Kokomo Island

Population8.425 billion

LeaderKing Koko B Ware


The Kingdom of Kokomo Island is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Koko B Ware with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, digital currency, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.425 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 relatively small, corrupt 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 26.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kokomo Islandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,875 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 a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 222,670 Kokoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The military will start wars with other nations on a lark, vacationing Kokomo Islandians expect to be treated as royalty, protestors are soaking piles of Kokoes in blood to make a point about government incomes, and people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy. 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 157,742nd in the world and 8,670th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 43.04 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
