Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands


Tirow! You have reached the CNMI...


The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) forms a chain of 17 volcanic islands, stretching over 375 miles north to south, with a land area of 181 square miles. There are six inhabited islands, but most of the 77,311 inhabitants (est. 2002) live on Saipan. The CNMI was formerly a part of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands; however, its people opted in the 1970s to form a closer tie with the United States and become a commonwealth. The CNMI is permanently a part of the United States, and its people are U.S. citizens. Tourism is a major industry and manufacturing is growing rapidly.
