The setting of my WIP is an island with a population of ~10,000. I would like to showcase the effects this has on the story, such as fewer secondary characters, less traffic, less settlements etcetera. My main query is: what other impacts would a low population have? I haven't finalised the details, but let's just say that the island community is fairly isolated from the outside world with minimal ferrying and air travel. I know there would be economic effects, but what exactly? Would it be benefitted or would the local markets be struggling? I have researched this somewhat already, but would appreciate more suggestions/ideas to help me make the most of this plot point. Thanks.
