The Homelands are the mythical lands from fairy tales, folklore, and nursery rhymes in the comic book series Fables. The majority of those listed have been conquered by the mysterious Adversary, as he has conquered most of the European Fable lands. This is a list of the Homelands that have been directly referenced in Fables and its spin-offs Jack of Fables, Cinderella: From Fabletown with Love, Cinderella: Fables are Forever and Fairest.
Toscane, also known as the Imperial Homeworld. This world is Italian in nature, which can be seen in the Roman styles of architecture of Calabri Anagni, the capital city of the Empire. This world is home to several Italian Fables; the Adversary and the characters from the tale of Pinnochio. Formerly the home to the Sacred grove, now located in the Kingdom of Haven. When translated into Latin, Calabri refers to the Boot heel-shaped peninsula in Italy and Anagni refers to the ancient town in central Italy.
The Kingdom of the Great Lion
The Kingdom of the Great Lion is a reference to Narnia, It was another land that was conquered early on. Due to the Chronicles of Narnia currently being protected by copyright, the kingdom may never be officially named. The first chapter of "War And Pieces" is called "The Voyage Of The Sky Treader", which may be a reference to The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader (the 5th book in the "Narnia" series, using the internal chronology). In Fables 137 (Camelot, Part Six), Winter refers to a book her mother reads to her and her siblings all the time, about a land where there is always winter, but never Christmas; this is a reference to The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Middle-Earth: A flashback in the Legends in Exile story arc shows short slaves (Hobbits) being whipped by goblins (orcs). Yet another land conquered by the Adversary.
Lilliput is from Gulliver's Travels. It is unknown if the island of Lilliput is conquered by the Adversary, however, the first party that came from Lilliput is now living in Smalltown of Fabletown's upstate Farm annex.

Foggytown is located in the Kingdom of the North Wind.
The Rus is a mythical version of Russia and home to many Slavic Fables; Baba Yaga, the mice and the cat from the Russian lubok The Mice are burying the Cat, and Ivan Durak, all came from this world. It was controlled by Baba Yaga, until she was captured in the Battle of Fabletown. Her Knights also patrolled the lands until they were beheaded by Boy Blue.

Dunhill, Viss, Haven, and Lamien

The Arabian Homeworld
The Arabic Fable Homeworld: It is a primary Islamic world host to places such as Ali Baba's Cave, mythical versions of Baghdad and Samarcand and Fabletown East. Flying carpets, Manticores and Ghouls can also be found in this world. A gate to this world is found in modern-day Baghdad, leading to its fabled version. Solomon's plan of trapping Djinns in wish-granting bottles was initiated here.Sinbad, Yusuf, Hakim and the Three Harem girls, Sidi-Nouman, King Shahryar, Scheherazade,Aladdin and Ali Baba all came from this world.
The Asian Homeworld
The Asian Kingdoms: The Homelands version of China is referred to, but not named, in Cinderella: Fables are Forever, which refers to the empire from the Chinese folktale about Meng Chiang-Nu.
The Hidden Kingdom: The homelands version of Japan. The people of The Hidden Kingdom lived side by side with creatures from Japanese mythology, including the funa yurei, kappas, the legendary tanuki, kitsune, kirin and assorted yokai. It was ruled by an Emperor, who is referred to as Heika, a term used to identify the emperor in Japanese. The Hidden Kingdom was conquered by the Adversary after the Seii Taishogun was secretly laying the way for an invasion. Many of the kingdom's citizens are living in exile in a secret Fable community in Tokyo.
The Cloud Kingdoms from Jack and the Beanstalk, the Cloud Kingdoms exist in their own interdimensional way, being a world of their own but at the same time existing over all of the other worlds.
Everyone in the Cloud Kingdoms seems to live in their own castle. There is one High King that rules over the rest of the giants, but it's passed between them often since no one wants the extra responsibilities. The giants of the Cloud Kingdoms aren't very intelligent. Their medicine is medieval and at least one of the giants is proud of being illiterate.
As a young boy, Jack Horner visited the Cloud Kingdoms. While there, he stole several valuable items. 
Due to the relative isolation of the Cloud Kingdoms, it is untouched by the Adversary as the Empire has yet to find a feasible means to enter the land of giants, making it one of the few free European fable kingdoms safe from its grasp.
In more recent times, the Cloud Kingdoms have become friendly with Fabletown due to Cinderella's efforts. She managed to get them to allow Bigby Wolf to start a mission to attack The Empire from their kingdom.Cite error: Closing </ref> missing for <ref> tag.
A fabled version of India, and home to Mowgli, Shere Khan, Bagheera, Baloo and others from The Jungle Book. As the last remaining member of the Raj, the current Viceroy is Lord Mountbatten, a Clockwork Tiger crafted as a gift to Lord Viceroy Lovejoy by the craftsmen of Maharaja Sindu Baba Singh. The Indu might not be the home to Fables of Indian origin but rather those who are born from the British view on India, thus explaining why it was conquered alongside the European worlds instead of the Oriental worlds.
The Golden Realm
The Golden Realm, also known as The West. It was ruled by the King to the West, the father of the prince from the fairy tale Snow White and Rose Red. The Golden Realm borders on the Silver Realm and The North. The Magical Forest from Snow White and Rose Red and Snow White and the Seven Dwarves lies in between all three realms.
The Lands of Prince Charming, ruled by his father, the King to the North. Prince Charming's lands were confirmed as taken in the Legends in Exile story arc. Whether or not the Adversary conquered the Dwarf Kingdom underneath is unknown. However, no dwarves seem to be living in Fabletown, The Farm or even The Golden Boughs Retirement Village. Furthermore, Dwarf Kingdom was not even mentioned during war preparations.
Landfall is a science fiction-like world with advanced technology and space travel. Apparently, Landfall was not conquered by the Adversary. "Jack Frost Two" spent time there during his career as a hero-for hire. The capital city is also called Landfall.
The Hesse, also known as The German Fable lands. The name Hesse is derived from one of the larger states in Germany. The Hesse is host to the Black Forest, the city of Hamelin, the town of Winsen and the Weser River. Much of the novel Peter and Max is set in Hesse, and Dunster Happ spent seven years in the Hesse trapping the last of the Baleful Hernes (presumably a reference to Herne the Hunter and Wild Hunt).
The Black Forest: Located in the Hesse and former home to Bigby Wolf, Frau Totenkinder and a whole array of malign spirits, ogres and bogeymen. It is not known whether the Forest itself was taken over by the Empire, because the Hessians themselves do not dare to enter it. The rest of the Hesse, on the contrary, was indeed conquered. In Peter and Max: A Fables Novel, it is revealed that the Adversary's troops did enter the Black Forests on numerous occasions (to try to hunt The Big Bad Wolf, as well as to travel to Hamelin).

