Only about 125 of these small islands are inhabited. The total land area of Micronesia is less than 3,200 sq km, about the size of the state of Rhode Island. The largest island is Guam, with an area of about 540 sq km. There are four primary island groups, or archipelagos: Gilberts, Marshalls, Carolines, and Marianas
