New Country? The Republic of Hau Pakumoto

Over in French Polynesia the islanders of Moorea are not happy and want to branch out and go it alone. If they succeed the name of their new country will be Hau Pakumoto and it certainly looks idyllic. It seems they are all set to go - with a President and Cabinet already mooted and ready to go. The reason for all this is that they are tired of high prices and even higher unemployment. One of their solutions to this problem will be to hire 150 new firefighters. Who can possibly say?!
