The trope is [[TropeNamer named after]] Springfield, the hometown of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', which even has its own SeparateSimpsonsGeographyThing. “Springfield” is one of the most common names for towns and cities in the United States, so the name serves as an indicator of an EverytownAmerica.

* ''Toys/TheGrosseryGang'' webseries takes place in Cheap Town, which has various contradicting elements to its locale that makes it impossible to pinpoint, such as Australian-style wall outlets and snow during Christmastime.

* Part of ''Anime/YourName'' is set in Itomori, a fictional town in Gifu Prefecture, Japan that is based on the real-world Hida City, but is also next to a lake based on Lake Suwa in not that near Nagano Prefecture. Given Shinkai's pendant for RealPlaceBackground,

** Similarly, in ''Fanfic/KiryuuinChronicles'', we can assume that the fic takes place in America; Rye is from somewhere in New York, and [[spoiler: Satsuki's father, Soichiro]] lives there, although other details suggest that the story itself takes place somewhere in the Midwest.

* ''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]].

* ''WesternAnimation/ChickenRun'' is set on a farm in [[OopNorth Northern England]], which could be pretty much anywhere. (TheOtherWiki claims it's in Yorkshire.)

* ''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.
