Solomon Islands:

A sovereign country consisting of a large number of islands in Oceania, Solomon Islands is one such nation where Human Development Index is still low with just 0.51 percent.

This nation still remains as one of the poorest countries in the Pacific. Despite this fact, there has been some recent economic progress with GDP per capita increase to almost $1,500.
