Tuvaluball or Elice Islandsball is a countryball in Oceania, it is made up of 3 reef islands and 6 normal islands. It is the world's 4th smallest countryball and it only has an internet domain. It is uninhabited.
Tuvalu was first discovered by Spanish explorers on 16 January 1568 during the voyage to Nuie. The explorers gave the name "Valu del Jesus" meaning "Islets of Jesus" because the day of discovery was Easter.
British people from Kiribati came to colonize the island and killed native islanders, 7balls, and some Spanish people. The native islanders surrenders but the spanish government doesn't this creates a dispute
During the Brit-Spanish dispute a lot of Natives were used as Soldiers or slaves so a revolution happened occurred at the end the three sides decided to make peace and make it British Commonwealth, Tuvaluan Rule and Brit-Spanish name -Tu meaning Transitive Un-Partisan and Valu for island in Spanish
Rising Sea levels
Global warming caused Tuvalu to be 86% flooded
