The tiny Pitcairn Islands are a literal speck on a world map. It comprises four islands: Oeno, Henderson, and Ducie are all uninhabited, with Pitcairn Island having a population of around 50 people and measuring just five square kilometers (1.9sq. miles). The nearest inhabited island is Mangareva in French Polynesia, which is a 36-hour-boat ride away. The four islands are the only British Overseas Territory in the Pacific Ocean.
The population of Pitcairn Island is descended from mutineers from the HMS Bounty who arrived on the island in 1790 as they sought to escape British naval justice after the infamous "Mutiny on the Bounty."
