As a rule, Wikivoyage doesn't do joke articles. We aim to be a serious travel guide full of useful information. Articles for non-existent, unvisitable places and inside jokes in articles may confuse travellers and just don't help to fulfill our goals.

That said, once a year we permit ourselves to go a little crazy and post up an April Fools' destination. Note that all such articles are clearly tagged with {{Joke}}, like this:

Joke articles should not be linked into from the main travel article namespace.

Once the April Fools' Day event is over, the article is moved to a subpage of this page.
