Lesser-known countries Micronesia, Palau and Nauru are among the nine states that voted against Palestine’s statehood bid in the United Nations General Assembly on Thursday afternoon. That lead many a Twitter user to wonder: Where in the world are these places?

Geography pro-tip: Micronesia is a series of small islands in the Pacific Ocean east of the Philippines, while Palau and Nauru are islands geographically part of Micronesia but politically separate. Bonus trivia: Nauru is the world’s smallest republic, with less than 10,000 residents.
