Papua New Guinea (PNG) is a heavily forested country with rich tribal traditions lying to the north of Australia. It is part of Oceania and the capital is Port Moresby. Heavy settlement of cities and towns is a refreshing part of the country's appeal, although it does cause some instability between tribes. The country is rugged with a large amount of plant and wildlife species.
The linguistic, ethnic, and geographic diversity of PNG is staggering. 800 languages are spoken and there are thousands of different clans. PNG also has 600 islands in the country. Agriculture, fishing, forestry, minerals, and energy are the major economic sectors.
