*** Said Sub-Atlantica is part of the [[Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians Sea of Monsters]], as is the [[WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor Great Asparagus Sea]]. [[Anime/TransformersCybertron The Cybetronian Ship Atlantis was also in the Sea of Monsters, and is not to be confused with the ''other'' Atlantis cities and locations]].

** ''[[WesternAnimation/ElTigreTheAdventuresOfMannyRivera Miracle City]]'' is located in Sonora Mexico.


* Website/NotAlwaysRight gives us [[http://notalwaysright.com/location-is-clearly-not-your-vocation/3361 a caller]] who lives in Springfield and can’t seem to tell what state she’s in herself.
* Some real-life places are undefined as well, likely because they’re a part of legend:
** 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 original Polynesian homeland.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Podcast/TheHiddenAlmanac'': The Gregorian calendar, and references to real holidays and products, all suggest the setting may be the real world. Except, well, a lot of obviously impossible stuff happens and the only places mentioned are fictional. The CityWithNoName and the country it resides in have an erratic mix of English and US American cultural and political traits, but references to its neighbors predate the European discovery of the New World, further confounding where it might be located. So maybe a very strange corner of Earth, or (given references to TheVerse) an alternate Earth with lots of weird stuff going on?


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

* The whole concept of PartsUnknown with all of its different "communities" would seem to apply here, especially because wrestlers from these places are never "shown" there. Because of {{Kayfabe}}, it's never explained how these wrestlers get paid, how they get home, if they have passports, etc. The MST3KMantra was made for situations like these.
