Peijin (ペイジン, Peijin; also Peijing in the anime)[note 1] is the capital city of the Republic of East Gorteau, located on the Southeastern end of the country. Ming Jol-ik, Supreme Leader of the country, lives in a palace just outside of the city. After the Chimera Ants covertly seize power of the country, Neferpitou manipulates Ming Jol-ik's body to have the nation's citizens all assemble in Peijin.
- Its name seems to be a portmanteau of Beijing and Peking, which is an alternate romanization to Beijing.
- The [Hunter] hideout, where Kite's body was kept, is based on the real-life Neuschwanstein Castle—a famous 19th-century palace in southwest Bavaria, Germany, popular as tourist destination.
