Personally, I feel that "Mordor" seems too specific a name for this trope. Perhaps renaming it something more broad would give a general feel about what the trope is about, not just franchise-specific. If one saw that the trope page is called Mordor, they may automatically associate it with LOTR more than "The Worf Effect" in Star Trek. If it were up to me, I would rename it "The black land" or "Barren Wasteland" or something like that. Of course, this is only my opinion.

Example removed because it seems to be shoehorning a work onto this trope (which, I think, should not have examples overlapping with Fluffy Cloud Heaven), backing up its strained argument with sinkholes to other tropes that it may not represent either:

Sorry to be a spoilsport, but does anyone think we should probably dump the Real Life section here too? It's not exactly a positive trope, and hence it could become host to a ton of Unfortunate Implications.
