Samoa (samoan. Malo Tutoatasi o Samoa; English Independent State of Samoa) is an island state that includes the western part of the Samoa islands and is therefore also called Western Samoa. The eastern part belongs to the USA (see American Samoa). Samoa is located in the southwestern Pacific, northeast of Fiji. The largest islands are Savai’i (1,708 km²) and Upolu (1,118 km²) with the capital Apia, by far the largest and economically most important city in the country and the international airport.
On December 31, 2011, Samoa skipped a day and changed the time zone. Until then it was the country that welcomed the New Year last, now it is the first.
