In the Spring of 2108, Australian Defence Minister Aub Ryman resigns from his post, committed to an alternative system for determining the sovereignty of nations that would end warfare forever. In order to lead this transformation he must first marry Queen Katie of Kamchatka, whose many fans throughout the world have given her the power to approve or remove governments to achieve her objectives under a system known as The New Game. Before he can assume his role as King, however, The Island Prince must first convince The Queen's Ministers and the prestigious Kamchatka Parliament that he is indeed the right choice. On the ice, and with the world's eyes upon them, they express their love for each other and reinforce their message for world peace.

The Island Prince Extract

A Kamchatskiy Silver Shadow limousine conveyed him swiftly through Perth’s northern suburbs to the airport. “Good luck Prince Regent,” said the chauffeur as he alighted at the terminal building, his suitcase now in his hand. A pathway had been planned for him to by-pass airport security before boarding the supersonic plane otherwise known as the Hebden Three, that would convey him to his Atlantic destination. This, however, did not stop two less informed security officials from approaching him. “Excuse me sir,” one of them said to him, “You cannot go there. There are no flights from gate six today. I’m afraid you must return to airport security at once.” It was just as well, therefore, that he was able to remove from his jacket the small case that his bride-to-be had given to him a year before. He opened it and flashed the bright gold on blue hologram of Saturn at the guards. It was so bright that it almost dazzled them, but, more importantly even these two ill-informed guards, who had somehow managed to miss that this sole passenger was scheduled to proceed to gate six without hindrance, knew without hesitation that the authority of this badge was not in question. It could only belong to one person. “I’m so sorry. This way Your Royal Highness,” replied one of the guards, who then directed him along a short deserted passageway to the awaiting plane, which was parked discreetly by gate six. The plane was one of a fleet of thirty, but this one was special as it was owned by the girl that he was soon to marry, twenty-three-year-old Queen Katie of Kamchatka. It was sky blue and its tail bore the same Saturnian logo as his hologram badge. Inside it was much the same as the other first-class only Hebden Threes, only with a few more luxuries, as one might expect of a royal jet. As the aircraft took off it followed a north-westerly path before reaching supersonic speed some one hundred miles northwest of Perth. From there it followed a more westerly trajectory as it headed towards South Africa before following the west African coastline northwards towards its final destination, The Island of Dreams, a small eightmile-long island to the north of the Azores, yet a place that had recently gained enormous worldwide significance. On The Island, from her sanctuary of The Great Dome, the slim, dark haired forty-one-year old Prime Minister Joanie Carmichael prepared to inform The Queen that her Prince would be touching down on The Islands beach runway, two miles northwest of The Town, shortly after two o’clock local time. The royal train, hauled by the aptly named steam locomotive Prince, would then bring her from her Royal Palace to meet him. On board the aircraft the petite Korean hostess Su Lin greeted him first with a commemorative bottle of Prince Regent lager, on the label of which was an imprint of his face, and then with a document, which he scrutinised carefully. He noted that the form had the effect of transferring ownership of the aircraft from The Queen to himself. “What if I don’t want to own the plane?” he asked. “Then too bad. Queen will transfer it to you anyway,” replied Su Lin. “So the form is meaningless?” “No. Form very important. It show Queen that you respect her wishes.” “I see. Then I suppose I had better sign it.”
