Solomon Island has its political and social history as well. To shade some light, it was under the British protectorate between the 1890s and 1976. That is to say; it became an independent island on 7th July 1976. Like any other social environment, Solomon Island has villages with fields at strategic areas for games, meetings, and social functions.

The natural resources are fish, bauxite, gold, phosphates, zinc, and nickel. Because of the natural economic interdependence, she trades with countries like China, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, and Australia.

The communities live in Tribal villages. Families put up houses closer to relatives and so on. And most of them are proud of their ability to track down up to ten generations.

Like any other country that establishes its economy, Solomon Island has industries like fish (tuna), mining, timber, and also gets involved in agricultural products like rice, potatoes, coconut, fish, and palm kernels. She exports copra, palm oil timber, and fish.
