"Look, there’s a coconut"


.NU tld

For want of a coconut a domain name was born oh my god, WHT has a larger population that this island nation.


With a population of about 1,800, Niue Island is one of the smallest countries in the world. The name “Niue” is derived from the loose Niuean language translation for “Look, there’s a coconut.” A self-governing state in free association with New Zealand, Niue is located in the South Pacific at 169 degrees West by 19 South. While often cited as being the largest coral atoll in the world, its land-mass of roughly 260 square kilometers (100 sq. mi.), which is about one and a half times the size of Washington, D.C., actually makes it one of the smallest countries. With its nearest neighbors, Tonga and Samoa, roughly 400 miles away, it is also one of the most isolated countries in the world.

TK domains (Tokelau).
Has a population of about 1,450.
10 square miles
lowest point: Pacific Ocean 0 m
highest point: unnamed location 5 m

Now that's not only small but short.
