* ''Film/TheTrumanShow'': Truman lives in a nice little town, ignoring that it is the biggest studio in the world and that his life is a TV show. Christoff justifies that he wonít free Truman because while in his studio, where everyone protects him and give him an easy life, he will be safe from the evil of reality.

* MagiLabyrinthOfMagic: The University. It's an elitist culture where you have to be strong in ALL stats, but contains many caring individuals and cooperative guilds. Then Aladdin finds the slave pens, who the headmaster declares "are in their place, and even better off than before". And later on the slaves are used to create a titanic EldritchAbomination made of black Rukh, which is basically hate in the form of sprit ravens.

* Skypeia is probably the most peaceful place in the manga, made of clouds with nice people. But they worship an EvilGod who is merely using (and planning to kill) them for its own ends.

* Earth-10 in ''[[ComicBook/TheMultiversity The Mastermen #1]]'', an Earth established on the Nazi Party's dogma. It's a very stagnant world as reflected by the architecture. There's no variety, no art of any kind, the cities are literally covered in grossly extravagant eagle statues and swastikas are plastered on everything. This isn't even getting into the rampant racial, religious, and sexual persecutions that have been going on since the 1940s.

** Sequel ''VideoGame/{{BioShock Infinite}}'' has Columbia, which has become a war-zone between "super-Libertarians" who have totally lost the point and jingoistic, ultra-patriotic, religiously fundamentalists by the time the player comes through. Add to that the fact reality itself is becoming increasingly unstable, and things get worse.

* Wellington Wells in ''VideoGame/WeHappyFew''. The town sure ''looks'' bright and colorful, and everyone ''seems'' happy, but that's only because everyone is [[GovernmentDrugEnforcement drugged up]] on [[FantasticDrug Joy]], and if they ''don't'' act happy and cheerful they might be on the wrong end of the law, or an angry mob. The town is surrounded by ruined buildings infested with the Wastrels, moody and miserable outcasts who were driven out of town and left to fend for themselves because of their immunity to Joy. On top of all that, it's implied food supplies are running low and Wellington Wells' "perfect" society is on the edge of collapse. This is why the player characters have become [[DefectorFromDecadence Downers]] and are plotting to escape.

* In ''Literature/PhoenixInShadow'', the protagonists go to explore a region that's been turned dark and twisted by a LeakingCanOfEvil, and unexpectedly find that at its heart there is an area that's seemingly immune to the evil and is occupied by an apparently utopian community which has developed without any outside contact for centuries. They're certain there must be some catch, and they turn out to be right.
