Federated States of Micronesia

Plaiting rainbow skirts

There's something to be said for a country that tries to outlaw ties and baseball caps. Despite being firmly tied to the USA's economic and political apron strings, the Federated States of Micronesia are doggedly hanging onto their traditional ways - this is a country where men flaunt their loincloths and stone coins still have currency. The Micronesians are proud of their past, especially since they were navigating the Pacific before Columbus was a glint in Queen Isabella's eye. The laid-back islands have some of the world's best wreck diving, and are considered an untouristed haven for beach bunnies and scuba groovers.
