A tiny island in the SouthPacific, one of the most remote sites of human habitation on the planet.  Its fascinating history begins with the famous mutiny on the H.M.S. Bounty; the original PitcairnErs were roughneck sailors and their Tahitian "wives."  An English-Polynesian creole, as well as English, are spoken there.  A protectorate of the U.K.--but politically unique.  Population (1991) around 60.
