General information

This map is an approximation of actual country borders.


Fiji has the largest population of all the South Pacific island countries, with an estimated 2010 population of 854 000: 433 000 males and 421 000 females. The average annual growth rate stands at 0.8%, the slow growth being due to a moderately low level of fertility and a high level of emigration, especially among Indo-Fijians. Fiji’s Economic Exclusive Zone contains 332 islands covering a total land area of 18 333 square kilometres in 1.3 million square kilometres of the South Pacific Ocean.
