* [[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield Springfield]] from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' is largely based on creator Creator/MattGroening's home town of Portland, Oregon, with elements of Olympia, WA, where he attended college. (The city square with its statue of Jebediah Springfield, to cite one example, is highly reminiscent of Olympia's Sylvester Park.)

* ''Literature/McAuslan'': The regiment the series is centered around is purported to be fictional, but the text contains more than enough references to figure it out, if you have access to the internet or a decent library. For example, the regiment fought in Singapore and its colonel was captured, it has a long-standing rivalry with the Argyll and Sutherland Regiment, and the main character's name is a reference to the regiment's motto. [[spoiler: if you're curious, it's the 2nd Gordon Highlanders.]]

** More specifically, according to [[Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} The Other Wiki]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isola_(fictional_city) "Calm's Point" is Brooklyn, "Majesta" is Queens, "Riverhead" is the Bronx, and "Bethtown" Staten Island]]. "Diamondback" is Harlem. Then there's the Harb (Hudson) and Dix (East) Rivers, and the similarly unnamed "next state" (New Jersey). George M. Dove's unofficial 1985 companion to the series, ''The Boys from Grover Avenue'', analyzes the geography of [=McBain=]'s "Imaginary City" and describes it as NYC rotated through ninety degrees clockwise, so that north becomes east, east south, etc.

* ''Literature/TheRailwaySeries'' books take place on the fictional Island of Sodor, and a number of the railways are clearly based on real locations - the Skarloey Railway is the Talyllyn Railway, the Arlesdale Railway is the Ravenglass and Eskdale, the Mid Sodor is a combination of the Corris, Festiniog and Snailbeach railways and the Little Western is the Dart Valley.

The "Isle of Sodor" is a British ecclesiastical in-joke - the Church of England's Diocese of Sodor and Man now covers just the Isle of Man and a few small islets nearby, but once covered a much larger area, "Sodor" being an Anglicised version of the Norse collective name for the islands of western Scotland.
