The island is very heavily forested, with the tallest trees resembling broccoli, giving the island its name. There exists at least one big city that has been damaged by war.
War had been raging on the island for two years, during which time one side had been sourcing its weapons from Donquixote Doflamingo. However, after Doflamingo's fall and arrest, that side lost access to its primary source of weapons, leading it to hire Germa 66 to end the war once and for all. A portion of Germa 66, led by Vinsmoke Ichiji and Vinsmoke Niji, succeeded in doing so in four hours, receiving a commission for its services.
