South Pacific Ocean desert island, about halfway between Hawaii and the Cook Islands. 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. Windy, little rainfall, no shade, no fresh water.
