FSM is a group of 607 islands in the western Pacific Ocean. These islands vary in size from small islets that disappear at high tide to atolls to large volcanic islands of more than 80 km2. Approximately 65 of the islands are inhabited. The most striking physical characteristic of FSM is the small land area spread over a great expanse of water. The country is divided into four states: Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei and Yap, which each have a considerable degree of autonomy. Annex 1 provides further details about the individual states.
