Someone asked on this site before where they should move and I told them Guam. Yes, Guam is a Commonwealth but you can get off the radar very easy if you want to. I did it for 3 years and I would consider it again after I have enough money saved to retire. It's not a place to educate a child though unless you have the ability to homeschool.
Which island are you on? I've been to Saipan, Rota, Palua, and my favorite was Pohnpei--great diving without the tourism.
