The Protectorate of Giokto (Giokton: Gio̍k-tó Pó-kok) is an Andallan protectorate located north of the Little Flauton twin islands of Phalon and Nolaf. Its territory encompasses the island of Giokto and the Goa Archipelago off the northwest coast of Giokto.

Etymology

The name "Giokto" (Giokton: 玉島; Pheng-im: Gio̍k-tó; literally "Jade Island") is derived from the name of its main island, which was named after the mountain in its center, Gioksua (Giokton: 玉山; Pheng-im: Gio̍k-soa; literally "Jade Mountain"). It is unknown as to when Gioktons began referring to the mountain as "Gioksoa"; the earliest known writings containing the name date back to 800 BCE during the Tsòa Dynasty.[1]
