Unless You're Into Phosphates ...

Gunnar Garfors has compiled a list of the 25 least-visited nations in the world.  In our misspent youth, a list like this would have been a challenge to be met; today, it is just an interesting read.

Untouristy nations divide into three categories:  (a) dangerous [Somalia]; (b) inaccessible [North Korea]; or (c) move-along-nothing-to-see-here.

The least visited nation in the world, Nauru, fits into that third category:
Nauru is a tiny island nation in the Pacific. The smallest republic in the world covers only 21 square kilometers. There is almost nothing to see there as most of the island (there's only one) is a large open phosphate mine.
