Nu America was named by Arthur Marxmason, who discovered the island not far from the fictional Pyramid Island. Marxmason was an American explorer and named the island after his homeland. The big difference between the two islands was that Nu America was uninhabited, whereas Pyramid Island has a population of about 2,000. No one, not even Marxmason, has claimed ownership of Nu America yet. It appears this previously unknown island has the capacity for about 200 individuals to live comfortably.
Questions are beginning to surface as to whether or not the officials who run Pyramid Island should get to decide what happens to Nu America. Will it remain uninhabited or will lucky investors get to buy property on the island? Another big question is whether or not Nu America will have its own government or will it be part of Pyramid Island?
