Nauru is a small island nation in the South Pacific surrounded by coral reefs and plenty of deep ocean water. It offers sandy beaches, deep sea fishing, scuba diving and unique geology.
Once, one of the world's richest nations per capita, Nauru is now one of the poorest. It became wealthy from exporting phosphate; an inorganic chemical from fossilized guano (sea bird excrement, used as fertilizer). In the mid-1900s they had one of the world's highest per capita incomes; by the millennium, the phosphate had run out, and the Nauruan economy crashed. In 2004 unemployment reached 90%.
