The Tropical Paradise of One Small Island is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kalani T'ai with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, public floggings, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.303 billion Islanders enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darkwater. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Islandian economy, worth 293 trillion Sand Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 127,295 Sand Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation gives peace a chance - usually one in a million, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, international trade is a sticky issue, and parents are shocked to find out that having kids costs money. 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 Vampire Seagull, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

One Small Island is ranked 35,692nd in the world and 26th in Warzone Sandbox for Highest Poor Incomes, with 49,890.71 Standard Monetary Units.
