*** Furthermore, the episode "Where's Pinky?" reveals that the area was originally three distinct Single-State Areas, suggesting ''another'' merger between two of them to form the Bi-State Area.

* Many cities share the same name, which can make telling which is which a bit of a pain. Alexandria, which most would think of as the city in Egypt, is only one of eight cities in AlexanderTheGreat's former empire (several other Alexandrias changed their names since his time). There even more in other countries, with two Alexandrias in Canada, three in Australia, and 19 in the US.

* The city that the localization of''Franchise/AceAttorney'' takes place in is left rather ambiguous in the games themselves, and although WordOfGod has vaguely placed it in Los Angeles, there have been a few things have contradicted this - One major one being in the franchise's ''very first'' episode to do with time zones. Plus on top of all this, the city seems to have a Japanese culture to it (obviously since the original versions take place in Japan). Most people just take WordOfGod as fact, and place the games in L.A, with the fanbase giving the location the fan-nickname of "Japanifornia''.

* The European Community once published a map of Europe that omittted the whole of Wales and gave Great Britain a brand new coastline running north-south from the Wirral to the Severn Estuary. Towns like Chester and Shrewsbury could apparently look forward to reinventing themselves as beach resorts. Many apologies were made to an irritated Welsh nation and the country was eventually restored.

* The town that ''DNAngel'' is set in is a strange case - all the characters have Japanese names and they seem to follow Japanese customs, but the town's architecture looks like a seaside European villa. The anime added a character that claimed to be an exchange student from America, but otherwise countries aren't really mentioned. In fact, the audio commentary for the English dub has two actors from it asking "Where is this set, anyway? France?"

* Most of ''Anime/KikisDeliveryService'' takes place in a city that explicitly borrows architectural elements from such locations as Stockholm, Visby, Lisboa, Napoli and Paris. It is implied to be located in Northern Europe, and the inhabitants seem to be a mix of European and East Asian phenotypes with no hint of racial segregation or discrimination.

* ''ChickenRun'' is also set in [[OopNorth Northern England]] but on a farm, which makes it even harder to tell where exactly in Northern England it is.

* In ''The Name of This Book Is Secret,'' the narrator specifically says that he cannot reveal where the story is set( or even the real names of the characters) because it is too dangerous. The book is just as strange as it sounds.

* ''Film/{{Payback}}'' is set in some city during [[AnachronismStew some decade]]. The architecture, clothing, furniture, and phones all make both its city difficult to place both in location and time.

* Its very ambiguous where Amestris is in AlternateUniverseFic ''FanFic/ImGivingYouANightCall''. Countries like the U.S. and Japan exist but its implied to have been created post WWII [[spoiler: based off [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist Edward the 1st s]] stories of the actual Amestris.]]

* Unlike many King stories that are set in fictional cities in Maine, or actual places the author has lived (Florida and Colorado in particular), ''Literature/TheRunningMan'' was set in the fictional Harding, somewhere in the Midwest. It's a flight east to get to New York (and later Maine).

* Domino City, the city where the ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' franchise originates, is almost definately in Japan; which island, however, is unclear. (Some have speculated that it may simply be a ficticious version of Tokyo, but this is not official.
** Heartland City, where ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'' takes place is probably in Japan too but again, exactly where is unknown.
