The following seems not to make sense: "Kapingamarangi has a population of about 700, most of whom live on Pohnpei." The island of Pohnpei is ~750km away from Kapingamarangi. If you live on Pohnpei, how can you be considered part of Kapingamarangi's population? If, on the other hand, "Pohnpei" is referring to the state of Pohnpei, then everyone in Kapingamarangi lives in Pohnpei. Right? It's entirely possible, though, that I'm just reading something wrong.  : ) Fried Gold 17:25, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

No, you're not reading anything wrong. That's what it said in plain English, and it was utter nonsense. I have to use the past instead of the present, because I already removed the statement in question. However, the current resident population of the atoll is around 500, not 700. So I cannot rule out that the 700 figure (which I could not verify anywhere) would include some 200 Kapingamarangi Polynesians who moved to the state's main island of Pohnpei.--Ratzer (talk) 09:42, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Guedes, Coroa, Pescadores y Ocea conforman la Micronesia española, un conjunto de islas que legalmente pertenecen a España. Estas posesiones de ultramar no fueron contemplados ni en el tratado hispano-estadounidense, firmado en París el 10 de diciembre de 1898, ni en el Tratado germano-español en el que se vendía al Imperio alemán los archipiélagos de Carolinas, Palaos y Marianas, excepto la isla de Guam, realizado en Madrid el 30 de junio de 1899. Por tanto, tal y como descubrió el investigador del CSIC D. Emilio Pastor y Santos en el año 1949, España podría hacer legalmente una reclamación de soberanía ante las Naciones Unidas. Lo que ocurre es que al día de hoy y en tanto no se le encuentre un desarrollo económico adecuado, el Gobierno de España no las ocupa de forma permanente ni las reclama como posesiones propias. Desde luego sería imprescindible contar con la población de estas islas, la cual tendrían derecho a la nacionalidad española, respetando sus tradiciones, usos, costumbres y lengua.
