The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to the Northern Mariana Islands:

The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) is an island country in the western North Pacific Ocean that maintains a political union with the United States.[1] The Northern Mariana Islands comprise 15 islands about three-quarters of the way from Hawaii to the Philippines, at 15°1′2″N 145°4′5″E / 15.01722°N 145.06806°E / 15.01722; 145.06806. The United States Census Bureau reports the total land area of all islands as 179.01 sq mi (463.63 km²).

The Northern Mariana Islands has a population of 80,362 (2005 estimate). The official 2000 census count was 69,221.[2] The Northern Mariana Islands have the lowest male to female sex ratio in the world: 76 men to every 100 women,[1] due to a large number of female foreign workers, especially in the garment industry.[3]
