Federated States of Micronesia

Requested by Devin

Micronesian Fact 1 (Mar. 2–Mar. 8, 2008)

Chief Micronesian agricultural exports include tapioca, pepper, chickens, and pigs.

Micronesian Fact 2 (Mar. 9–Mar. 15, 2008)

The Federated States of Micronesia have no railroads, and only 240 km (149 mi.) of roads.

Micronesian Fact 3 (Mar. 16–Mar. 22, 2008)

FSM has 607 islands, but only 6 airports.  This (and the lack of roads) helps explain how a country full of tropical Pacific islands has no tourist industry (or any other industry for that matter).

Micronesian Fact 4 (Mar. 23–Mar. 29, 2008)

Micronesia is really a country of nothing, but that’s not always negative.  They also have no political parties—all fourteen of their congressmen are independents.
