Kinnimoore was an island nation, a small but independent Grand Duchy. Hidden from the Muggle world, it was also isolated from most of the Wizarding World as well. Kinnimoore was home to a proud group of people, with strong, unique traditions.

History

Geography

Kinnimoore was four by five miles wide, and was located off the western coast of Scotland, several miles outside the mouth of the Firth of Lorn. It was once almost entirely forested, but now, at the time of 2007, only three square miles of woodland remained. The rest had been converted for mainly agricultural use. The people of Kinnimoore were very protective of their forest, and wished to see it conserved. Trees were not cut down without careful deliberation.

A notable geographic feature of the Isle of Kinnimoore was Trim Harbor. The Harbor was the only safe anchorage provided by the Kinnimoore coast. Trim Harbor was the home port of Kinnimoore's small fleet of fishing vessels. Since water transportation was the primary way on or off the Isle, Trim Harbor also played host to various tranpsort vessels.

Transportation

As Kinnimoore only had an area of twenty square miles, most travel on Kinnimoore was by horse, bicycle, carriage, or broomstick. Automobiles were outlawed in 1950, after a catastrophic accident involving a car enchanted to fly that was brought to the island.

No fireplace on Kinnimoore was connected to a Floo network, so all transport on or off the island had to be by other means. The most common way on or off Kinnimoore was by booking passage on the KTV Pride, a schooner that berthed in Kinnimoore's Trim Harbor. Other populars means of reaching Kinnimoore were by broom, flying carpet, or apparation. Any flying cars were impounded from their owners upon reaching the Isle.

Government

Kinnimoore was a sovereign state, headed by a Grand Duke or Duchess. Kinnimoore had no written constitution, but did have a tiny parliament, the twelve members of which had been elected by the citizens. The twelve Lords of Parliament selected one of their own to serve as the Prime Minister, the head of government. Traditionally, the Prime Minister held the title of Baron of Kinnimoore. Excluding the Prime Minister, each of the Lords of Parliament headed a Ministry of Parliament. The functions and personnel of the government of Kinnimoore were for the most part divided among the eleven Ministries.

Economy

Kinnimoore was mostly isolated from the rest of the world, and did not trade very much with other nations. Despite having access to modern technology, the citizens of Kinnimoore shunned many modern conveniences, preferring a mostly pre-industrial way of life.

Luxuy items were imported to Kinnimoore, but all the staples of life are produced on the island. Kinnimoore's primary export was the Lightning Rod, a very expensive racing broom model.

Demographics

In 2007, the population of Kinnimoore was 484. Kinnimoore has an entirely magical population, about one in every 10,000 births is a squib. Squibs were not exiled outrightly, but most did eventually leave Kinnimoore after reaching adulthood to find a place in Muggle society.

Education

Children recieved a 12 year education at the Royal Academy of Kinnimoore, normally starting around the age of 6. They were taught not only magical theory and technique, but were educated in mathematics, the sciences, the arts, and humanities.
