Nauru is a little island nation, a spot in the Pacific Ocean, with a region of just 21-square-kilometers. It is the little state in the South Pacific and third little state by region on the planet. Nauru was initially possessed by Micronesian and Polynesian individuals for no less than 3,000 years, who stayed disconnected from western contact with the exception of the incidental runaway or got away convict, until the  late nineteenth century when it was Colonized by the German Empire.

The Europeans soon found phosphate mines and this little island turned into a strip mine, misused by outside Foreign powers. After it gained its autonomy in 1968, mining heightened until the point when the vast majority of the phosphate had been stripped and the island's economy went south. During the time spent on mining phosphate to treat fields in faraway nations, the nation had rendered its own particular scene barren. Today, the island is a desolate no man's land with spiked limestone zeniths that cover 80% of the island.
