The outlines of Oceania are not strictly defined. They are roughly the area limited to the archipelagos between Asia, Australia and the US West Coast. At issue is sometimes the allocation of Papua New Guinea. Geographically the main part of the island belongs to Asia. Other parts are in the island chain of the Solomon Islands and therefore in Oceania. Politically ist is often even associated with Australia.

The area of Antarctica does not belong to Oceania. But for navigation purposes, we also listed it here.

Oceania consists of 27 different countries with a total surface of 15.00 million kmĀ². This corresponds to a share of 10% of the habitable earth surface. The coastlines in and around Oceania altogether have a lentgh of 52,010 km. In these 27 countries are living 10.11 million people (=0.14% of the world's population).
