This sometimes-island-sometimes-peninsula nation is mostly a mash-up of Florida and Puerto Rico.
It was almost entirely conceived by Erik, the player behind the character Erik Perez, to be Mr. Perez’s homeland.
Erik (the player) is proudly Puerto Rican. Much of what exists in Plantain could be seen as stereotypical to the point of racism if a non-Puerto Rican devised it, but Crash, not being Puerto Rican himself, had no desire to tell Erik (the player) what he could or could not do with his character’s backstory.
When playing NPCs from Plantain, Crash refuses to attempt the accents, though.
