Penguin Village (ペンギン村) is a rural town on Gengoro Island. It is the main setting to Dr. Slump (Akira Toriyama's previous series before Dragon Ball). Goku chased General Blue here when Blue was escaping with Dragon Balls. Goku also met Arale Norimaki, who helped him defeat Blue and get his Dragon Balls back.
Penguin Village is shown to be more unique than other towns in Dragon World. The people of Penguin Village are unaware of Capsules, but are aware of the appearance and existence of the Red Ribbon Army. Despite being a very obscured town it is the most diverse, with one of the highest extraterrestrial populations on the planet. The school system is also behind from the rest of the world, such as the middle school education in Penguin Village being the equivalent to other regions Elementary School education. Schools in Penguin Village also practice corporal punishment which allows teachers to spank kids who are not behaving (this mostly only happens to Akane Kimidori). Many of the people in Penguin Village are shown to celebrate a lot of Japanese traditions as well. Almost everyone in Penguin Village is shown to break the fourth wall, even in Dragon Ball.
