Imperial Palace, Trantum during the twilight glow. Magnificent imperial structures set in endless formal gardens, open skies and privacy, set amongst an endless hyper dense technological megalopolis in all directions where one can escape to find the deeply hidden pockets of sexual debauchery one craves on any given day, among a hive of highly sophisticated, highly functional social complexity.

I came here to say Narnia. Specifically the snowy woods and Beaver house from The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe and the place in Voyage Of The Dawntreader where the water is "sweet." And then I see that out of the whole series of books, R29 has mentioned these exact places. That's a strange coincidence, no?
It's been ~30 years since I last read those books and it was always The Dawntreader that stuck with me the most, I even remember there being a little poem or song about "where the waves grow sweet" and Lucy being desperate to get there. I was very obsessed with that book and that "sweet" water situation as a child.

Hogwarts was not a nice place if you weren't talented. If not for his friendship with the "chosen one" Neville would have been bullied all through school.
Have you seen now crappy the lives were for people on the lower levels of Coruscant? It's all airy and beautiful if you're a senator or rich or a Jedi, but there was a lot of resentment once you went underground. It was not a fun place.
The average person in Earthsea lived a subsistence existence. Did you see how Ged lived before Ogion took him as an apprentice and before going to Roke?
True, Valinor was beautiful if you were any of the Eldar.
