North Pacific Ocean island, about halfway between Hawaii and Australia. A U.S. Territory. The CIA World Factbook lists guano as its major mineral resource. Uninhabited. You have to get a special-use permit from the Fish and Wildlife Service of the U.S. Department of the Interior to visit there. When Amelia Earhart disappeared over the Pacific, this was her next scheduled refueling stop.
