Living in Maldives

The Republic of Maldives is an island state in the Indian Ocean. More than 1000 islands make up the state altogether, and 427,000 people live on these islands collectively. The Maldives has a long history; from Buddhism, to Islam, to a period under Portuguese colonial rule and later British influence, and finally to independence in 1968. In recent history, arguably the most notable event is the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake, which led to a severe tsunami which caused around 400 million US Dollars of damage. Within an average altitude of 1.5 metres above sea level, the Maldives is the lowest lying country globally. This makes it extremely vulnerable to rising sea levels due to global warming, and therefore the Maldives are highly active in lobbying for greater international environmental legislation. While seafood comprises the overwhelming majority of the Maldives’ exports, it is tourism that is the most valuable industry for the state, contributing to 90% of government income. The state is firmly Islamic in terms of religion, and there were reports of disillusioned young men frequently leaving the country to join the Islamic State group during the height of the Syria crisis. The official language is Dhivehi, though English is spoken by the majority of the population as a result of the tourism industry.
