The Republic of Nauru, formerly known as Pleasant Island, is an island republic in the South Pacific Ocean. It is the worlds smallest independent republic both in terms of population and land area. Much of its past prosperity derived from the large amount of phosphate deposits on the island, believed by one school of thought to be of guano origin but by another to be of marine origin. Nauru currently houses a detention centre, which holds and processes asylum seekers as part of Australias Pacific Solution.
