* Thanks to popular "high quality" memes originating from there, such as Webcomic/{{Dolan}} and Spurdo Spärde, UsefulNotes/{{Finland}} gained quite a reputation in that regard.

* MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fanfiction in general has a minor trend of painting Ponyville as this; the regular monster attacks, location on the edge of an EldritchLocation, and habit of the main characters suffering emotional breakdowns means a reputation tend to develop.

** The series doesn't have [[MinimalistCast a lot of characters]], but almost everyone we meet is a [=Cloudcuckoolander=]. We've got [=GLaDOS=], the facility's omnipotent AI who's got a few screws loose, and cares only about science and bratty mocking. There's Wheatley, the dense but sweet British robot who [[spoiler: was designed to make [=GLaDOS=] stupid, and goes evil when hooked into her body]]. Doug Rattmann was a scientist whose paranoid schizophrenia saved him, since it turned out that he ''was'' at the mercy of an evil robot, and with his love for the CompanionCube writes helpful and creepy messages on the walls. There are the testing robots, Atlas and P-body, who are both overly playful, eccentric and oddly ''human''. The founder of the facility, Cave Johnson, was egotistical and stubborn, and a little bit hazy on the morals. Caroline his secretary seemed sensible, except [[spoiler: she got turned into GLaDOS]]. Really, the only one at all "normal" is Chell, and she doesn't speak because of pathological stubbornness!

* The Magic Users' world in ''Manga/{{Dorohedoro}}''. Strange fashions, stranger masks, odd architecture, a restaurant whose main attraction is a toilet connected to Hell...



* There is nobody at Tenchi Academy who is completely sane in ''Manga/HayateCrossBlade''.



* Kazakhstan in ''Film/{{Borat}}'' is treated this way. It didn't work so well, despite trying to take RefugeInAudacity. Of course the real joke wasn't picking on Kazakhstan, it was that no matter how ridiculously backwards and offensive he got, lots of supposedly normal people would go along with it...
* ''Film/CoolWorld''. Unlike most {{Toon}} worlds, it's dark and hellish, quite often verging on an EldritchLocation.
* The nameless town from ''Film/EdwardScissorhands''.
* Wherever the hell ''Film/{{Eraserhead}}'' takes place.



* In ''Film/{{Gymkata}}'' there is the crazy town Cabot has to go through as part of the game, which includes a guy who cuts off his own hand in the middle of fight because he couldn't let go of a pipe he grabbed for some reason.
* Superior, Arizona, the town where the protagonist Bobby gets stranded in ''Film/UTurn'', is depicted in this way.
--> Bobby: [[LampshadeHanging "Is everyone in this town on drugs?!?"]]



* ''Film/CoolWorld''
* ''Film/{{Gymkata}}''. Parmistan is ''one goofy country''.

%%* [[ArakawaUnderTheBridge The Arakawa riverbank]].



%%* ''Manga/CromartieHighSchool''.



* Definitely the titular guild in ''Manga/FairyTail''. Many of the legal guilds (and several dark ones) qualify as well, though Fairy Tail is by far the most outlandish.
* ''Manga/FujimuraKunMates'', a tsukkomi in a world of boke.
