The principal island cluster state of Micronesia, with half the population concentrated on it. It is a large volcanic island, with eight atolls. The official language is English, although like the other cluster states, it has its own language. Its highest mountain is Hahnalaud, at 772 metres. Its capital is Palikir. W. 158 20', N. 007 00', I think, or near enough.

Formerly 'Ponape'.
