Language quiz

Here's a language I hadn't come across before:
Jilnuul bojjan in ri Majol, rej kio mour im jokwe ilo United States, im kab jikin ko jet an, ekkar nan aer keidri ilo bonbon ko jimor, an US im kab <redacted>.

Bonbon eo an <redacted> nan 2011, ej ripoote 53,158 armij, rej kio jokwe ilo Aelon Kein. Bonbon eo an US nan 2010 ej ba bwe ear wor 22,434 ri Majol rej jokwe ilo United States im kab jikin ko an.

Bonbon kein ruo, elane kobaiki ippen dron, rej kwalok 75,592 ri Majol, ak 30 bojjan in jonan ro im rej jokwe kio ilo US im kab jikin ko an.

Bonbon eo an US nan 2000 eo, ej kwalok bwe ear wor 6,650 ri Majol ilo US. Bonbon eo an <redacted> nan 1999 eo, ear bune 50,840 ri Majol ilo Majol in.

Bonbon kein rej kwaloke 57,490. 6,650 eo im rej jokwe ilo US, rej tarrin in wot, 12 bojjan in woran aolepen ri Majol.
And the English translation:
Thirty percent of <redacted> now live in the United States and its territories, according to a comparison of the recent US and <redacted> national censuses.

The <redacted> census in 2011 reported 53,158 people living in <redacted>. The 2010 US census said there are 22,434 <redacted> living in the United States and its territories.

These two figures combine for a total of 75,592 <redacted>, with 30 percent being accounted for by those living in the US and its territories.

The 2000 US census showed 6,650 <redacted> in the US. The 1999 <redacted> census counted 50,840 <redacted>in the <redacted>.

These total 57,490. The 6,650 living in the US accounted for about 12 percent of all <redacted>.
Anyone like to guess who the "ri Majol" are? (And no sneaky Googling!)
