* There's a ColdWar UrbanLegend (that inspired several of the above examples) that the KGB had simulated American streets/towns/cities (it varies) in secret locations which were used for the training of spies infiltrating the United States, teaching them to be perfect Americans in every way. Actual 'illegals' were more likely to get around this problem by posing as immigrants from European countries, so a detailed background check or minor cultural mistake would not give them away, and get their training in a BoringButPractical classroom.

* The NewJediOrder novel ''Star By Star'' featured two facilities of this sort. One was built for the YVH-class droids, and was accurate down to the "pedestrians" (actually weapons techs, who knew the droid wouldn't target them) - and absolutely no challenge whatsoever for the YVH. The other was designed to train voxyn and included not just buildings and walkways but (nonfunctional) vehicles, aircraft, and even a wrecked AT-AT, along with a sizable slave population to play the "residents".
