6 of the World’s Most Remote People (Slideshow)

6. Pitcairn Islands, Southern Pacific Ocean

Most of the 48 residents of Pitcairn are the descendents of Bounty Mutineers and Tahitians that accompanied them. The least populated jurisdiction in the world, Pitcairn is a British Overseas Territory. Currently, Pitcairners only have electricity for 10 hours a day, though a wind power plant is in the works

Most of the economy is built around tourism, with visitors mostly staying in Pitcairner’s homes. All Pitcairners between 16 and 65 are required to help maintain the tiny island.

The Pticairn Island seem to be an ideal place o go to get away from it all. I am sure they have their own problems and ideals, but something that simple may be good in a way....
