It plays the socially liberal, democratic/socialist foil (apart from a brief period of [[ANaziByAnyOtherName vitalism]]) to the US, which serves as TheEmpire.

** Updike's ''TheWitchesOfEastwick'' cross-pollinated HollywoodNewEngland with LovecraftCountry. The fictional town of Eastwick has since become conflated with the actual town of Ipswich since much of TheFilmOfTheBook was filmed there, while the setting of the book was modeled after a small village in Rhode Island named Wickford which looks pretty much like a cross between the two.
* ''TheDevilAndDanielWebster'' makes much of its New Hampshire setting.

* In ''NewsRadio'', a botched speech therapy session has Lisa speaking in her native Boston accent, which she had dropped for being too embarrassing. It's also implied that it might have been intentional to ruin her radio voice.

** Similarly, Vermont is happy to tell you at length about its trees and skiing. The only cities that exist are Burlington and Brattleboro, the latter of which is technically a town and is known only because people coming up from MA, CT, or NYC usually pass through it and/or stop there to get gas and food or to find some way to get their kids to shut up.
