It's not a flood. They built on an island on purpose.

On porpoise?

Is it some sort of fishing community? Crayfish catchers? Baitworm farm?

Not very scenic, and not very far from more land, so it can't be for beauty or security reasons.

Rice paddies maybe? Or raising a herd of baby Swamp Things?

Is it The Republic of Elbonia?

Edit: From Wikipedia:
Quote:
The "Tiny East European country of Elbonia." It is an extremely poor, "fourth-world" country that has abandoned Communism. Most of the nation is covered with waist-deep mud, which the residents use to build houses.

That's not quite true. Communism abandoned Elbonia.

Because it was easier than building underwater?

The closest guess so far. It IS in the Americas. Mexico.

I'm not going to do the math to convert decimal degrees to minutes/seconds, but that sounds about right.

Did you find it on your own or from the coordinates in the wiki link I posted?

I entered Mexcaltitán de Uribe into Google Earth, but that was way off. Santiago Ixcuintla was much more helpful. I didn't see the coordinates until you pointed out that they were there It's described as "off the coast", but really it's in the salt marsh somewhat inland.
