In terms of land area, Nauru is the smallest of all independent republics, but its per capita national income is very high, and the welfare benefits of its citizens are not inferior to Western countries. Free services such as housing, lights, telephone, and medical services are implemented nationwide. For thousands of years, countless seabirds have come to live on this small island, leaving a large amount of bird droppings on the island. Over the years, the bird droppings have undergone chemical changes and become a layer of high-quality fertilizer up to 10 meters thick. Call it "phosphate mine". 80% of the country's land is rich in such minerals. Nauru people rely on phosphate mines to become "rich" with an average annual income of US$8,500.
