Liberum veto was fine for a long time. It wasn't abused.

The Pitcairn Islands, a British Overseas Territory in Oceania with a population of 48, was once subject to a sexual assault trial in 2004 that accounted for a third of the male population - including the Mayor at the time.

A prison was created on the island and the men were convicted until 2010 - by that time the NEW mayor faced charges for possessing child pornography on his computer.

As a result, children under the age of 16 must apply for an "entry clearance application" and FCO staff based on Pitcairn are not permitted to take their children with them.

For France, it is literally part of the Country which is abroad. They use the Euro, have the same licence plates and have representatives in their government like a European France region would have.

With the UK, they are called Overseas Territories. They're a mixed bunch in terms of how much like the UK they are. They usually have their own governments without a representative in Westminster. Sometimes, they will have their own licence plates and have their own currencies (which are usually pegged to the pound sterling)
