Papua New Guineaball (Officially, the Independent State of Papua New Guinea) is a country in Oceania that lives on the eastern half of the island of Papua and its offshore islands in Melanesia.
- Papua New Guineaball is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world. 848 different languages are listed for the country, of which 12 are extinct (have no known living speakers.)
- He is one of the poorest countries in the pacific, but a lot of people live in isolated areas and are simple tribal-towns.
- Papua New Guinea is often labelled as potentially the worst place in the world for gender violence.
- He is helped by Philippinesball into Asean (Timor is also helped by Philippinesball). He suffers from dyslexia due to a large proportion of his people are illiterate.
- He is scared of his father's training habits; Australia, ever since he was a young boy.
- He is Australiaball's son (depending on the writer's part, he is either his long lost son or an adopted one) and is currently trying to get more allowance from him.

Papua New Guinea is divided into four regions, which are not the primary administrative divisions but are quite significant in many aspects of government, commercial, sporting and other activities.
The nation has 22 province-level divisions: twenty provinces, the Autonomous Region of Bougainville and the National Capital District. Each province is divided into one or more districts, which in turn are divided into one or more Local Level Government areas.
Provinces are the primary administrative divisions of the country. Provincial governments are branches of the national government – Papua New Guinea is not a federation of provinces. The province-level divisions are as follows:
In 2009, Parliament approved the creation of two additional provinces: Hela Province, consisting of part of the existing Southern Highlands Province, and Jiwaka Province, formed by dividing Western Highlands Province. Jiwaka and Hela officially became separate provinces on 17 May 2012.
At 462,840 km2 (178,704 sq mi), Papua New Guinea is the world's fifty-fourth largest country by area. Including all its islands, it lies between latitudes 0° and 12°S, and longitudes 140° and 160°E.
The country's geography is diverse and, in places, extremely rugged. A spine of mountains, the New Guinea Highlands, runs the length of the island of New Guinea, forming a populous highlands region mostly covered with tropical rainforest, and the long Papuan Peninsula, known as the 'Bird's Tail'. Dense rainforests can be found in the lowland and coastal areas as well as very large wetland areas surrounding the Sepik and Fly rivers. This terrain has made it difficult for the country to develop transportation infrastructure. Some areas are accessible only on foot or by aeroplane. The highest peak is Mount Wilhelm at 4,509 metres (14,793 ft). Papua New Guinea is surrounded by coral reefs which are under close watch, in the interests of preservation.
The country is situated on the Pacific Ring of Fire, at the point of collision of several tectonic plates. There are a number of active volcanoes, and eruptions are frequent. Earthquakes are relatively common, sometimes accompanied by tsunamis.
The mainland of the country is the eastern half of New Guinea island, where the largest towns are also located, including Port Moresby (capital) and Lae; other major islands within Papua New Guinea include New Ireland, New Britain, Manus (Which Australiaball has a detention centre on) and Bougainville.
Papua New Guinea is one of the few regions close to the equator that experience snowfall, which occurs in the most elevated parts of the mainland.
