It is an independent state only from 1975 and includes the eastern part of the Island of New Guinea and adjacent many islands, among which the islands of the Admiralty, the Bismarck and the northern Salomon Islands.
It is a still mostly virgin nation, on a territory once and half greater than Italy, live less than 5 millions of inhabitants for a density not much superior than 10 ab/ Kmq and the asphalted roads are only 3000 kilometers.
The territory is mostly mountainous covered by a thick forest, only interrupted by plantations of coffee and cocoa and in more less measure of sugar cane, palms and thè.
The subsoil supplies copper, gold, silver and petroleum but without enriching the population, that is mostly poor.
