Kokomo Island

Population9.103 billion

LeaderKing Koko B Ware


The Kingdom of Kokomo Island is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Koko B Ware with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.103 billion Kokomo Islandians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kokomo. The average income tax rate is 34.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kokomo Islandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,208 trillion Kokoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 242,605 Kokoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", and modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes. Crime is totally unknown. Kokomo Island's national animal is the Pug, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kokothism.

Kokomo Island is ranked 20,904th in the world and 928th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 97.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
