FRENCH POLYNESIA

French Polynesia is a collection of over 100 islands halfway between California and Australia in the South Pacific Ocean. It is an overseas country governed by France.

Tahiti and its islands cover 4 million km² of ocean, which is the same area as the European Union. The land above sea level accounts for some 7,000 km² consisting of 118 islands, grouped into 5 archipelagos (4 volcanic, 1 coral).

The French government administers education, justice, defense and internal security, while a local parliament takes care of other day-to-day affairs.

Makatea in French Polynesia is one of the three great phosphate rock islands in the Pacific Ocean, the others are Banaba (Ocean Island) in Kiribati and Nauru.
