* On ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'', it's often {{lampshade|Hanging}}d that the village the characters live in has no name. In the episode, "Unnamed Episode", it is revealed that [[spoiler:the village used to be named "Badgerville", by Jebediah Badger, Sticks' great-great-grandfather. At the end of the episode, Sticks is passed down the naming rights to the village, and names it "Hedgehog Village"]].

** ''Rugrats'' seems to suggest it could take place anywhere in the US that can receive snowfall in the winter, whereas the Chirstmas episode of ''All Grown Up'' has a snowless Christmas, which suggests that they live in a warmer part of the world. The fact that their school seems to be more or less designed for warmer weather also suggests they may be in California or some warm part of the US.

* The City at the heart of the Spirit World in ''[[TabletopGame/ProseDescriptiveQualities Dead Inside]]'' is known simply as, well, the City. It's the only form of civilization anywhere in the Spirit World, and is implied to be the collective unconscious archetype of the very concept of the city. It's extremely malleable as a result, so instead of having a firm geography you can only reach one neighborhood from another when on foot because they're conceptually related.

* The city featured in ''Film/TheMatrix'' is just "the city", because there's actually only one. Extreme wide shots in the sequels show that all of the plugged-in human population is concentrated around a single, vast megalopolis.

megalopolis - though there are {{Big Fancy House}}s for rich people five ''hundred'' miles away. For those who don't want to screw around with a map, that's a third of the width of the US.

* ''Literature/Tasakeru'' takes place in an island country with no name, referred to only as "the world". Since the island is a ClosedCircle, the inhabitants have no concepts that there's anything else beyond the sea.

* Faith Erin Hicks' graphic novel series ''The Nameless City'' is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: it's set in a city in a very strategically important position (controlling multiple trade routes), which means that every powerful empire in the region has taken turns conquering, losing, and re-conquering the city. Every time it's conquered, the conquerors rename the city, which means it's had dozens of names over the centuries, and is thus better known as just "the city."

* The titular city in Creator/HPLovecraft's ''The Nameless City'' (namedropped in many other CthulhuMythos stories) is an odd case; it's "real" name, if it ever had one, is unknown, but characters and fans pretty much turn the phrase "The Nameless City" into its NonindicativeName.

* Nameless, Tennessee is a sleepy little rural community which acquired its name when a representative from the US Postal Service informed them that, if they wanted to receive mail, they would have to give the place a name that you could properly address a letter to. The residents met and discussed various names, but ultimately decided that it was just a nameless sort of place, and so it officially became.

* In ''WesternAnimation/ShaunTheSheep: The Movie'', the bus display just says "Big City". The roadsign for the City Centre says it's twinned with Großstadt, La Grande Ville, and La Gran Ciudad ("The Big City" in German, French and Spanish).
