Pitcairn, Henderson, Ducie and Oeno Islands are the four islands in the Pacific Ocean forming the self-governing British Overseas Territory known collectively as the Pitcairn Islands. With only 50 people living on the island of Pitcairn, this is the least populous national jurisdiction in the world. This is the only dependency of the British Crown in the Pacific. Head of State is Queen Elizabeth II, represented here by the Governor, who is also the High Commissioner of the United Kingdom to New Zealand. Head of the Pitcairn government is the directly elected mayor. Local currency is the New Zealand dollar. Official languages are English and Pitkern (Pitcairnese).
80% of the annual revenue of the Pitcairn Islands is generated by tourism. Other major sectors are agriculture and fishing.

Pitcairn Islands are not considered an offshore jurisdiction or a tax haven. However, some experts believe this territory is a tax haven like almost all other British Overseas Territories.

Local legislation is based on the English law. Business activities are regulated by the British Company and Business Names Act 1999, the local Registration of Business Names Ordinance of 2014 and other relevant laws.
