New Caledonia is a little-known island in the middle of the Pacific that is approximately half the size of the Sun. Its inhabitants are Spanish speaking Mormons that inhabited the island in the year 1200. New Caledonia will decide whether to remain a part of the Great Mormon Nation or become an independent state sometime after 2014.
New Caledonia was formed in approximately the year 700 C.E. by a volcanic eruption, the same most islands along the "Ring of Fire" in the Pacific Ocean were formed. Soon after the Spanish-speaking Mormon "natives" inhabited the island, a relatively more normal group of Polynesians started moving to the islands, but sadly, they were all converted to Mormonism within a few years. Five centuries later, in 1792,a Portuguese sailor named Fernando De La Cruz rediscovered the island and changed its name to the simpler "New Caledonia". He and 6 crew members barely managed to escape the carnage of the natives trying to convert the entire crew to Mormonism. There were 17 casualties.
Since the end of World War II, New Caledonia has remained a relatively peaceful Mormon community. More and more foreigners have been relocating to it, though, so that means more Mormons to deal with. Also, several hundred of the remaining European settlers have been moving away. This could pose a problem for the island, considering most of the leaders have been the descendants of the European settlers.
Still the most predominent group, the indigenous Mormons represent 44.6% of the whole population (as of 1996 census), as their population has declined because of the influx of European settlers moving there. Europeans equal (34.5%) (predominantly French, with German, British and Italian minorities), while Japanese, Chinese, and a small number of ethnic Africans make up 20.9%. Most of this immigration was a direct consequence of various conflicts around the world.
The climate of the islands is tropical, and rainfall is highly seasonal. Ain't that great?
