The Marshall Islands, officially the Republic of the Marshall Islands (Marshallese: Aolepān Aorōkin M̧ajeļ), is an island country located near the equator in the Pacific Ocean, slightly west of the International Date Line. Geographically, the country is part of the larger island group of Micronesia.
Bikini Atoll was the site of more than 20 nuclear weapons tests by the United States, between 1946 and 1958, including the test of a practical hydrogen bomb in 1954. Jack (Naked Snake) was stationed at the American base on Kwajalein on March 1, 1954, during the "Bravo Shot," the most powerful nuclear device ever detonated by the United States, with a yield of 15 megatons of TNT.
In 1964, when film enthusiast Para-Medic described Godzilla's origins (via nuclear testing) to Naked Snake, the latter commented that the Marshall Islands must be "crawling with monsters."
