The Ponderosa Islands
"The Island of Dogs"
-The Island's Neighbors/History-
-The Island's Neighbors-
One of the Island's neighbors is the Xinera
Islands. We like to call it the Island of the forest. There is a peace between the Xinera
Islands and the Ponderosa Islands, thanks to Lily Lake, the old Governor of The Ponderosa Islands. She walked through one of the portals created by the Xinera
Islands to make peace with June May, the governor of the Xinera
Islands. This ended the Great War of 1889, which caused 2,086 casualties. There have never been any more wars between the two islands since.
Another neighbor of Ponderosa is Japan. Japan was one of the only civilizations near Ponderosa still alive and human. We have peace with Japan as well as Xinera. We are able to trade Japan the goods they need for what we need.

-How Goods are Imported/Exported-
Most Common Natural Disaster
The Ponderosa Islands have an upper class, two middle classes, and a lower class. In the upper class, there are the Governors and a Council. They are the overall leaders and help create laws and make sure that they aren't bad/weird ones like, 'ban fast food' and 'no more education'.
The two Middle Classes are the Warriors and the Inventors/Explorers. The Warriors are specialized to help protect Ponderosa and all the residents within. The Inventors are specialists who invent new solutions for medical issues and other problems that would affect the economy.
The explorers help look for plants and animals that can help with medical issues, look for food that is safe for the residents to eat/live on,and do anything else that the governor wants them to search for and help with.
Finally, the lower class consists of poor citizens/residents of the Island. They must obey the new laws as work in assigned jobs.
-Religion & Tradition-
Ponderosa celebrates/accepts all religions/beliefs. Example: We celebrate Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc. Some of our traditions go along with the religions like on Christmas Eve night, the whole town gets together to light the 35ft tree. On October 31st , the whole town gets together and has a big party.
(All residents know that they have a choice to come.)
