Vanuatu Introduction

Vanuatu is an island country in the southwest Pacific Ocean. Vanuatu consists of 80 islands with a total land area of about 12,200 square kilometres.

The largest islands are, in order of size, Espiritu Santo, Malakula, Efate, Erromango, and Tanna. Vanuatu has a population of about 173,000. Port-Vila (pop. 15,000)--on Efate--is the nation's capital and largest urban community.

The national anthem is "Yumi, Yumi, Yumi" ("We, We, We"). From 1906 to 1980, the United Kingdom and France jointly governed the islands, which were then called the New Hebrides. In 1980, the islands became the independent nation of Vanuatu.

A Short Background

The British and French who settled the New Hebrides in the 19th century, agreed in 1906 to an Anglo-French Condominium, which administered the islands until independence in 1980.
