Why the ".tv"

 

It begins with Tuvalu, pronounced "too-VAH-loo." Contrary to popular beliefs, Prague TV was born not in the wilds of Bohemia but on the shores of the world's smallest nation, Tuvalu. (Smallest except for Vatican City, but any country with 'city' in their name should surely be left off the list.) Tuvalu will always be the land of our beginning (it all starts with a name, right?) even if she does sink.

 

 

The Tuvalu Islands are located in the Pacific Ocean midway between Hawaii and Australia. With the exception of tiny Vatican City, it is the independent nation with the fewest inhabitants. Due to their low elevation (5 meters, or 14 feet maximum), the islands that make up this nation are threatened by any future sea level rise. The population may evacuate during the next decades to New Zealand, or Niue, a small Pacific island (independent but associated with New Zealand) that isn't threatened by sea level rise, but does have decreasing population.
The Pacific Islands nation of Tuvalu, population 10,600, for years had survived by selling stamps, fishing licenses and collecting foreign aid. Now, thanks to an alphabetic quirk, the country makes $50 million a year in royalties from the ability to sell Internet names and electronic mail addresses ending in Tuvalu's country code, ".tv."
