Papua New Guinea
Papua New Guinea (PNG) consists of a group of around 600 islands, including eastern New Guinea, lying to the north of Australia. PNG is comprised of mainly mountainous and volcanic terrain, with the rest of the country’s geography made up of rolling foothills and coastal lowlands. PNG obtained its independence from Australia in 1975. Although PNG is now a constitutional parliamentary democracy, political coalitions are unstable and corruption is prevalent throughout the government sector.
