** Much of UsefulNotes/{{Pennsylvania}} is like this, which has been cemented by an old joke: "You have UsefulNotes/{{Philadelphia}} on one side, UsefulNotes/{{Pittsburgh}} on the other, and [[DeepSouth Alabama]] with winters in between." Huge swathes of incredibly fertile farmland (officially called the Piedmont region) are also occupied by large populations of the Old Order {{Amish}} and Mennonites, two groups that are often considered in North American culture to personify the simple lifestyles of yesteryear.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/MartinFierro'': At the second song, Fierro declares his former life as a rancher as this: All the hard work the [[{{Gaucho}} gauchos]] made seemed to be a party, everyone was happy after work, even the poorest gaucho had hope in the future , the CattleBaron respected them, and there was food in abundance for all. At the third song, Fierro implies this is full of NostalgiaFilter because he is now an {{Outlaw}} who only can remember his lost old life.

** The Shir. The characters even make a point of not even letting the hobbits know Gondor and Rohan are duking it out against {{Mordor}}. On the other hand, the hobbits are also portrayed as unimaginative and parochial, which is atypical.

* In the classic ''Series/TwilightZone'' episode "A Stop at Wiloughby", the protagonist is very sick and tired of the rat race of 1960s American society. During a nap, he visits the town Wiloughby, which is this trope, as an idealized late 1800s American town. He cannot find the town on any map. When he decides to stay, he is deeply content, but [[spoiler:his body died as he was taken to Wiloughby Funeral Home]].
