It means islandmonkeys. Originally the meaning for people who think their country is an island of well-being and everything else around it, is dogshit.

Well as America is not an island it wouldn,t be a very good name for the yanks!

It is in fact a German insulting nickname for Brits! I was an expat in Germany for a couple of years.
