In the middle of Indonesia, of course. After becoming independent from Indonesia, the new island nation of Java was immediately embroiled in a copyright battle with Sun Microsystems over their name, which they lost.
To avoid confusion with Colombia's new name ("Coffee--Honest" ) they chose to go with "Joe."
The colony on the Earth's star is called "Soland" for similar reasons (and because it sounds like "Poland," and the colonists went there at night to avoid the heat...).
