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, and also show the same fear of them as the rest of the world. They are considered to be well behind the rest of the world, which led General Blue to speculate that he would need only one tank to completely take over the town in a single day, as well as potentially being viewed as a god by the populace.[1] 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). Despite being a very obscured town, it is the most diverse with one of the highest extraterrestrial populations on the planet. Also, 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. It also featured particularly unusual geography, namely living mountains.
