknowledge the inclusion of islands never considered part of the Gilberts chain.

The area now called Kiribati has been inhabited by Micronesians speaking the same Oceanic language since sometime between 3000 BC and AD 1300. The area was not isolated; invaders from Tonga and Samoa, and from Fiji, later introduced Polynesian and Melanesian cultural aspects, respectively. Intermarriage tended to blur cultural differences and resulted in a significant degree of cultural homogenisation.

Contact with Europeans began in the 16th century when Magellan, Saavedra and Quirós discovered and conquered the islands of Pope Clement VIII in 1520, the islands of the Queen Catalina in 1528 and the Island (La) Carolina in 1606 (Spanish rule lasted from 1528-1885), at that time the islands of Santa Catalina, were named in honor of queen Catherine of Aragon.[citation needed] Whalers, slave traders and merchant ships arrived in large numbers during the 19th century, and the resulting agitation fomented internal conflicts between tribes and introduced European epidemics.

The main island chain was named the Gilbert Islands in 1820 by a Russian admiral, Adam von Krusenstern, and French captain Louis Duperrey, after a British captain named Thomas Gilbert, who crossed the archipelago in 1788 when sailing from Australia to China.

From the early 19th century, Western whalers, merchant vessels and slave traders visited the islands, introducing diseases and firearms. The first British settlers arrived in 1837. In 1892 the Gilbert Islands consented to become a British protectorate together with the nearby Ellice Islands. They were administered by the Western Pacific High Commission based in Fiji. Together they became the crown colony of the Gilbert and Ellice Islands in 1916. Christmas Island (or Kiritimati) became part of the colony in 1919 and the Phoenix Islands were added in 1937. Sir Arthur Grimble was a cadet administrative officer based at Tarawa (1913--1919) and became Resident Commissioner of the Gilbert and Ellice Islands colony in 1926.

Tarawa Atoll and others of the Gilbert group were occupied by Japan during World War II. Tarawa was the site of one of the bloodiest battles in US Marine Corps history. Marines landed in November 1943; the Battle of Tarawa was fought at Kiribati's former capital Betio on Tarawa Atoll.

Some of the islands of Kiribati, especially in the remote Line Islands, were formerly used by the United States and United Kingdom for nuclear weapons testing including hydrogen bombs in the late 1950s and early 1960s.

Places that Nobody Wants to Visit

Get more Tips here!

There are lots of places in the world that we are eager to see. Longing for the holiday season to prepare our trip. However, there are some places that nobody wants to visit at all. Let's see them!

1) Democratic Republic of São Tomé and Príncipe, Africa
This is actually a remarkable country for those who love beaches. It's full of them and has the interesting Obo National Park, even though it's the second smallest country in Africa. But nobody comes here because of the lack of airports and connections. It's just not easy to get there. What a shame!

2) Turkmenistan
This was an important stop on the Silk Road in the 15th century. It owns one of the driest deserts in the world, the Karakum Desert. According to Human Rights Watch, it remains one of the world’s most repressive countries. But, it still has some amazing things such as the Darvaza gas crater, that is a natural gas field set on fire by geologists in 1971 to prevent the spread of methane gas and has been burning ever since.

3) Equatorial Guinea
Only US citizens can travel here without a visa, everybody else has to fill out a whole lot of paperwork. Yes, it has beautiful coasts, but doesn't have great attractions and has one of the worst governments in the world. It just doesn't appeal to most people.

4) Marshall Islands
This country is a collection of atolls and islands near the equator in the Pacific Ocean. This place is like a perfect paradise full of amazing landscapes and beaches. So why's it on our list? There's only one airline operating here, and it's extremely expensive. So... that's why.

5) Republic of Kiribati
This is a sovereign state in the central Pacific Ocean. It is the only country that is situated within all four hemispheres. Kiritimati is the world's largest atoll, and it's the first place on Earth to enter into the new year. Everything here is peaceful, calm and paradisaical. But don't wait to much, a rise of sea level due to global warming will be inevitable.

6) Tuvalu
Formerly known as the Ellice Islands, between Hawaii and Australia, they comprise of three reef islands and six true atolls. But, the only way to get there is by sail boat. Also, they have high risks of tropical cyclones and the ever rising sea level threatens to wash them away.

7) Federal Republic of Somalia
This place is like a compilation of no-nos, starting by its political situation, and some other severe problems. So, we don't encourage you to go, only unless you want to buy a fake university title on the black market. If not, stay away!

8) Republic of Nauru
It is the smallest state in the South Pacific. It only has two hotels and one airline to take you there, and that's the good part of this place. There's really nothing at all to visit here. It's actually a phosphate-rock island with no attractions to visit anywhere. So that's why it's on our list...

9) Izu Islands
The Izu Islands are a group of volcanic islands in Japan. Because of their volcanic nature, the islands are constantly filled with the stench of sulfur. Tourism returned in 2005 but now you need to bring gas masks in case gas levels rise unexpectedly. So, that doesn't seem too fun.

10) The Zone of Alienation
We all remember that terrible event that happened in the Eastern Europe where a nuclear reactor disaster caused the isolation of a 2.5 thousand square kilometer area. However, a few hundred samosely people still live there and visitors started coming back since 2009. It doesn't seem the best place for a visit, right?... It's just common sense...
