It seems like that would be a great place to live, if only so you could say “I’m living in a Dreamworld.” But it got me wondering if there were other places you could live that would be fun to tell people. I immediately thought of “Fear,” “Denial,” “Filth,” “Squalor,” “Oblivion” and “Obscurity,” but there are no such places.
One interesting place to live is “Fairyland,” which is located purely by coincidence in Queensland, Australia.
I looked for towns called “Sin” and “Mycar,” but struck out. However, there is such a place as “Avan” in Kazakhstan. But it seems like a long way to go for a joke, and it’s not down by a river.
But I was cheered by the fact that there’s a town called “Misery” in France, which is a lot closer than Kazakhstan. Even better still, you can live in “Poverty” in Kentucky.
On the flip side, there’s a “Comfort,” Texas.
I tried “Purgatory” and “Hell,” but nobody loved those names enough to name a town after them. Or if they did, the town council voted to change the name a long time ago. But “Paradise” is everywhere: New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Michigan, California and Nova Scotia.
Even more popular is “Harmony,” which can be found in Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Maine, Indiana, Florida, Texas, Wyoming and California. Equally popular is “Utopia,” which can be found in Alaska, Illinois, Kansas, Florida, Ohio, New York, Ontario and New Brunswick.
If you find this kind of research troubling, you can always go to live in “Asylum,” California.
