Gengoro Island is mostly composed by grassy plains, but some hills and small lakes can also be found here.

In the Dr. Slump special chapter "Kick the Can", Senbei Norimaki is seen running all over a map of Gengoro Island searching through the other towns of Gengoro Island for Arale and Gatchan. The various locations noted on the map other than Penguin Village are: Dumbtown, Needwife, Overthere, Mountain, Land I, Bigshore, Nowheresville, Bigtown, Poop, Station, Boonyville, Fartown, Harbor, and ABC.

In Dragon Ball, after successfully escaping from the Pirate Cave, Goku pursued General Blue and they both ended up at Gengoro Island.

It is the primary setting to Akira Toriyama's first published manga, Wonder Island.

China is a large eastern nation that exists in both the real world and in Dr. Slump. It is surrounded by a great wall and one of the villages known as Plub Pah-Tui is the homeland of the Tsun family and was where the Reh Tsu Goh was built and launched from before landing in Penguin Village in Age 748. Sometime after Age 750, Tsuruten Tsun and Tsuntsunodanoteiyugo Tsun moved back here.

Plub Pah-Tui

It is possible that the Eastern continent in the Dragon Ball series is China due to its similar distance to Penguin Village on the Dragon World map as well as the locations such as Mount Paozu, Fire Mountain and the Diablo Desert having Chinese based scenery and the residents of those areas wearing Chinese clothing.
