Getting started with Republic of Kiribati research

The Republic of Kiribati (pronounced Kiribas) is an island nation covering a vast area of the central tropical Pacific Ocean. The islands straddling the equator and border the International Date Line to the east. North of Fiji and southwest of Hawaii.
Kiribati was formerly known as the Gilbert Islands and was named after the British Captain Thomas Gilbert, who sighted the islands in 1788. The name Kiribati is derived from the local pronunciation of "Gilberts".

Kiribati consists of about 32 atolls and one island, Banaba. The groups of islands being:

  • Banaba (or Ocean Island): an isolated volcanic island between Nauru and the Gilbert Islands
  • Gilbert Islands: made up of 16 atolls located some 930 miles (1,500 km) north of Fiji.
  • Line Islands: made up of 8 atolls and one reef, located about 2,050 miles (3,300 km) east of the Gilbert Islands. These include Kirisimati, or Christmas Island, which is the largest coral atoll.
  • Phoenix Islands: made up of 8 atolls and coral islands located some 1,100 miles (1,800 km) south-east of the Gilbert Islands.

The population in 1995 was about 80,000.
