* In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'', the residents of the Kingdom of East Mikado really do believe that there isn't anything outside--the thought never once occurs to anyone. They are so convinced East Mikado contains the entirety of humanity that a major character finds a novel set in France and immediately assumes it's a fictional country. It's not that they're super-ignorant: [[spoiler:The Archangels, led by Gabriel, are deliberately subtly influencing the thoughts of the people of East Mikado in this way, treating the place much like a human ant farm.]]

* E.M. Forster's short story "The Machine Stops" features an underground city. There the inhabitants have forgotten what the surface world is like to the point of believing it is a lifeless, barren world. Believing their artificial environment is the only solace from a dead world, the protagonist of the story ends up finding otherwise with disastrous results.

* In an in-Verse example, in the ''VideoGame/MysteryCaseFiles'' game ''Return to Ravenhearst'', there's a map on the wall of Gwendolyn and Charlotte's home-schooling classroom that depicts nothing but an outline of England and Wales, with "Unknown" scrawled on the vague, fading-out edges of Scotland, Ireland, and the French coast. The only settlement on the map is Blackmoor, nearest town to the Ravenhearst estate.

* Most people have the stereotype that all of New York IS Manhattan and/or New York City, despite NYC being only a very small geographical portion of the state, with such different politics, economy, ecology, attitude, and most other aspects of life that many upstaters wish the two could become separate states.

* Most people have the stereotype that all of New York IS Manhattan and/or New York City, despite NYC being only a very small geographical portion of the state, with such different politics, economy, ecology, attitude, and most other aspects of life that many upstaters wish the two could become separate states. The idea of NYC being separate from the rest of the state came to a head during the U.S. Civil War. Democratic Mayor Fernando Wood proposed that New York City should become a sovereign city-state called " Free City of Tri-Insula" and live off the import tariffs. The idea was too radical for even the time but the city remained against the war and the draft, leading to the bloody New York Draft Riots.
