Economy and Trade

Islonia's economy is underpinned by its great harbour which makes the island a focus of regional trade, and its wealth of natural piscatorial resources. Over the years the national government has delivered a well managed and stable economy, however the small size of the country results in a balance of payments that leans heavily on imported goods.
