The Kingdom of Hawai'i (Hawaiian: Aupuni Mōʻī o Hawaiʻi) is a small kingdom consisting of several large islands and hundreds of smaller ones in the central Pacific Ocean. The Kingdom is primarily comprised of the islands of Ni'ihau, Kaua'i, Maui, O'ahu, Hawai'i, Moloka'i, and Lana'i. It currently maintains a population of about five million inhabitants, half of which are native Hawaiians. The current monarch is Kamehameha XII, the fifteenth Hawaiian monarch of the House of Kamehameha (founded 1810). The capital is Lahaina on the island of Maui, and the largest city is Honolulu on the island of O'ahu. The official language of Hawai'i is Hawai'ian, in which all government correspondence is done. However, ever since the Lingual Amendment of 1975, English and Japanese are required to be displayed in the trilingual country due to the high number of Americans and Japanese immigrants living in Hawai'i.
