* In "Series/{{Justified}}" the residents of Harlan County are an insular community. Everyone knows everyone and can tell you what you and your family have been up to all the way back to your great great grandpappy. For the most part, the residents are antagonistic towards each other (The Bennetts vs. The Givenses, The Crowders vs The Bennetts, etc.), as each family represents a major (or aspiring) crime family, but they will circle the wagons together against outsiders.

* Harmonica Town in ''HarvestMoon Animal Parade'' is this, probably because it's a very rural setting and the only town on the island.
** For that matter, all of the ''RuneFactory'' games have tight knit, small rural towns. Eventually, the player becomes a full member in these towns.

* Somewhat true of Springfield in ''TheSimpsons''. Probably because it seems EveryoneWentToSchoolTogether. Everyone seems to know everyone else, and ''most'' of Springfield attends church together weekly. Subverted in that [[PowderKegCrowd people can be turned against one another and riot frequently]].

* In {{FanFic/Nosflutteratu}} we learn that Fluttershy is a vampire and has been for years. So how does a vampire survive, even thrive, for years without killing anypony? Ponyville’s blood drives are ''very'' successful.

* The surviving Ishvalan community in Central and in the East are very close in ''FanFic/SonOfTheDesert''. To the point that Edward has to invite all of them to his 16th birthday.

* Similarly, ''TerraNova'', though larger than most such communities, probably counts.
* ''Series/TheTwilightZone's'' Maple Street was like this before the monsters were due.

* MonarchOfTheGlen
* Little Tall Island from Creator/StephenKing's ''StormOfTheCentury''. In fact, the villain says that the reason he chose to come to Little Tall was because he knew that they were a close-knit community who could pull together and "do what needs to be done." After the storm, Little Tall arguably moves from this into a TownWithADarkSecret.

* Stars Hollow from GilmoreGirls. Hilariously Lampshaded when Paris barges in, trying to write an article for Chilton's school newspaper about the "[[TownWithADarkSecret dark secret]]" of the town.
* CoronationStreet despite the high divorce and disaster rate is this. The shows more idealistic tone means the street is still a community where "folk look out for each other and come together in crisis" even though disaster is a bit more common than some of the other examples.

* In WenSpencer's ''{{Literature/Tinker}}'', Pittsburgh sometimes shows shades of this. In ''Elfhome'', Tinker and Oilcan are deliberately trying to foster it.
* In RobinMcKinley's ''Literature/{{Sunshine}}'', the coffee-house.
* In PatriciaCWrede's Literature/FrontierMagic novel ''Literature/ThirteenthChild'', two women are waiting to welcome the family to Mill City, because the mother might have difficulty getting them all fed, given how late their arrival is; the man telling them this assures them that they look out for each other in Mill City.
