Have you ever known about the pieces of land under such a name? There is nothing unusual if you haven't because the Pitcairn Islands are a loosely grouped handful of tiny islands in the remote South Pacific, farther from any continent than any other inhabited island! The islands are the last British colony in the South Pacific and the most isolated British dependency, apart from Tristan da Cunha. The rugged main island was settled by the infamous mutineers of the HMS Bounty and their Polynesian companions, and most of Pitcairn's current inhabitants are their descendants. All the other four islands are uninhabited. Officially, the population of the island is 56 people (as of 2014), though de facto only 45-48 people live there permanently. Another interesting fact is that the islands are one of the least-populated entities given an ISO country code (PN).
