Edinburgh of the Seven Seas

Edinburgh of the Seven Seas is regarded as the most remote permanent settlement on Earth, being 2,173 kilometres (1,350 mi)[2] from the nearest human settlement, on Saint Helena.

Stumbled across this place on a map today, I was mostly impressed by the name, which it turns out:

It is named after Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh, the second son of Queen Victoria, in honour of his visit to the island in 1867

It gets better, there’s one road and it’s called the M1. There’s one ambulance, one fire engine, one police car, one factory, one store, one school, pretty much one of everything apart from churches, they have an Anglican and a Catholic church. 268 people live there and as a British overseas territory it uses +44 if you want to phone anyone there.
