Aloha and welcome to paradise!
One province. Only 103,000 people, or about 25,000 POPs -- one of the lowest populations of any nation in the world.
Uncivilized. No techs. No chance of techs. With no techs and no other provinces, there is nothing to trade to anyone for anything.
As an island, Hawaii has no borders with anyone, so no possibility to declare war on anyone as an uncivilized nation.
Hawaii has a disastrously bad economy. The only source of income is a fishery with a rating of 1.5 -- far less than the 5.0 fisheries in more fertile parts of the world. And fish is worth very little as it is.
Daily gross national income (before any expenses) runs at about 0.3-0.4/day, with all expenses minimized, even with full tariffs after the initial pop cash reserves run down. This is almost the bottom of the barrel for a national economy.
Hawaii is certainly one of the most difficult nations to play successfully Victoria, if not the hardest. Most small land-based minors have the advantage of far greater population, better economies, and the availability of enemies to attack.
Full disclosure: This game is played with two minor modifications. First, the major conservative and liberal parties have been set to positions consistent with my personal philosophy: laissez-faire/protectionism/pluralism/full_citizenship/anti-military. Second, since even uncivilized African nations and many Asian uncivs receive leaders, Hawaii will receive three leaders with random positive traits. No other modifications or changes.
Here on the island, things move slowly. People have a different view about time. The Chronicles of the Big Kahunas of Hawaii -- transmitted by the oral traditions of the elders -- record the, um, spectacular accomplishments and rapid growth of Hawaii during the first fourteen years of the reign of Falconhurst:
While the political, military, industrial, and technological achievements of these years can be summed up in a simple word -- "nil" -- the years have been quite eventful. Although Hawaii in the past has been viewed as a peaceful nation, these years have seen four random political assassinations, costing the nation a total of 400£ and 20 prestige points (is the Italian mafia trying to corner the pineapple trade?). There have been socialist demogogues, inciting the clerks and capitalists of Hawaii to militancy, in spite of the fact that Hawaii has no clerks nor capitalists. There have been other others who have caused unrest among the fishermen of the isles with stories of higher wages in Japan and America. Perhaps if Hawaii is lucky, it might perhaps convince one of these other powers to annex it in order to have indoor plumbing installed before the start of the third millennium.
This is no ordinary AAR of Hawaii. This is an AAR of Hawaii, one of the most if not the most pathetic nation in the world of Victoria, where this already disadvantaged nation is subjected to almost unbelievably bad luck.
Sit back, put on your Hula skirt, snack on some pork-roasted pineapple, and prepare to be bored out of your mind.
