Hi everyone I just wanted to share some info about the U.S Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands (CNMI)

The 3 main populated islands of the CNMI are Saipan,Rota,Tinian,and the CNMI is part of a region in the Pacific called "Micronesia".

The people born here are U.S Citizens(Americans)

The Native People and Language is called Chamorro(Chamoru),but English and Carolinian languages are also widely spoken here.

Hello="Hafa Adai(Pronounced like "Hahfah Day")
Goodbye="Adios"

The Native Chamorro Population here is only 23%.

The Chamorro's and the Carolinian People here are classified as Pacific Islanders.

The Culture here is a blend of Native Chamorro/Carolinian/Hispanic/Asian/American as well as other Islander cultures from throughout the Pacific.

Here's a youtube video about the CNMI.

Itīs crazy how far it is from the Mainland, not just distance but in terms of being so isolated. One would have to fly to Honolulu, then Guam and then Saipan just to go visit.

I wanted to share this,because most Americans are unaware that the people in The U.S Commonwealth of The Northern Mariana Islands(CNMI) are U.S Citizens too.

The CNMI is not really isolated..Asia and Australia is nearby...Hawaii on the other hand is more isolated from any landmass.

Guam and The CNMI is far away from the U.S Mainland,but it makes a good stopover for a few days on your way to Asia or Australia.

Itīs very, very connected to Asia for sure..look at all the flights to China, Japan, the Philippines, etc.

BUT it sure is hard to get to the Mainland is what I mean.

Well The CNMI is very connected with Flights to Asia,because most of it's visitors are from Asia with it's closer proximity.

Their is not much airline passenger traffic between the CNMI and the U.S Mainland which is why their are not direct flights between the 2 places.

You should post this in the Hawaii or the Polynesian Forum,because this thread is about The CNMI which is in Micronesia not Polynesia.

If the rest of Micronesia, essentially the old Trust Territory plus Nauru and Kiribati were merged, they would have enough population to be a state. However, it would be much poorer than Mississippi, and all of those places suffer badly from nepotism and poor governance. The ethnic rivalries would most likely make it ungovernable. Outside the US Territories of Guam and the CNMI, and to a lesser extent the country of Palau, the rest of the countries (Nauru, Kiribati, FSM, and Marshals) are so incredibly poor, it would never function. Still, it would be the most beautiful state in the US, and probably have the best scuba diving in the world.
