Ile d’Etoile Nord

Jun - 30 2014 | By

(Also known as North Star Island)

A large island farther North than most of the others. The Eastern half of the island is almost entirely French-speaking and consists mostly of small farming villages. The inhabitants of the Western half speak mostly English, but there are small populations of French-speaking communities. The Eastern villages are somewhat larger and more modern with less farming and more trading.

Although it is becoming less common there is a history of slavery on the island. Criminals, unless they are too dangerous, are usually sentenced to slavery instead of imprisonment. Unfortunately there have been instances of innocent people being sold as slaves, most commonly when parents sell their own children claiming they have committed a crime of some sort. Slavery on the Western half of the island still occurs, but is less common.
