The Tropical Paradise of One Small Island is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Kalani T'ai with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, ritual sacrifices, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.731 billion Islanders are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darkwater. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Islandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,422 trillion Sand Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 146,173 Sand Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 601,166 per year while the poor average 23,432, a ratio of 25.7 to 1.

Family trees become bare as entire branches are lopped off, blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour, human sacrifice to the metaphorical altar of Mammon ensures national prosperity, and small children are frequently chased by rehabilitated pitbulls. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 3,818th in the world and 3rd in Warzone Sandbox for Most Avoided, scoring 274.3 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
