Kiribati

Understand

Originally under British colonial rule as the Gilbert Islands, Kiribati was granted self-rule by the UK in 1971 and complete independence in 1979. The US relinquished all claims to the sparsely inhabited Phoenix and Line Island groups in a 1979 treaty of friendship with Kiribati. The name "Kiribati" is pronounced "Kiri-bass", which is the closest local equivalent to "Gilberts".

The Phoenix and Line Islands, while under Kiribati jurisdiction, are actually on the other side of the International Date Line. However, on 1 January 1995, Kiribati proclaimed that all of its territory lies in the same time zone as the Gilbert Islands (GMT +12).

Some islands, especially the capital Tarawa, saw battles during the Second World War, and shipwreck diving is a common tourist activity.
