Let me add some fun facts about where I live.

FSM (Federated States of Micronesia). 14th largest exclusive economic zone in the world: more than 2.6 million sq. km (1 million sq. miles) of Pacific Ocean. Pop: 100,000.

Yap Island (pop 7000), home of unique stone money, which is still valuable.

I live about 200 km from the deepest point on the planet, Challenger Deep, discovered in the 1870s, more than 2 km deeper than Everest is tall.
