The Holy Land Mariejois is the capital of the World Government and functions as the primary path which individuals seeking to enter the other, far more tumultuous and dangerous side of the Grand Line, the New World, pass through. This route is open only to persons within the jurisdiction of the law; in other words, Marines and World Government agents. This elegant capital furthermore serves as the headquarters of the World Goverment, the main governing body of the One Piece world. Mariejois’ significance and unrivaled importance is also illustrated by the fact that the Reverie meets here on a regular basis in order to discuss current international events and propose and implement solutions.
The Holy Land of Mariejois shows a very strong resemblance to the Château de Chambord, located in France. It is one of the world’s most recognizable châteaux because of its distinct French Renaissance architecture which was never completed. It was constructed by King François I.
