About Papua new guinea

Papua New Guinea, officially the Independent State of Papua New Guinea, is a fascinating country located in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. This country covers the eastern half of the second largest island in the world, New Guinea, with the western half being part of Indonesia. In addition to the main island, Papua New Guinea includes over 600 smaller islands. With a population of approximately 9 million as of 2023, it boasts a rich cultural heritage with over 850 indigenous languages spoken, suggesting immense ethnic diversity. The landscape of the country is extraordinarily varied and includes dense rainforests, mountain ranges, fertile coastal plains, and river valleys. The biodiversity is among the world's richest - with many species of animals and plants yet to be discovered. The country's economy is dominated by two sectors: agriculture, forestry, and fishing on one hand, and minerals and energy extraction on the other. Despite being rich in resources, much of the population still live traditional lifestyles. The modern culture is a vibrant fusion of old and new, with ancient tribal traditions existing alongside elements of western society. The capital and largest city, Port Moresby, is the main gateway to the country and hosts a variety of cultural institutions.
