It might as well have figured in a fairy tale.

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.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
