It might as well have figured in a fairy tale.

Pakistan

It was treated very sympathetically in last week's "Doctor Who" episode.

Saint Kitts and Nevis

1) The islands are really fertile and have beautiful waters.

2) Although they have senators, they have a unicameral government.  Their senators don't sit in an upper house but sit in the Assembly with everyone else.

3) They also speak a type of creole distinct from the others in the region.

Ἦχος Πρῶτος

Τέχνη μελουργός, σούς ἀγασθεῖσα κρότους
Πρώτην νέμει σοὶ τάξιν, ὦ τῆς ἀξίας
Ἦχος ὁ πρῶτος μουσική κληθείς τέχνη
Πρῶτος παρ'ἡμῶν εὐλογείσθω τοῖς λόγοις.
Τὰ πρῶτα πρῶτε τῶν καλῶν λαχῶν φέρεις
Πρωτεῖα νίκης πανταχοῦ πάντων ἔχεις.
