* As stated on TheOtherWiki, Timbuktu has been subject to this - a surprising amount of people in the UK thought Timbuktu [[http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/6062360.stm didn't actually exist]].

* In the Franchise/StarWars ExpandedUniverse book ''Med Star I: Battle Surgeons'' cruel, arrogant martial artist Phow Ji refuses to believe in the Force, even when Barriss levitates something using telekinesis right in front of his face, claiming it's just a trick. This disbelief (plus a lot of his contempt towards Jedi) stems from one Jedi playing fair in a martial arts contest by not using the Force, allowing Ji to beat him.

* ''Film/AFairlyOddChristmas'': Denzel Crocker didn't believe in North Pole or polar bears before going there and being chased by one. [[HypocriticalHumor And, yes,]] [[ArbitrarySkepticism this is coming]] from someone who already believes in Fairy Godparents and SantaClaus.

* A running gag in ''Roommates'', a ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' fanfic by Creator/TheWeaver, is that nobody has ever heard of France or anything French, reacting with bafflement to images of "some kind of A-shaped building" and a special kind of toast. It makes communicating with [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters one of the Freddys]], who has suffered aphasia and now only speaks French[[labelnote:note]]In the original context, his animatronic was set to the wrong default speaking language.[[/labelnote]]...difficult.

* Hal in ''WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}}''. "There is no Easter bunny, there is no tooth fairy, and there is no queen of England!" He's [[AccidentallyAccurate technically right:]] There hasn't been a monarch of England since the Acts of Union 1707 united England and Scotland to form Great Britain. Currently, the title is Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

* It apparently started out as an anecdote on Reddit, with a single poster complaining about their weird family and their weird beliefs, but then the thread exploded, the idea spread, and now there are people out there who honestly believe that Finland (as in, the actual country) never existed.

** To elaborate: according to the conspiracy theory, after WWII Japan had their fishing rights restricted and Russia needed more food. So, to solve these issues, they created a false landmass on the maps, "hiding" the sea where the Japanese could fish without any international restrictions, and the Russians in turn would receive part of the catch for being accomplices. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Also, they named the fake country Finland, because fishes have fins.]]
