Tuvalu has a capital city with absolutely the neatest name of any city on the planet. It comes up on trivia tests from time-to-time because it's the first country to celebrate New Years.

It makes sense for shipping rates to be reasonable. Lots of small businesses rely on it and, in any country, it helps their economy. Unless we want an economy where only fourtune 500 companies can afford to do business.
I recently received a package that came from Tuvalu (wow did Amazon set up a distribution center there?)
Turned out it was something I bought on eBay. The interesting thing was the tracking showed it was actually shipped from HongKong.
I sell things on eBay occasionally. I wonder if I can set up a Tuvalu postal account and drop the packages off at my local US postoffice? Wonder if what their rates are?
