Oceania

Oceania is a vast, arbitrarily defined expanse of the world where the Pacific Ocean – rather than land borders – connects the nations. It's home to glistening white beaches, coconut palms swaying in the breeze, beautiful coral reefs, and rugged volcanic islands rising out of the blue ocean. See it before global warming and rising sea levels submerge the atolls.

(It should not be confused in any way with the fictional empire of the same name in George Orwell's novel 1984.)

Regions

Note: Although these regions include the majority of islands in Oceania, some islands are not included in any of them.
