Officially named the Independent State of Papua New Guinea, is a country in Oceania. It occupies the eastern half of the island of New Guinea (the western portion of the island is a part of the Indonesian provinces of Papua and West Papua) and numerous offshore islands. It is located in the southwestern Pacific Ocean, in a region described since the early 19th century as Melanesia. The capital of the country is Port Moresby.
Papua New Guinea is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world. According to recent data, 848 different languages are listed for the country. The population is about 6.3 million.
The country is one of the world’s least explored, culturally and geographically.
PNG became the sixth fastest-growing economy in the world as of 2011, despite this many people live in extreme poverty.
The majority of the population still live in traditional societies and practice subsistence-based agriculture.
After being ruled by three external powers since 1884, Papua New Guinea established its sovereignty in 1975 after Australia ceased to administer it. It became a separate Commonwealth realm with Queen Elizabeth II reigning as its Head of State.
