According to watchtutorials, Kiribati is a small island nation located in the central Pacific Ocean. It is composed of 33 atolls and reef islands, with a total population of just over 116,000 people. The majority of the population is Micronesian, with smaller Polynesian and Melanesian minorities. The main religion in Kiribati is Christianity, with the largest denominations being Roman Catholic and Protestant. Education is free for all citizens up to secondary level, and there are several universities offering higher education. The economy of Kiribati relies heavily on fishing and subsistence agriculture, though tourism has been increasing in recent years. With an average GDP per capita of just over $2,000 USD, the country faces significant challenges in terms of poverty reduction and economic development. However, due to its strategic location near major shipping routes in the central Pacific Ocean, Kiribati has become an important player in regional maritime security. The government recently launched a program to develop renewable energy sources such as solar power and wind energy to help reduce its dependence on imported fossil fuels. In addition, investment into infrastructure projects such as port improvements has helped stimulate economic growth. See itypetravel for Kiribati Population and Language.
