South Sea Islands, officially the Commonwealth of the South Sea Islands, is an island nation in the western part of the Eastern Ocean. The 12,173-square-kilometer (4,700-square mile) territory comprises the two islands of Grand Wulfram and Trinity Island, as well as a number of uninhabited islets.
Largely uninhabited until 1501, the islands were settled by former inhabitants of the Britannic home islands, beginning with the arrival of the SS. Endeavour on Trinity Island. The first of these new settlers arrived on Trinity Sunday (May 31st) of that year, a date which is now celebrated annually as a national holiday. A small population of Calbain descent was discovered several years after the arrival of the new settlers on Trinity Island (known as Ynys Corrach to the indigenous population), and the indigenous culture continues to thrive in the communities descended from it.
