Lilliput is a tiny island kingdom that is home to the tiny race of people known as Lilliputians and it is the rival kingdom of its fellow tiny neighbor Blefuscu, which is separated by an 800 yard wide channel. Everything on the island is of miniscule size, including its terrain, plants, animals, food, buildings and everything else, befitting its tiny residents. This island was the first location Gulliver would come across on his long voyage.
- In most media adaptions, Lilliput is the most frequently-referenced location of the places Gulliver had visited. It is also the most parodied, an example is Umi City from Team Umizoomi
- From a map of Lilliput and nearby Blefuscu, it may suggest that both of these islands are located south of Sumatra, Indonesia, on the eastern Indian Ocean. However, Swift gives their strict coordinates in relative to Van Diemen's land (Tasmania) in such a way that it would be placed within Australia, so some believe that Lilliput was intended to be placed between Australia and New Zealand.
