Tristan da Cunha
Tristan da Cunha lies in the south Atlantic Ocean, 2,816 kilo­me­ters (1,750 mi) from the nearest land, South Afric. In 1816 the United Kingdom formally annexed the islands, to ensure that the French would be unable to use the islands as a base for a rescue op­er­a­tion to free Napoleon Bona­parte from his prison in Saint Helena. Today, the main island has a per­ma­nent pop­u­la­tion of 275.
