Fiji is formed by the archipelago of the same name and by the distant island of Rotuma, aggregated in 1881. Located, so to speak, at the crossroads between Melanesia and Polynesia., Fiji derives from their position their complex cultural and ethnic component, made even more seriously heterogeneous by the massive presence of Indians, brought in by the British at the time of their domination on the archipelago and for a long time numerically superior to the indigenous population. For these reasons, the country is characterized by institutional instability and its short history is dotted with attempted coups and overthrow of power, aggravated by conflicts between the various ethnic components. On the contrary, the territory is a naturalistic paradise: the two main islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, are characterized by a rich biodiversity and over half of the total area is covered by vegetation. In the second half of the twentieth century, however, deforestation increased soil erosion, causing a spill of residual sediments into the ocean; this problem, together with oil exploration, threatens the coral reef and coastal ecosystems. However in 2012 the protected areas of the country reached 6% of the territory. There are in fact 5 national parks: the park of the Vunivia basin (Lower Vunivia Catchment), Mount Tomanivi park, Nadrau Plateau park (Western Sector), Sigatoka Sand Dune park and Sovi basin park. According to COUNTRYAAH, Fiji is a nation in Melanesia, the capital city of which is Suva. The latest population of Fiji is 896,456.
The archipelago of Fiji (the number of islands is about 320) is located on the submarine ridge that goes E up to Tonga, W to Vanuatu, between 16 ° and 20 ° 30 ‘of latitude S, 177 ° of longitude E and 177 ° 30 ‘of longitude W, that is, straddling the Greenwich antimeridian. The islands are lined in a horseshoe shape enclosing the Koro Sea. The main islands (Viti Levu, 10,429 km²; Vanua Levu, 5556 km²; Taveuni, 470 km²; the Lau group (410 km²) and the dependence of Rotuma (46 km²). Fiji, mainly volcanic, are connected to the great island arches of Melanesia, of continental origin; at the edges and above the volcanic systems – which, for a long time subject to erosive action, retain few traces of their original structures – there are often conspicuous limestone formations, attesting to the submersion phases undergone by the archipelago; in particular predominant is the limestone nature of the smaller islands. Finally, coral reefs border a large part of the archipelago; frequent are the atolls. The major islands are mainly mountainous, reaching 1323 m in Mount Tomanivi (island of Viti Levu); almost everywhere wavy or flat, however, are the coastal strips, of alluvial origin, which overlook very articulated coasts, with deep inlets, some of which, like the bay of Suva, constitute excellent natural harbors. Fiji lacks proper hydrographic networks; only in Viti Levu there are watercourses of a certain importance, such as the Singatoka, the Rewa and the Navua, which descend radially from the central hills towards the sea. Given the astronomical position, between the Equator and the Tropic of Capricorn, Fiji has a sub-tropical, hot-humid climate; the thermal excesses are however mitigated by the sea breezes. Precipitation is rather abundant, with maximums (up to 3000 mm per year) on the eastern and south-eastern slopes, directly hit by the trade winds; the rains are particularly abundant in the summer period, from November to April, when repeated cyclones can also occur.
