Koroturaga is the fourth island settlement of Itokani, located in the Northern Ocean in the region of Senikau. The island was built by McYoshi26, the mayor of Itokani. Construction of the island began on July 2, 2020, and was completed on August 1, 2020.

Koroturaga is notable for being the capital of Itokani and its main hub for government and foreign relations.


The embassies surrounding Lake Yalodina

After the completion of Vinataka, the islands of Koroturaga and Waitui were claimed on May 13, 2020. In the planning of the town, the island was originally planned to be named Yanuyanu.

The trees on the island were cleared on July 2, 2020. The island completed terraforming and grass painting work on July 12, 2020. Following the groundwork, building shapes and exteriors were first constructed using spruce planks as the main walls with jungle slabs and planks for roofing and flooring. Tall palm trees were placed on the islands as the structures were being built. The exteriors of the main buildings on the island were completed on July 23, 2020.

Following the completion of the exteriors, sparse grass blocks were placed around the island to mark the walking paths. The Icoi Lighthouse was placed alongside a man-made lake in the southern part of the island for Sipi Park. Three angel statues were placed on the island after the completion of Sipi Park.

On July 26, 2020, buildings began being furnished. On July 29, 2020, buildings were fully furnished and given out to other cities for embassies and other government services. The permanent Itokani Town Hall was also completed on that day.

All 85 embassies were furnished on August 1, 2020. The island was declared completed on August 1, 2020, when the bridge connecting to Waitui was completed.


Sipi Park at the southern tip of the island

The island is named after the Fijian word for 'capital'. A few locations on the island are named after Fijian words. Icoi Lighthouse is named after the Fijian word for 'cocoa'. Sipi Park is named after the Fijian word for 'sheep', named after the native brown sheep that live on the island. Lake Yalodina, the largest lake on the island, is named after the Fijian word for 'faithful'. The name was taken from its usage in a tribe name in Survivor: Senikau. Wavu Bridge is named after the Fijian word for 'bridge'.

A number of the places and things on the island are musical references. The two brown sheep on the island, Hakura and Glynne, are named after two people related to the Clean Bandit song "Rather Be": Hakura Abe and Jess Glynne. Hakura Abe is the actress that stars in the music video for the song. Jess Glynne is the featured vocalist on the song. The island's three angels are numbered nineteenth, twenty-first, and twenty-fifth, referring to Adele's first three studio albums 19, 21, and 25. The two conference rooms in the Itokani Town Hall, the Okosita Conference Room and the Edua Conference Room, were named after the Fijian words for 'the one' and 'August', referencing two songs on Taylor Swift's album folklore.

The statue at the northeasternmost point of the island has the Captain Philip Keoghan statue, named after the host of the real-life version of the reality game show series The Amazing Race.


Koroturaga is located in the Northern Ocean. It is the southwestern island group in the region of Senikau. The island is nearby the Wananavu Reef and is surrounded on all sides by a deep lukewarm ocean biome.

In relation to other settlements, the closest settlement is Waitui, which was claimed at the same time and is connected by a bridge in the southern portion of the island.

The Twenty-Fifth Angel, representing love

Koroturaga has a total of 24 buildings, not counting the bathroom facilities, with 85 embassies. All of the buildings are for embassies and other government buildings. The island acts as the island chain's capital and also houses the city's town hall.

The island incorporates a focus on nature with the government buildings on the island. Sipi Park is a public area on the southernmost portion of the island that serves as a place for the general public to picnic and relax. The largest lake on the island is Lake Yalodina, which is full of cod like other bodies of water on the island.

The island has three angel statues: The Nineteenth Angel (representing unity), The Twenty-First Angel (representing peace), and The Twenty-Fifth Angel (representing love). The angels are facing outwards toward the sea to act as protectors of the island. The angel statues are based on the Roman goddess Victoria seen atop the Siegessäule, also known as the Berlin Victory Monument, in Berlin, Germany. It was originally built for the "Building Up in Berlin" challenge in Big Brother 5.

Two brown sheep, Hakura and Glynne, naturally spawned on the island. They have their own fenced-off area on the southern portion of the island.
