The island was annexed by Germany in 1888 and its phosphate deposits began to be mined early in the 20th century by a German-British consortium. Nauru was occupied by Australian forces in World War I and subsequently became a League of Nations mandate.

It achieved its independence in 1968 and joined the UN in 1999 as the world's smallest independent republic.
