Republic of Palau

This small country in the western Pacific consists of a chain of islands that have a total land area of about 500 square kilometres.
The islands belonged to Germany until the First World War. In 1918 they were handed over to Japan. After the Second World War they became part of a UN Trust Territory and were administered by the USA.
The group of islands was proclaimed an autonomous republic in 1991, and finally in 1994, an independent country. It became the 185th member of the United Nations the same year.
Most of the people live in Koror, the capital. The rest of the people live in villages. Fishing and farming are the main occupations and tourism is a major industry.
