Micronesia does not have a capital as it is not a country but more a general term for a geographical region(according to some dictionaries and encyclopedias). However, there is a capital of the "Federated States of Micronesia the political entity" which is in Palikir on the island state of Pohnpei. … Though for argument's sake, the word "Micronesia" itself can also mean the political entity as the FSM States were the only former TTPI members who decided to make the word "Micronesia" as part of it's new Constitutional Government's name. So, I will contradict myself and say that the capital of Micronesia is in Palikir on the island state of Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia. (MORE)

Each state is made up of multiple small islands spread in a large area of ocean and each historically has its own time zone: . Chuuk's… time zone is called Truk Time, since Chuuk used to be called Truk. The time zone is abbreviated as TRUT. It corresponds with the GMT/UTC Zone +10. . Yap's time zone is known as Yap Time, abbreviated as YAPT, also GMT/UTC +10. . Kosrae has Kosrae Time, abbreviated as KOST, corresponding to GMT/UTC + 11. .

Yes, geographically speaking, Palau(Belau) is in the Micronesian Archipelago therefore making it part of Micronesia.

So maybe a better answer is, "Palau, and the Marshalls(RMI) for that matter, are in Micronesia and is debate-able depending upon who you ask and what mood they are in".

Especially the islands of Yap and surrounding islands are crossed by tornadoes who are moving westwards towards Marianas and Philippines and the Asian mainland. The inhabitants live with it, and have a realistic view o…f the danger.
