Fiction and Literature: A complete list of 10 cities, towns and villages that cannot be traced in history
Gotham City: a dark, crime laden locale. Home of Batman

Riverdale: presented as a suburban town with parks, shopping malls and restaurants
Sweet and realistic as the name sounds, Riverdale has never existed. So if you are looking forward to the day you will set your eyes on this suburban town with parks, shopping malls and restaurants; then I am afraid you will have to wait till Jesus comes back because it can never happen. Riverdale is a fictional city mainly featured in the Archie Comics whose exact location has never been traced.
Zion: the last human city standing on Planet Earth after a cataclysmic nuclear war
This is a famous name, right? Well the truth of the matter is, there is no city going by the name Zion in this world. Zion City is a product of human imagination which first appeared in “The Matrix” films.
In the film, Zion is the last human city standing on Planet Earth after a cataclysmic nuclear war between humans and machines resulting in artificial life forms dominating the world.
Springfield: a mid-sized town, setting for American animated sitcom dubbed “The Simpsons”
In fiction, Springfield is a mid-sized town acting as the setting for American animated sitcom dubbed “The Simpsons.”
It acts as a hub in which characters can explore issues faced by modern society but in the world of Geography and map work, there is no such town as Springfield.
South Park Colorado: home to popular characters ranging from students to elementary school staff. A bland and serene place to live in.
In most works of Fiction, the name South Park Colorado is used to describe a small fictional town that acts as home to popular characters ranging from students to elementary school staff. South Park Colorado is a bland and serene place to live in but it does not exist in real life.
Castle Rock: a typical small town in New England with the darkest secrets that the world has ever known
Being part of Stephen King’s fiction, Castle rock appears realistic especially having served as the setting for many of his literary works including the novel, novellas and short stories.
However, it is greatly disappointing to find out that there is no place called Castle Rock.
