They have their own rules.

The Islands are scattered at 350 km, the distance between adjacent Islands at the same time as a rule from 50 to 100 km. Total land area – 26 km2. The population is 206 people. 11 the Centre of the country – the Atoll of Funafuti, where he lives about half the population of Tuvalu. Funafuti is a typical coral Atoll consisting of a ring of small Islands with a lagoon in the center. The Islands barely rise above the ocean (the highest point of Tuvalu is 5 meters above sea level).
