Umbrella Island is a little aerial domain, that floats smoothly and soundlessly through the sky on a giant umbrella.
The island is lush and tropical, and supports a population of 769 people, 46 cows, 37 sheep, 22 horses, and 13 dogs, plus a herd of goats and a flock of Umbrella birds (numbers unspecified). The human inhabitants braid their hair and beards in extravagant styles, and braid the tails and manes of their animals as well. Each resident carries an umbrella or parasol at all times, as a makeshift parachute in case the island tips. The animals are similarly equipped.
Originally, The place was a normal island, located in the Nonestic Ocean 70 leagues off the coast of Ev. Silkworm breeding and silkmaking brought prosperity to the inhabitants. When King Sizzeroo developed a yen for travel, his wizard Waddy used a combination of magic and mechanics to convert the island to a flying domain. The Umbrellians' travels have even taken them "into the realms of Reality on the other side of the rainbow...."
