Nauru, is a small country located in the Pacific Islands that not many people know of. Nauru is located approximately twenty-five miles south of the earths equator, and it’s closest neighboring country is Banaba, another island that is about two hundred miles east of Nauru. The territorial size of the country is only about eight square miles, with a population of “9540” people (Nauru: 2016 Country Review, 3). Nauru “became an independent” country “in 1968,” making it the “smallest republic in the world” (Nauru - Politics, Government, and Taxation). After becoming a republic in 1968, they decided to follow the same political system used in Great Britain, which is the unicameral parliament.

Smell Good Solutions should open up a factory in Nauru that makes cleaning products. Smell Good Solutions should manufacture in Nauru because the country is rich in phosphates, a mineral commonly found in cleaning products, fosters a large unemployed population, and the country has direct relationships with Australia, which is important for trade. To start off, cleaning products are made from phosphates, therefore the company will need to mine the minerals. That would not be a problem in Nauru since it is rich in phosphates. For this to happened, Smell Good Solutions will need a mining plant that only mines phosphates. “Operators in” the phosphate “industry primarily mine, mill and beneficiate nonmetallic minerals” (Blau, Gaven).

You may ask why is that so important? Well, Nauru fosters a large unemployed population. According to the 2016 country review of Nauru, the unemployment rate is a skyrocketing 90 percent (61). To make the unemployment go down the only solution is to start a multinational company, such as Smell Good Solutions.

Those numbers exceed the population rate, meaning Smell Good Solutions can employee 90 percent or more of the population. By doing so, unemployment rates will drop drastically. The company will have many positions open. Positions will include workers to mine the phosphates, workers to run the machines, workers who maintain and repair the equipment, workers who package the final product, and workers who will be responsible for shipping out the products around the world. There will be different jobs for all sorts of people. Not every citizen will be doing the same thing, therefore the can choose a position they like and are good
