Nauru is situated at 0°32' South and 166°55' East near the equator in the Pacific Ocean. The temperatures are moving around 28 deg centigrade through- out the year. The land area totals 21 sqkm with about 10.000 inhabitants living there.
The Englishman John Fearn (called also John Hunter) discovered this island in the year 1798. From 1888 Nauru was a colony of the German emperor, it was occupied by Australia in 1914 and administered by the League of Nations since 1920. Nauru became independent in 1968 and is the smallest island country in the world since then.
Most of the island is covered with guano. The phosphates are mined and there is a big demand for it worldwide. By its phosphates Nauru has one of the biggest per capita incomes in the world. To make sure that its land can be used in another agricultural way later every ship which comes to take phos- phates has to bring fresh topsoil to Nauru. The miners are mostly from other island republics and the Nauru people are living pretty good from their millions of dolars and are one of the biggest investors from the Pacific.
