帝都 (dì dū): imperial capital
Beijing. Often contrasted with the Demon Capital (魔都 mó dū), i.e. Shanghai.
The use of “imperial capital” to mean Beijing has increased as Internet users have come to rely more and more on code words, homonyms, and creatively indirect references to avoid and circumvent censorship.
