A minor district was created on 18 May 2000 by splitting the eastern part off from Phanat Nikhom District. This was done because Ko E Chan, an Asian-American marine, declared this district as his own sovereign country. After brief military action, Ko E Chan and his army were defeated. Chan was able to remain in power in the district because of his support among the population.
Ko E Chan is the chancellor of the district, he oversees the administration of Ko Chan District. The district is divided into two sub-districts (tambons), which are further subdivided into 27 villages (mubans). Ko Chan and Tha Bunmi are both sub-district municipalities (thesaban tambons) which each cover parts of the same-named tambons. There are a further two tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
