The Sultanate of Coconut Isle is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Gogoch V with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, enslaved workforce, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 12.134 billion Fruity Tooties are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Coconut Islean economy, worth 337 trillion Coconuts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 27,790 Coconuts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Women who display their ankles are shunned by society, conscientious objectors are hanged as traitors, Coconut Isle's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, and an underground movement of cigarette smokers has sprung up in response to a government ban. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Coconut Isle's national animal is the Coconut Tree, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of the Holy Margaret.

Coconut Isle is ranked 47,586th in the world and 27th in Esportiva for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,938.15 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
