|Small country of Islands in the Indian Ocean. Main source of income for most is tourism.|
The Republic of the Maldives is small archipelagic state in South Asia situated in the Indian Ocean. It lies southwest of Sri Lanka and India, about 430 miles from the Asian continent's mainland. Comprising a territory spanning roughly 90,000 square kilometres (35,000 sq mi) including the sea, land area of all the islands comprises 298 square kilometres (115 sq mi), Maldives is one of the world's most geographically dispersed sovereign states and the smallest Asian country as well as one of the smallest Muslim-majority countries by land area and, with around 557,751 inhabitants.
WorldABCNews reported in 2020 that a female "tourist was arrested in the Maldives for wearing a bikini on a beach for “indecent exposure”, but the incident is now under investigation."
Carbon reduction propaganda
In September 1988, the Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported a "gradual rise in average sea level is threatening to completely cover this Indian Ocean nation of 1196 small islands within the next 30 years," based on predictions made by government officials. Then-Environmental Affairs Director Hussein Shihab told AFP "an estimated rise of 20 to 30 centimetres in the next 20 to 40 years could be ‘catastrophic’ for most of the islands, which were no more than a metre above sea level." The article went on to suggest the Maldives, along with its 200,000 inhabitants, could "end" sooner than expected if drinking water supplies dry up by 1992 “as predicted."

It merely sets the record straight that the jet plane that overflew Kudahuvadhoo has not yet been identified. The Maldives government first claimed there was "no plane", then the plane was a "private jet", then fifteen months later a "domestic propeller plane flight", then back to "no plane", then finally to say it cannot be discussed due to "national security".”||Blaine Gibson||2016|

|Maldives Revisited||Report||12 August 2016||Blaine Gibson||Private investigator Blaine Gibson went with a team of private citizens to the islands of the Maldives, to find the citizens that claimed they saw a plane similar to MH370 in a very narrow time span the night of the disappearance.
