ROYALS. Did you think royalty was dead? There are still many countries with constitutional monarchies, although many of them are "figure heads".

Here is a list:
Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Canada, Grenada, Jamaica, New Zealand, Papua, Solomon Islands, St. Kitts-Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Tuvalu, U.K., Samoa, Lesotho, Malaysia, Swaziland, Tonga, Bahrain, Belgium, Bhutan, Cambodia, Denmark, Japan, Jordan, Kuwait, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, Morocco, Nepal, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, and the Netherlands.

Can you image being king of Tonga? Talk about being a big fish in a small pond. Actually, the royal family there has something to be proud of. When missionaries came to the island, the king converted and established the "Free Church of Tonga".

I think being king of Antigua might be nice. You could build you castle on the beach. Then, when you said you got royally sunburned, you would be doubly accurate.
