The island of Niue lies in the Pacific Ocean, equally distant from Samoa, Cook Islands and Tonga. The independent Niue is in free association with New Zealand, so the head of the state is British monarch. Most citizens of Niue currently live in New Zealand. The island was discovered by James Cook, but the natives forbade him to land. The Europeans finally got on the island through Christianizing the inhabitants, and by the beginning of the XX century Niueans asked British to set its protectorate upon them to avoid other foreign occupation. Niue was annexed by New Zealand shortly after that and got its independent government only in 1970’s. The country’s capital is a village, because there aren’t towns and cities on Niue.
