French Polynesia (French: Polynesie francaise, Tahitian: Porinetia Farani) is a French "overseas collectivity" (French: collectivite d'outre-mer, or COM) with the particular designation of "overseas country" (French: pays d'outre-mer, or POM) in the southern Pacific Ocean. It is made up of several groups of Polynesian islands, the most famous island being Tahiti in the Society Islands group, which is also the most populous island, and the seat of the capital of the territory (Papeete). Although not an integral part of its territory, Clipperton Island is administered from French Polynesia.
The islands of French Polynesia have a total land area of 4,167 square kilometres (1,622 sq. mi) scattered over 2,500,000 square kilometres (965,255 sq. mi) of ocean. It is made up of several groups of islands, the largest and most populated of which is Tahiti. The island groups are:
Bass Islands (often considered part of the Austral Islands)
Gambier Islands (often considered part of the Tuamotu Archipelago)
Society Islands (including Tahiti)
Aside from Tahiti, important atolls and islands, and island groups in French Polynesia include Ahe, Bora Bora, Hiva Oa, Huahine, Maiao, Maupiti, Mehetia, Moorea, Nuku Hiva, Raiatea, Tahaa, Tetiaroa, Tubuai, and Tupai.
French Polynesia has a moderately developed economy, which is dependent on imported goods, tourism, and the financial assistance of mainland France. Tourist facilities are well developed and are available on the major islands.Also, as the noni fruit from these islands is discovered for its medicinal uses, people have been able to find jobs related to this agricultural industry.
The legal tender of French Polynesia is the CFP franc; merchants have been reported to accept other currencies very readily, but many tourists have been disappointed and inconvenienced through assuming they can use U.S. dollars and other foreign currencies.
