There are two places that go by the name Pingelap: Pingelap Island on Jaluit Atoll, or Sapwuaphik, an outer island of Pohnpei State, Federated States of Micronesia, about 600 miles west of Jaluit. However, as the ending of the story clearly indicates, the Pingelap mentioned here refers to the atoll in FSM and not to Pingelap Island (for the story refer to Pingelap Island on Jaluit Atoll see "The Counterfeit Spouse").
