About Tuvalu

Tuvalu, formerly known as the Ellice Islands, is a small island country located in the Pacific Ocean, midway between Hawaii and Australia. It comprises nine small coral atolls spread over approximately 1,300 kilometers, making it the fourth smallest country in the world. The total land area is just 26 square kilometers. Funafuti is the country's capital and largest city. The country's population is around 11,000, making it the third-least populous sovereign state in the world. The native Tuvaluans are Polynesian people who share cultural and linguistic ties with Samoa and Tonga. The official languages are Tuvaluan and English. The culture of Tuvalu is rooted in Polynesian traditions, with music, dance, and storytelling integral parts of social life. The economy of Tuvalu is one of the smallest and most isolated in the world, heavily reliant on foreign aid, remittances, and income from the lease of its '.tv' internet domain name. Fishing and subsistence farming are the primary sources of livelihood for most Tuvaluans. Tuvalu is a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary democracy, recognizing the British monarch as the head of state. The country is particularly vulnerable to climate change and rising sea levels, with several of its atolls already experiencing significant coastal erosion.
