 Republic of Nauru

There are no personal taxes in Nauru. The unemployment rate is estimated to be 90 per cent, and of those who have jobs, the government employs 95 per cent. The Asian Development Bank notes that although the administration has a strong public mandate to implement economic reforms, in the absence of an alternative to phosphate mining, the medium-term outlook is for continued dependence on external assistance. Tourism is not a major contributor to the economy.
