* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' is set in “Free Country, USA”. Not even the characters really know where it is (apparently, it’s in “Place”). The only map of the place showed the continental U.S. as a free-floating continent, with Free Country in the exact center (so presumably Nebraska). And in ''VideoGame/StrongBadsCoolGameForAttractivePeople'', even locations within Free Country move around freely. That said, CreatorProvincialism puts Free Country somewhere on the East Coast (radio stations begin with “W”, and they’re within driving distance of a Hardee’s restaurant).

This confluence could easily place Free Country in rural Illinois, Indiana, or western Ohio.

** Maps shown in the series are of [[spoiler:an upside-down horizontally-flipped version of Madagascar, which is named Paradis.]] The enemy [[spoiler:Kingdom of Marley is somewhere in Europe, with depictions of ghettos similar to the ones Jewish people were forced into during WWII. They also just finished a war with a country that seems to be the universe's equivalent of Turkey]].

* ''Theatre/GlengarryGlenRoss'': While the Glengarry Islands and a few other (fictional) locations sold by the firm are in Florida, it is never revealed where their current focus, "Rio Rancho," is. There ''is'' a real Rio Rancho in New Mexico, and land there has actually become much more valuable since the play was written.

* ''Film/WonderWoman2017'' took Themiscyra, which in [[Comicbook/WonderWoman the comics]] is explicitly a Greek island, and put it in a vague Northern Sea location (as not only Steve crash lands there escaping from the [[Usefulnotes/WorldWarI Western Front]] and is followed by the German Navy, but he and Diana get to London from Themiscyra overnight).

** ''Film/BatmanForever'' hangs a {{lampshade|hanging}} on Gotham’s ambiguous geography by giving it landmarks associated with different real-world cities, like the Statue of Liberty and the Golden Gate Bridge. Some ''Batman'' continuities give Gotham a “Statue of Justice” instead.
