* In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe FireEmblem: Blazing Sword]]'', there was a village named Arcadia where humans and dragons lived in peace (when everywhere else, dragons were made extinct by humans). However, its giant libraries were also the place where the BigBad obtained his ability to drain and consume LifeEnergy.
* Ironically, Arcadia in Halo Wars and the rest of the [[Franchise/{{Halo}} Halo Universe]] is nothing like this.
** Not when we actually see it, anyway. When it's first mentioned, Serina comments that Arcadia is a resort planet.

* In the 2013 novel ''Literature/CrossAndPoppy,'' the countryside is simply ''better'', even if Death can (and often does) say, "et ego". Such that the InUniverse celebrities have bought country houses when they could. After all, there are no chalk-streams in {{UsefulNotes/London}}, they won't let the Duke shoot journalists and politicians on the wing, and as for [[TheGreatHunt huntin', damn it all]]….

-->''Will your worship be able to bear, out in the fields, the heats of summer, and the chills of winter, and the howling of the wolves? Not you; for that's a life and a business for hardy men, bred and seasoned to such work almost from the time they were in swaddling-clothes.

* In ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'', this seems to be the overall theme of the planet Naboo. It is a very peaceful place, and the majority of the planetary surface seems to consist of lovely cities, beautiful meadows full of alien livestock, rivers and waterfalls, and lush wetland areas teeming with diverse wildlife.


Added DiffLines:

** Equestria as a whole very much this. The occasional monster rampage aside, it’s a peaceful, pastoral nation dotted with pleasant towns in a landscape of farmland and lush nature where candy-colored ponies live in harmony with every sort of magical creature, friendship rules supreme, and the weather is managed on demand by {{Pegasus}} weather teams and the night and day cycle by the [[WingedUnicorn alicorn]] princesses for the benefit of all.

* On the less-settled end of the spectrum is Merlin1998: Merlin and Arthur's childhood homes, and the dream-like sanctuary created [[spoiler:for Nimue and Merlin by Mab]] appear to be the forest version of this - a small cottage with friendly animals all around and only occasional human occupants, allowing a simple, peaceful life at home with nature.
