* Well, not really that he wanted to go to a different country or anything, but...Roxas from ''KingdomHearts 2'' became jealous of the visions he had of Sora and his friends. To the point where he actually betrayed and left Organization XIII because he wanted friends and love so badly. The result? He gets tricked by [=DiZ=] into merging with Sora. Not quite what he wanted.

* ''Series/{{The 100}}'' has Earth serve as this for the people living on TheArk space station. Given their cramped quarters, lack of resources, and completely sterile and artificial environment, the wide open and natural world they see from orbit seems like it must be a paradise. They even have a religion where Earth serves as their version of Heaven.
** In Season 2, the people living underneath Mount Weather are revealed to have a similar view of the Earth's surface.

* Spoofed in the satire "Water". Michael Caine is the governor of this minor British colony in the Caribbean, and has just received word that the suits back in London are shutting down the colony and shipping the natives off elsewhere. Caine is griping that he's the only one who seems to be angry about this. "I suppose they all want to go where the grass is greener." "They'll find it jolly expensive!" (Caine and his companion are smoking the local dope at the time).

* In "Once Upon a Time", an episode of ''Series/TheTwilightZone'', a man played by Creator/BusterKeaton is driven buggy by the high prices and everyday annoyances of 1890. He steals an experimental time machine and travels forward to 1961, which he assumes will be a utopia. The noise and even higher prices of the then-present convince him that he prefers living in his own time.
