    Small island nation? What? this is a british outpost with british very recent, in historycal terms, inmigrants as the vast majority.

    According to the UN, they are no nation, they are a colony, theres no falkalds culture, there were almost no one until the pirate fisheries came, and there is no heterogeneus culture, only brits. If it smells brit, looks brit, talks like brit, builds houses like brit, steals resources like brit, well,it HAS to be brit.

    “Here's a health unto Her Majesty,
    With a fa la la la la la la,
    Confusion to her enemies,
    With a fa la la la la la la.
    And he who would not drink her health,
    We wish him neither wit nor wealth,
    Nor yet a rope to hang himself.
    With a fal lal la la la la la la la la,
    With a fal lal la la la la la.”
