I think I've found the coolest place on earth: Tristan da Cunha. Note the place names, and the names of their creeks and bays. lonelyplanet.com has a podcast about the island. About 300 folks live on the island. It is located somewhere in the South Atlantic between South America and Africa. They have one TV channel and 2 phones and one Internet connection on the whole island. You can eat all the lobster you want for next to nothing. There is no crime and everyone has a job and is, apparently, quite well-off and happy. For other entertainment you get gail force winds for a good part of the year and the posibilty of volcanic eruption at any moment. In 1961 when the islanders were forced off by a volcanic eruption most of them returned as quickly as possible rather than live out their lives in England.
Did I ever tell you that as a kid I would fantasize about living in remote regions of the world?
