Micronesia is a constituency of Pacific Oceania region and comprises thousands of small islands in the western Pacific Ocean, Northeast of Papua New Guinea. Technically it is known as the Federated States of Micronesia, which was originally proposed by French Naval explorer Jules Dumont d?Urville in 1831.

Micronesia consists of four unique states, Kosrae, Pohnpei, Chuuk and Yap. Although they are considered to be a part of one territory, they all have their own distinctive traditions and cultural identities. About the only similarities between them are the beautiful coral reefs that fringe the islands.
