2. Pitcairn Islands, Southern Pacific Ocean
Not only is Pitcairn the most remote inhabited jurisdiction in the world, it’s also the smallest — with a population of a whopping 48 people. Most of the island’s residents trace their lineage to Bounty Mutineers and Tahitians that accompanied them. With resources in such short supply, the residents are very used to bartering and sharing with their fellow Pitcairners. All Pitcairners between 16 and 65 are required to help maintain the tiny island. It’s suffice to say life on Pitcairn is much different than most of us are used to.
