The Tropical Paradise of One Small Island is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Kalani T'ai with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, public floggings, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.859 billion Islanders enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darkwater. The average income tax rate is 29.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Islandian economy, worth 821 trillion Sand Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 140,134 Sand Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children often kick Seagulls for amusement, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, panicking criminals no longer flush contraband down the toilet, and the roundel of the Islandian Air Force has become an internationally recognized symbol of destruction. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. One Small Island's national animal is the Seagull, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Piracy.

One Small Island is ranked 996th in the world and 1st in Warzone Sandbox for Highest Crime Rates, with 55.35 crimes per hour.
