* Steven Erikson and Ian Esselmont created a fictional The setting that is used in for the ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' novels amongst many others.was created by Creator/StevenErikson and Ian Cameron Esslemont and is one of the most expansive examples, as it was initially constructed during role-playing sessions. Since both creators are anthropologists and archaeologists, there is [[ShownTheirWork quite a lot of verisimilitude]] to the setting. It has hundreds of thousands of years of history, a multitude of cultures and spans an entire planet with seven continents which, according to WordOfGod, is bigger than Earth. Of course, there are also the various non-human races with their ancestor and descendant races and several who are not native to that world as well.

* The world of Hillys in ''VideoGame/BeyondGoodAndEvil''. Background lore states it to be a colony world in a separate star system, though no mention of Earth or its culture was given until the sequel. Otherwise, it
may as well function as a separate world with its own flora, ecology, and hints of language and culture.

* The ''VideoGame/KisekiSeries'' is set in an unnamed world, with each arc taking place in a different country on the continent of Zemuria.


Added DiffLines:

* The planet of Avalice in ''VideoGame/FreedomPlanet'' has distinct ancient Chinese culture and architecture, but otherwise is in a ScienceFantasy universe all its own.
* The continent of Zemuria in the ''VideoGame/KisekiSeries'' is set in an unnamed world, with each story arc taking place in a different country. The place names, cultures, and fashion heavily crib from Middle Ages Europe, but the different system of measurements, existence of genuine if obscure magic and apparently genuine miracles from the goddess Aidios shape its world in different ways than our own. MagiTek technology, in particular, is thoroughly explored as technological change and a shift in global politics sweeps through the land.

* The world in ''WesternAnimation/TheMarvelousMisadventuresOfFlapjack'' shows some elements of this, the most notable example being in the episode, "Lost at Land," in which we get to see [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/FlapjackWorld_9072.GIF Flapjack's world from space]].

Compare ALongTimeAgoInAGalaxyFarFarAway, which is used more in [[SciFiCounterpart science fiction]] but usually has the same effect. Contrast MagicalLand, where the focus is on visitors to the setting and LikeRealityUnlessNoted. EarthAllAlong is a subversion of this trope.

trope. A world still called Earth but otherwise similar to a Constructed World is a FictionalEarth.



* Similar to ''Manga/OnePiece'', ''Manga/DragonBall'' takes place on an Earth-like world (also called Earth) that clearly has nothing to do with our Earth.
