Nauru Island or the Republic of Nauru got recognition as a League of Nations mandate administered by Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom in the 19th Century. After World War I, Nauru Island, or the Republic of Nauru, was initially inhabited by Micronesian and Polynesian people and was later colonized by Germany, the United Kingdom, and Australia.

After gaining independence from Australia in 1968, Nauru became one of the wealthiest countries in the world due to its extensive phosphate mining industry—however, due to certain factors, including mismanagement of resources and environmental damage caused by mining, led to economic decline and social issues in the Island.

Due to certain factors, Nauru Island faces many challenges, including a high prevalence of obesity and diabetes, limited natural resources, and dependence on foreign aid. The nation has tried diversifying its economy and improving its infrastructure, including investments in renewable energy and tourism.
