Kiribati is a country located in the Pacific Ocean. This country is only inhabited by one hundred thousand people. Despite being one of the small countries, Kiribati had applied for membership in the International Football Federation (FIFA).

Kiribati applied through the Oceania Football Federation (OFC), but the application was often rejected. This was because FIFA and OFC could not work well together. Therefore, Kiribati cannot participate in the World Cup as it is not a member of FIFA.

2. Micronesia
