The Tropical Paradise of One Small Island

The Tropical Paradise of One Small Island is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kalani T'ai with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.661 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darkwater. The average income tax rate is 23.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Islandian economy, worth 480 trillion Sand Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 131,252 Sand Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The carbon tax fund gladly supplies warm blankets when the poor can't pay their heating bills, relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, Kalani T'ai shot first, and children often kick Seagulls for amusement. 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.
