* EastGermany in general tends to be viewed as this by many West Germans, but Saxony is well known (to the point that any "Easterner" in a work of fiction will speak with a Saxon accent even if they are supposed to be from another part of the East). The other states? Good luck with that. Brandenburg might be known as "the countryside around USefulNotes/{{Berlin}}" and Mecklenburg Vorpommern may be known as "that one beach resort", but most people will not know much besides that and for Meck-Pomm they won't even know the capital (Schwerin, not Rostock)

* This is pretty much how the Indigo Lanterns operate in the ''Franchise/GreenLantern'' cosmology. They're the lanterns of Compassion but little detail is gone into them and they rarely involve themselves with the other six Lantern Corps.

* This is pretty much how the Indigo Lanterns operate in the ''Franchise/GreenLantern'' cosmology. They're the lanterns of Compassion but little detail is gone into them and they rarely involve themselves with the other six Lantern Corps. Eventually, it was revealed they are made up entirely of heinous criminals from all over the universe, given the rings as a sort of punishment, so that they are forced to feel guilt over their actions and atone for what they had done. Their individual members are still largely unnamed, however (their leader goes by "Indigo-1", instead of her real name), and their operations are still a complete mystery.

* In France, everything that isn't Paris or the Côte d'Azur is this. Just for fun, and don't cheat, can anyone tell where operation Neptune took place?

** This is especially baffling when one considers history; for the Anglophone world, it isn't Paris that's the most important out of all French regions culturally, politically, and linguistically.[[spoiler: It's also Normandy.]]
* For all the talk of Eurocentrism, knowledge about Central/Eastern Europe not named Russia or Poland are scarce, and even Poland is usually only mentioned in the context of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, as it's the only war where the entire world was involved. Most can recognize the distinction of pasta being an Italian invention and escargot being a French/Catalan one, but [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bigos bigos]]? Or the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tripe_soups tripe soup]]? Even capital cities are not safe; Brussels? Easy, that's the capital of Belgium. Vilnius? Uhh...[[note]] It's the capital of Lithuania.[[/note]]

* Of the four kingdoms of Remnant in ''WebOriginal/{{RWBY}}'', most of the kingdoms other than Vale are rarely seen, but much information about Atlas and Mistral Kingdoms are known, but the Kingdom of Vacuo and it's Huntsman Academy Shade Academy are barely mentioned other than as background information. With the other three Kingdoms, Vale Kingdom is the main setting of the series and where Ruby and Yang are from, Atlas Kingdom is where Weiss hails from as well as the home of the Schnee Dust Company, and Mistral Kingdom is where Haven Academy's Team SSSN hails from, where the terrorist organization the White Fang is based, and where [[BigBad Cinder Fall]] and her associates claimed to be from when they disguised themselves as Haven Academy students to infiltrate Beacon Academy. Unless you count Sun Wukong, who attends Haven Academy in Mistral, Vacuo Kingdom has so-far only had minor characters with minimal to no speaking roles.

* ''Series'/{{Oz}}'': The gays are mentioned as one of the ten factions of Oz, but they're never seen doing anything as an organized group, and only have three notable characters in the course of the show - one of which was introduced in the final episode.

** Also the Onmitsukido, a Shinigami organization composed of hitmen. Members of the Second Division usually take double duty as part of it, and it is always headed by the captain of that division (in this case, Sui-Feng, and formerly Yoruichi), but that's all we know of.



** Combined with CreatorProvincialism, it seems that the Second Wizarding War only affects Britain, because otherwise, that would make the Ministries of Magic of other countries complete unabashed Hufflepuff Houses. The fourth book mentions the Bulgarian Ministry of Magic, and additional materials mention no less than ''16'' Ministries of Magic existing at any time, [[http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Ministry_of_Magic#Known_countries_with_Ministries_of_Magic as shown here]], of which none (except the British, of course) is said to contribute in the war.



* ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'': Among the numerous cabins in Camp Half-Blood, The Demeter and Dionysus cabins receive a lot less focus compared to the others. It's even worse for the demigods of minor gods that are all thrown into Hermes cabin or are not even acknowledged by their parent.

It's even worse for the demigods of minor gods that are all thrown into Hermes cabin or are not even acknowledged by their parent. In fact, much of the plot of the series is a {{Deconstruction}} of this trope: the minor gods, who do not get the respect as the Olympians and have to sit on the sidelines all the time, finally snap and [[TheDogBitesBack bite back]] by joining the Titans so they can finally be in the spotlight. [[spoiler: They finally succeed at the end, and all of those who have demigod children are granted cabins at Camp Half-Blood.]]
** Of the cohorts of Camp Jupiter in ''Literature/TheHeroesOfOlympus'', only the Fifth Cohort, which the main heroes are placed in, matters. Take their centurions for example: while all are named, only those from the First and Fourth receive plot relevance; everyone else are relegated to the background.


Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' features a series of kingdoms and empires in Ivalice, but only [[TheKingdom Dalmasca]] and [[TheEmpire Archadia]] ever play consistent roles throughout the game. [[DoomedHometown Nabradia]] gets their screentime for all of the game's prologue before becoming destroyed in a [[FantasyCounterpartCulture fantasy equivalent]] of a [[EmptyQuiver nuclear attack]]; Rozarria is even worse, as while they're supposed to be Archadia's equal, we only get to meet two characters from there, and their territories we could explore do not extend beyond a barren wasteland, let alone their capital. Bhujerba, Jahara, the Eruyt Village, and Mt. Bur-Omisace only serve as places where the heroes find PlotCoupon so they can disappear from the lore in peace. The game mentions even more nations in passing out there - Basch [[spoiler: and Gabranth/Noah]] for example came from a republic called Landis - but we never get to know anything about them.

* In ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', the U.A. school has 4 courses: Heroic Course (trains students into heroes), Support (gadget developments), Management, and General Education. The Heroic course is where a majority of the characters come from. Meanwhile, Support and General Education has one notable student each and Management students has only been seen as background characters.

** Ohio governor John Kasich was this for the Republican Party's 2016 presidential primaries. Despite starting off in a group of [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters seventeen nominees]] and only winning his home state, he stuck with his campaign, becoming the third remaining contender alongside Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, both of whom won more states and outperformed him in almost all cases. His only chance to win the nomination was through a contested convention, and would have been a long shot even if it had gotten to that point. Kasich and Cruz both dropped out after losing to Trump in Indiana, since at that point his nomination was all but certain (compare Trump's 1000+ delegates to Cruz's 800+ and Kasich's 150+)

** Ohio governor John Kasich has been this for the Republican Party's 2016 presidential primaries. Despite starting off in a group of [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters seventeen nominees]] and only winning his home state, he has stuck with his campaign and is the third remaining contender alongside Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, both of whom have won more states and outperformed him in almost all cases. His only chance to win the nomination is for the Republican National Convention to become a brokered convention, and even then he would be a long shot without several rounds of voting.
