or simply "atoll"? 

as in:

"you flaming ATOLL! I can't capture a single piece!"?

(I didn't realize atoll effectively describes an ex-island -- even
before some genius decides to test nukes on it -- until this month,
when I got completely sucked into wikipedia trying to understand the
name of this sculpture: 
I ended up in Pitcairn, and their recent trials. Every resident of
pitcairn is listed in their directory, with photo, by first names.
