History:
1944: US soldiers from a sunken ship land on a large, deserted island. They survive for two months before being picked up. Meanwhile, an amatuer cartographer from the crew maps the island.
1969: People from multiple Pacific Islands form the Free Islands Group, in order to find land to start an ideal country that is "from the people, for the people." The leader, a retired US Navy officer from the 1944 shipwreck, who had moved to the the Solomon Islands after WWII, researched the islands and discovered that they were not claimed by any country. After the group raised 1 million dollars, they purchased ships, supplies, and building materials, and set off for the islands.
