From the Super Mario Wiki
Cape Codswallop is the first area in the Game Boy and Game Boy Color game, Donkey Kong Land III. Located in the Northern Kremisphere, to the east of the Primate Plains, it replaces Lake Orangatanga as the first world in the game. This area is ruled by Barbos, the giant Lurchin. The name "Cape Codswallop" is a spoof of Cape Cod.
Cape Codswallop is a small peninsula surrounded by large bodies of water, probably inland seas, which are connected by two rivers: the northern one powers a large water-mill, while the southern one is known as the Koco Channel. This region seems to have a temperate climate, though some coastal areas appear to have a mediterranean climate. Several levels take place on the various boardwalks and wharves, such as Red Wharf and Ford Knocks.
