Maybe. I mean a common backstory is that the Mario Bros. were originally from Brooklyn, Earth and on the job they found a warp pipe to the Mushroom Kingdom where they decided to stay. Sex maybe a foreign concept to them. Kinda like the movie Pleasentville. It could be possible there is some sort of suppression field throughout the world of the Mushroom Kingdom forcing storks to be the only means of reproduction for the human residents that live there.

But after seeing New Donk City and the fact Pauline is the mayor, I'm starting to think Mario and Luigi are actually from New Donk City and that NDC is on the same world as the Mushroom Kingdom, meaning the same laws apply there.

And ever since the introduction of the Super Crown, some fans theories that the mushroom people are actually an eusocial race similar to bees. Princess Peach was perhaps once a Toadette and was given the Super Crown because she was chosen to rule over them. And if she is no longer fit to rule a new toadette will take her place.

Seeing how happy-go-lucky and cheerful Mario is...
It's making more sense if he's from New Donk City.
Especially we know people of that town celebrate his returns in Mario Odyssey.

If he's from real human world like New York, I don't think he will be that cheerful.
May be a bit serious.. or darker... or something like this...

Saudi Arabia Now Owns 5% of Nintendo: Making the Country the 5th Biggest Shareholder



Quote
This move by Saudi Arabia reflects the county’s history of previous investments in video game companies over the last couple years. In 2020, Saudi Arabia had purchased 33% of shares for the King of Fighters series developer, SNK, with the intention of becoming majority shareholder by eventually owning 51%. Now, Saudi Arabia owns an astonishing 96% stake in the Japanese-based company.
Additionally, earlier this year, Saudi Arabia acquired 5% ownership of both Capcom, Street Fighter and Resident Evil series developer, and Nexon, totaling to a $1 billion investment.
Lastly, Saudi Arabia had also invested over $3 billion into American video game companies, such as Activision, EA, and Take-Two Interactive, in February of last year.

I always imagined Sarasaland being somewhat middle-eastern.... despite the fact it consist of just four kingdoms, two of them based of ancient Egypt and China so I'm obviously well off.
