French Polynesia, originally French Oceania (Etablissements Français d’Oceanie), is a French overseas territory in Polynesia. It consists of a collection of smaller islands, atolls and archipelagos in the southern Pacific at around 15 ° 00 ‘south and 140 ° 00’ west. The best-known and most populous island is Tahiti, as well as the atoll Mururoa, where the French nuclear tests took place. French Polynesia is not part of the EU, but its citizens are French citizens, including EU citizens, and they are eligible to vote in European Parliament elections. On the other hand, the main features of the EU, such as free choice of job, are not applicable in French Polynesia.
