cockaigne (ko-KAYN)

noun: An imaginary land of luxury and idleness.

Etymology
From Middle French pais de cocaigne (land of plenty), from Middle Low German kokenje, diminutive of koke (cake). Cockaigne was a fabled place of ease and luxury, a land overflowing with milk and honey where food fell into your mouth by itself. It was an imaginary place a medieval peasant could aspire to, a place away from the harsh reality of life.

Usage
"This was a land of Cockaigne, a place of total self-indulgent enchantment where I sat alone for hours contemplating." — Christopher Moore; Broad Horizons; The Press (Christchurch, New Zealand); Jan 4, 1999.
