A MagicalLand or AnotherDimension comprising the collective dreams of humanity. Can be a collective dream, or the dream of a [[JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind specific person]]. Generally surreal, nonsensical, and psychologically symbolic. Alternatively, just [[SugarBowl adorable]] randomness. Usually divided into two halves or factions--[[BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind nightmares]] and [[HappyPlace good dreams]].

* The world of ''Webcomic/{{Dreamkeepers}}'' is somehow connected to the dreams of humanity, and its' sapient inhabitants or "Dreamkeepers" are each connected to a living human and responsible for guarding their dreams from corruption by the Nightmares. However, the Nightmares haven't been seen in centuries and the average dreamkeeper is as aware of their human as humans are of their dreamkeepers. Making the DreamLand setting more background material than anything else.

** Sub-Con in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2'', while the ingame plot leaves it ambiguous whether it was an actual place accessed by dream or if it was AllJustADream in the more mundane sense, the [[AllThereInTheManual manual]], and [[NoExportForYou Japan only]] Satellaview sequel reveal Subcon is an actual place.
** The Dream World of ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiDreamTeam'' is another an actual place, accessed through Luigi falling asleep on magic pillows that are the petrified bodies of the native Pi'llos. While the [[DualWorldGameplay exact geography of the Dream World section visited depends on where Luigi falls asleep]], it's still depicted as existing independently of the green guy's mind.

** ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'' contains the Astral Realms, which have three distinct levels. The Oneiros is each individual's personal MentalWorld, and thus the only one not fitting this trope. The Temenos is the collective MentalWorld of humanity, containing the sum total of all human knowledge, belief, and experience, albeit shrouded in metaphor, symbolism and subjectivity. Each concept has its own realm, and they are either ruled over by gods (all gods ever beleived in exist in the Temenos) or [[AnthropomorphicPersonification archetypes]]. Travel is made by locating aspects in one realm and moving to another connected to it by word association. It is possible for the realms of ideologies to enforce belief in their ideology upon visitors. Even deeper is the Anima Mundi (also called the Dreamtime), which is essentially the MentalWorld of the Earth itself. Its entirely inhuman perspective can wash away any unprotected human mind that tries to pass through it. It contains the Earth's perspective on humanity (represented as a vast swath of destruction), nature (which is filled with animal and elemental archetypes; notably, the animal archetypes are devoid of AnimalMotifs) and the wider universe (represented as an incomprehensibly large void filled with bizarre objects and beings). All Astral Realms operate on [[YearInsideHourOutside subjective time]]. The length of real time one spends in the Astral Realms largely depends on the degree to which you interact with them (so, for example, if you merely pass through a desert, it might ''feel'' like hours, but in real time, it will take about as long as it takes to ''say'' "I pass through the desert").
