About Papua New Guinea


Papua New Guinea is an Oceanian country comprised of the eastern half of the island of New Guinea and its Melanesia-based offshore islands (a region of the southwestern Pacific Ocean north of Australia). Port Moresby, the country's capital, is located on the country's southeastern coast. It is the world's third largest island country, covering 462,840 square kilometres (178,700 sq mi).
At the national level, Papua New Guinea established sovereignty in 1975 after being ruled by three external powers since 1884. This followed nearly 60 years of Australian administration dating all the way back to the outbreak of World War I. In 1975, it became an independent Commonwealth realm, with Elizabeth II as monarch. It also became an independent member of the Commonwealth of Nations.


Papua New Guinea is one of the world's most culturally diverse nations. As of 2019, it is also the most rural country in the world, with only 13.25 percent of its population residing in urban areas. There are 851 recognized languages in the country, 11 of which have no known speakers at the moment. The majority of the over 8,000,000-strong population lives in customary communities that are as diverse as the languages. The country is one of the least explored on a cultural and geographical level in the world. It is known to have numerous uncontacted peoples, and researchers believe the interior contains numerous undiscovered plant and animal species.


The International Monetary Fund classifies the sovereign state as a developing economy. Almost 40% of the population lives in self-sustaining natural communities without access to global capital. The majority of people live in strong traditional social groups centered on agriculture. Their social lives incorporate elements of traditional religion as well as modern practices, such as primary education. These societies and clans are expressly recognized in the Papua New Guinea Constitution, which expresses a desire for "traditional villages and communities to continue to exist as viable units of Papua New Guinean society" and safeguards their continued significance to local and national community life. Since 1976, the country has been an observer state in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and has applied for full membership. The Commonwealth of Nations, the Pacific Community, and the Pacific Islands Forum all recognize it as a full member.
