The Chai Kingdom[1] is one of the four kingdoms of Sarasaland. It has Oriental-style environment and background music, and along with the Pionpi enemies (whom appear to be inspired by Jiangshi) - this kingdom appears to be based off of mythical ancient China. Unlike the previous kingdoms, no enemies in the kingdom relate to the boss. The last level has Mario flying in his Sky Pop shooting down targets and both the world boss, Biokinton, as well as the game boss, Tatanga. Further enemies found here include Pakkun Flowers, Pionpis, Bullet Biffs, Goombos, Nyololins, Pompon Flowers, Chikakos, Chickens, Genkotsu, and Roketons.

"Chai" can be a Chinese name and surname, and also a type of tea that originated in India.
