Adamstown is the only settlement of the Pitcairn Islands, and by default, the capital of the Pitcairn Islands. It is located on the central north of the island and has a population of 50 - the entire population of the Pitcairn Islands. Adamstown currently holds the record for the smallest capital in the world, yet it still has access to television, Internet, and telephone lines. The city is where most residents eat and sleep, while they mainly pick fruit and hunt for food at other areas of the island.
