Doc. 1.50. Edit

Morning Island is the second-largest department and a major cay of The British Paradise Islands overseas territory, featured in the Two Paradises fiction/fantasy realm, as devised by Jonnie Comet.

Geography and community Edit

Morning Island is the southernmost island of the five-island chain representing the principal land area and population of the territory. It is home to the primary port of entry, container-ship port, transoceanic airport, government offices and principal tourism and business locations of the territory.

Most of the island is gently-rolling hillside, especially east of the steep crest above Avon Township. Arable land is used in grazing, crops, vinting and orchards. West and south of Governor's Harbour, the centre rises sharply, forming a kind of cultural and geographical barrier between the busy commercial centres along Paradise Sound and the windy, rural south where are located the territorial military base and the international airport.

Morning Island is the territory's number-one tourist destination, having excellent accommodations at Casino and at Governor's Harbour. Aptly-named Honeymoon Beach is a favourite destination for locals and tourists alike. Whilst also a business centre, Governor's Harbour boasts many fine, world-class shops and dining establishments and is probably the most popular place in the territory for tourists 'going on the town'.

The island is also home to New London, Paradisian capital and home to many of the territorial embassies, governmental agencies and other public facilities.

RAF Paradise airbase is located adjacent to Paradise Trans-Oceanic Airport on Morning Island and is tasked with patrolling and defence of southern and eastern Pacific Ocean dependencies and other interests.
