Oceania

Population: 35,670,000 (est.)

List of Countries:

Interesting Facts:

  • The name Oceania is used, rather than Australia, because unlike the other continental groupings, it is the ocean rather than the continent that links the nations together.
  • Urbanization and industrialization also vary in Oceania. 89% of Oceania’s urbanization are in Australia and New Zealand. The rest of Oceania are not as well developed, some of the island nations do not even have enough clean drinking water or food to supply to their citizens.

Oceania is a region centered on the islands of the tropical Pacific Ocean. Opinions of what constitutes Oceania range from the coral atolls and volcanic islands of the South Pacific (ethnologically divided into the subregions of Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia) to the entire insular region between Asia and the Americas, including Australasia and the Malay Archipelago. The term is sometimes used more specifically to denote a continent comprising Australia and proximate islands, or biogeographically as a synonym for either the Australasian ecozone (Wallacea and Australasia) or the Pacific ecozone (Melanesia, Polynesia, and Micronesia apart either from New Zealand or from mainland New Guinea).
