** Polynesian culture, as a result of being spread around several distant Pacific islands, tended to refer to TheOldCountry in this way. [[UsefulNotes/{{Hawaii}} Hawaiian mythology]], for instance, refers to “Kahiki”, which is often interpreted to be Tahiti, but can theoretically mean anywhere in Polynesia that isn’t Hawaii. The Maori concept of “Hawaiki” is similar (and may or may not refer to Hawaii). Recent DNA and linguistic studies have suggested that Taiwan could be the ancestral homeland for Polynesians.

* ''Theatre/StarlightExpress'': It is never mentioned where the railyard the musical takes place in is set, despite the fact that competitors from numerous different countries around the world take place in the championship races. It would make sense if it was set in the country of performance- England for the West End production, America for the Broadway production, Germany for the Bochum production, etc- but there are already national trains representing the wide majority of those countries (Prince of Wales, Greaseball and Ruhrgold being only three examples) implying that their country is not the host.
** To partially remedy this issue, many fans have settled on the idea that it is set in the (entirely fictional) Apollo-Victoria railyard, commonly referred to as 'the AV', which was named after the original West End theatre that Starlight Express took place in.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Theatre/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'': The West End version does this. Despite specifying where Augustus, Veruca and Violet are from (Bavaria, England and California, respectively), Mike is said to come from "Suburbia".
** The Broadway adaptation fixes this problem, stating instead that Mike is from Idaho, though the onstage background during his introduction still suggests he lives in an EverytownAmerica.

* In the ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' Christmas short ''Disney/OlafsFrozenAdventure'', one family has a family tradition of baking a cookie in the shape of Norway. Arendelle, however, was previously implied to be the FantasyCultureCounterpart to Norway. Anna also has lines implying that Arendelle is literally just that town surrounding the castle. The special makes it ambiguous whether Arendelle is a city-state or a country and if it is, just ''where'' does it take place (in Norway, nearby Norway, etc). To make it more confusing, the {{novelization}} has the family baking a cookie of Arendelle, implying that Norway doesn't exist.
