The country has an area of 180 square miles and a population of 85,000. Few official statistics are available on religion; traditionally, 90 percent of the population is Roman Catholic. The population consists largely of immigrants from Spain, Portugal, and France, with citizens constituting 37 percent of inhabitants. Generally, immigrants are also Catholic. It is estimated that one-half of Catholics are active church attendees. Other Christian groups include the New Apostolic Church; The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons); several Protestant denominations, including the Anglican Church; the Reunification Church; and Jehovah's Witnesses. Other religious groups include Muslims (primarily two thousand North African immigrants divided into two groups, one of which is more fundamentalist); Jews (an estimated one hundred); and Hindus.
