Kiribati (), officially the Republic of Kiribati (Gilbertese: [Ribaberiki] Kiribati), is an independent country in the central Pacific Ocean. The permanent population is just over 110,000 (2015), over half of whom reside on Tarawa atoll. The country comprises 32 atolls and one raised coral island, Banaba. They have a total land area of 811 square kilometres (313 square miles) and are dispersed over 3.5 million km2 (1.4 million sq mi). Their spread straddles the equator and the 180th meridian, although the International Date Line goes round Kiribati and swings far to the east, nearly reaching the 150° W meridian. This brings Kiribati's easternmost islands, the southern Line Islands south of Hawaii, to precisely the same day as the Gilbert Islands and places them at the most advanced time zone on Earth: UTC+14. Kiribati is one of the few countries in the world to be situated in all four hemispheres. Kiribati gained its independence from the United Kingdom, becoming a sovereign state in 1979. The capital, South Tarawa, now the most populated area, is made up of numerous islets, connected by a series of causeways. These comprise about half the area of Tarawa atoll. Kiribati is a member of the Pacific Community (SPC), Commonwealth of Nations, the IMF, and the World Bank, and became a full member of the United Nations in 1999.
