The name of Seioubo is quoted from the legend of China.
By the way…
Which is your hip?

Map of the original 86 area codes colour-coded by ease of dialing on a rotary phone
In 1947, area codes were assigned to municipalities based on their anticipated incoming call volume. Cities like New York (212, 2+1+2=five pulses) and Chicago (312, six pulses) were given low area codes, and rural states like South Dakota got 605 (6+10+5 = 21); twenty-one pulses was the maximum allowed under the scheme (though the famous 900 area code required twenty-nine).
At the time, Newfoundland, Hawaii and Alaska were not connected to the system. Newfoundland joined Canada (and the system) in 1949 and joined area code 902. Alaska was assigned 907, and Hawaii 808, in 1957. Additionally, the islands in Hudson Bay, as part of the Northwest Territories, were nominally in area code 403 but did not receive telephone service until the 1970s (at which point they were incorporated into area code 819, shared with western Quebec after 514 was split.)
