Kokomo Island

Population8.394 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 renowned for its closed borders, national health service, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.394 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, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kokomo. The average income tax rate is 25.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kokomo Islandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,850 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 220,433 Kokoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Kokomo Islandian Embarrassments, according to the latest national census as many as two-thirds of the respondents possibly consider 'violet' their favorite color, restaurant owners fear visits from government officials more than the actual food critics, and state dairy cow's milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets. 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 169,369th in the world and 9,173rd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 19.12 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
