Added DiffLines:

*''ParksAndRecreation'': The Parks building seems to have more murals than could possibly fit in the building. Justified due to the show's RunningGag of having a mural for pretty much every situation that comes up.

* Angel Grove for the first six seasons of ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', largely due to the mix of varying StockFootage from ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' and on-location footage from LA. There's the city proper, the beach, the adjacent vast desert, a large forested nature preserve, the park (which got bigger as time went on, eventually developing a massive lake that wasn't there before), snow-capped mountains not too far away, and, of course, innumerable suspiciously similar quarries scattered throughout all of the above for convenient fight-sceneing.

* The fictional Lanford, Illinois in ''Series/{{Roseanne}}'' wasn't as bad as most. However, it started as a small rural backwater with one single factory supplying jobs for the majority of the town (the collapse of Wellman Plastics had a strong ripple during the show.) As the series went on, it became large enough to support a mall that should have provided just as many jobs as the factory, and such niche stores such as a motorcycle shop (temporarily,) a rare book store, a community theater, a sleazy massage parlor, a Hooters-knockoff called "Bunz."

* Pine Valley, PA, setting of ''Series/AllMyChildren'', ostensibly a small town, has a university with every graduate program you may need, a television station where national network shows are shot, an international airport, a casino (which were ''illegal'' in Pennsylvania until much later), and the headquarters of several major corporations. It also has a beach. In Pennsylvania. An ad for the show on Soapnet parodied all this. And there are several ''uncharted islands'' off this beach. In Pennsylvania. Made even worse when you consider Llanview, PA - the setting of sister soap OneLifeToLive. Both shows establish that the towns are neighbors, located across the river from each other. Llanview also has an international airport, a major University, and several corporate headquarters. Pine Valley is supposed to be located near Philadelphia - itself a major city with all of these trappings. You can substitute nearly every American Soap Opera town: Salem on ''Series/DaysOfOurLives'', Port Charles on ''Series/GeneralHospital''. Not only do these towns acquire new neighborhoods as the plot demands, they are also hotbeds of international crime and espionage.

See JustForFun/SeparateSimpsonsGeographyThing.has [[JustForFun/SeparateSimpsonsGeographyThing a page of its own]] describing not only [[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield Springfield's location]] but also a big chunk of the things inconsistently found within the city's borders, including three mountains, two subway systems (one abandoned), a bridge that was once the only way out of Springfield, and "Area 51-A".

* The main town of the ''{{Franchise/Buildingverse}}'' is prone to this (it grew several restaurants, a university, a [[VanishingVillage river that later couldn't be found]], or [[Webcomic/MeanwhileUpstairs a hill]] just to make a heroic DivingSave possible, amongst other things), as are magical kingdoms where ''[[Webcomic/GirlsNextDoor Sudden Geography]]'', for example [[{{Webcomic/Roommates}} a sea appearing from nowhere]] to [[TravellingAtTheSpeedOfPlot slow down an attacking army]], is totally normal.
