The 'Marshall Islands' - name taken from a British sea captain - weren't regarded by their Micronesian inhabitants as a single unit. This is not surprising: their sea area is quoted as (depending on how it's measured) 200,000 up to 800,000 square miles - France is about 200,000 square miles. The land area is a microscopic part of that - 70 square miles. No wonder they were named 'micronesian'. There are, at least notionally, two chains; the average height above sea level is quoted as 2 metres - just as well that their chunk of the Pacific is described as 'peaceful'. Bikini as at the north west (or top left on usual maps).
From the point of view of fake nukes, the location is well-chosen: in vast areas of sea, impossible to spy on. But if nukes were genuine, able to hollow out big chunks of earth, the location makes much less sense - the atolls would completely vanish, taking the evidence with them.
From the social point of view, these islands seem a bit of a disaster, with a mongrel population entirely dependent on the USA, like pets, though proponents of multiculture (for other people) might approve. If they found evidence of nuke fakery, they would have powerful motives not to talk about it.
Former eras of Spanish, German, Japanese, and American administration and intermarriage between Marshall Islanders and other Pacific Islanders mean that Marshall Islanders often learn multiple languages. Many residents understand and/or speak a pidgin English ...
... independent only since 1986... With a very high rate of population increase, the Marshall Islands has changed rapidly from 43,380 people in 1988 to a projected population of well over 60,000 in 1999. Residents are very mobile, and nearly 80 percent are now urban. Approximately one-half of the population resides on Majuro Atoll where government employment created a post-independence population explosion. The other urban enclave is Ebeye (Epja islet), Kwajalein Atoll, one of the world's most densely-populated locations, where many residents work on the United States military base on nearby Kwajalein islet.
The [US] military conducts research, development, testing and evaluation using cutting-edge radar, optical and telemetry sensors. The $4 billion strategic military base and the large lagoon at Kwajalein Atoll provide an ideal location for testing long-range missiles from the continental U.S. and short to intermediate range missiles from the Pacific region.

SINCERLY ALEE KATTU TERM #2
From the secure site https://marshallislands.llnl.gov/ showing a suspicious-looking photo. (A few of us had an offline debate about the image of that tripod - could the missing detail of that third leg, and the far side of the left leg, really be concealed like that?) Anyway that 'gov' site has official information on the Marshall Islands and Bikini. There doesn't seem much chance that any islanders with evidence, or people at the huge base at Kwajalein, would post to this site, though.
