The Holy Black Flag Rebellion of One Small Island is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kalani T'ai with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.238 billion Islanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darkwater. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Islandian economy, worth 153 trillion Sand Dollars a year, is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 124,189 Sand Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens can't decide whether to be proud or horrified by the country's colonial history, Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer, new treatments are rejected if they cannot be explained using only one-syllable words, and euthanasia is legal. 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 4,999th in the world and 1st in Warzone Sandbox for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 112,019.33 Standard Monetary Units.
