The Pacific region includes 25,000 islands in the Pacific Ocean and includes Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and 26 smaller island states and territories. The total population is about 35 million, and two-thirds of these people live in Australia. The majority of people are of European descent, however there are significant numbers of Melanesian, Polynesian and Asian people. The majority of people throughout the Pacific region are Christians, predominantly Protestant or Roman Catholic, although there is an increasing number of non-religious people in the wealthy countries of Australia and New Zealand.
