The timezone FJT on the FijisTimezones are always computed by their difference to UTC, the "Universal Time Coordinated". On the Fijis there is only a single tonezone at UTC+12. For example, New York is currently at UTC-4 in Eastern Time, so the time difference between New York and the Fijis is 16 hours.
They have a nationwide clock change from standard time to daylight saving time, where the clocks are switched forward by one hour in summer.

The Fijis has an east-west extension of 2.0 degrees of longitude. Given the country's location in Melanesia, this corresponds to about 210 kilometers. With such a small extent the course of the sun at different positions in the country hardly matters. The position of the sun in the west of the country deviates from that in the east only about 8 minutes. This means the sun rises and sets 8 minutes later in the west than in the east.
