The Republic of Kiribati, known commonly as Kiribati, is an island nation in the Pacific Ocean. It is a flat country of 103,500 people lying upon a coral atoll. Kiribati stands unique as it may be the first nation to be eliminated by rising ocean levels. It is an active participant in AOSIS and the UNFCCC. In 2012, the government of Kiribati began a series of overhauls to the infrastructure and education. The primary focus of Kiribatan education is now immigration, as they prepare to abandon their nation to the waves. The government has been working with Fiji to purchase land for evacuation.