Night lasts for six months in Ultima Thule.
Oz, also known as the Emerald Kingdom, from the classic Wizard of Oz series by L. Frank Baum. It and surrounding kingdoms are controlled by the Nome King. The Scarecrow, Tin Man, Lion, and Dorothy were imprisoned at the Golden Boughs Retirement Village until Jack Horner helped them escape.Princess Ozma escaped and is currently a member of Fabletown's coven of magicians, witches and sorcerers.

The Land of Ev
The Land of Ev is a land where Bufkin ends up after climbing the Fabletown Business Office's tree. Ev, like Oz, was conquered by the former Adversary, and is now ruled by the Nome King as part of his Pan-Ozian Empire.

The Lands of the West
The Lands of the West is ruled by the West Wind.
Far Mattagonia, also known as Toyland,Madland and the Wondrous Shore. A land of discarded toys, the Discardia. Because the land is inhabited by toys from the mundane world, it is possible that Toyland is not actually part of the Homelands, but part of another, alternate reality.
The Roman Empire
The Roman Empire – While searching for her lost children, Rapunzel witnessed the birth of an empire, when she found a she-wolf suckling the infant Romulus and Remus.
Kingdom of a Thousand Hills
The Kingdom of a Thousand Hills is a homeworld of African origin. One of the many worlds that Rapunzel visited while searching for her lost children.
Wonderland, Looking-Glass Land, and Snark Island
Wonderland, Looking-Glass Land and Snark Island are all rom Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. Never shown or referred to, except for a vague reference to Looking-Glass Land in the "who's who" in the Jack of Fables trade paperback Jack of Hearts, which refers to Alice as "a survivor of several adventures through a looking-glass, including a meal of questionable mushrooms". These lands are assumed to have been conquered since numerous playing cards and the Cheshire Cat are residents of Fabletown.Alice, the Mad Hatter, the Dormouse and the March Hare, the Walrus and the Carpenter (and the oysters they seem not to have eaten yet) were held prisoner at the Golden Boughs Retirement Village. Humpty Dumpty is also a prisoner and a violet/pink caterpillar (which may or may not be the Caterpillar) is shown eating a leaf while Humpty Dumpty tries to convince Jack Horner to let him escape with the others. The Vorpal Sword is now Fabletown property, and has been referred to as the Jabberwock's bane. This could imply that Tulgey Wood has been conquered as well.
Another land of interest is Americana, the Fable version of America, appearing mainly in the Jack of Fables series.
The Great White North – Canada and The Arctic.
Kansas – Referred to in Cinderella: Fables Are Forever. The former home of Dorothy Gale Kansas is presumably located in Americana, the Fable version of America.
Significant places in Americana are Big City and Salem located in the Colonies,Steamboat City located in Steamboat,Speakeasy located in Gangland,the Grand Canyon created by Paul Bunyan and unnamed cities in Lone Star, The Frontier and the Great White North.Kansas is referred to in Cinderella: Fables Are Forever and was the former home of Dorothy Gale
As could be expected from the Homelands, things are not so normal as they should be. The Idyll area seems to be populated entirely by zombies, all being loyal to the Bookburner (who is the head librarian of Americana, the library being located in Idyll), while the Great White North seems to represent how America views Canada and Alaska, as it is very clean, ice hockey being the biggest form of amusement and, according to Jack, having horrible bacon.
Untouched by The Adversary's forces, Americana possesses advanced technology compared with the conquered European worlds where the absence of modern arms is crucial to sustain the ruling system. Vehicles and appliances seen are cars from the 1920s, steamtrains, various firearms and even modern household appliances. Besides, the only known way to enter Americana is by dressing as a vagrant and jumping on a train.
It is also quite possible that other areas are near or on Americana that resemble ancient Mesoamerica or Latin America.
Keep at the End of the World
Keep at the End of the World is from East of the Sun and West of the Moon; this was the setting for The Last Castle, where the last Fable refugees escaped from to the Mundy world.
Camelot appears in flashbacks in the story arc The Good Prince. According to the ghost of Sir Lancelot, the legend of Camelot and its fabled King Arthur set the standard of "true chivalry" for all of Christendom and its legend touched much of the pagan worlds beyond. Lancelot's betrayal would eventually lead to Camelot's downfall.
Kingdom of Haven
The Kingdom of Haven is the home of Flycatcher. These lands were shown being taken in 1001 Nights of Snowfall. Recently, he has returned there with his new army of ghosts and has set it up as a place of refuge for anyone wishing to escape the Adversary's control. He has become a consistent thorn in the Adversary's side, having defeated much of the Adversary's forces, including turning all of the Empire's wooden soldiers into a new enchanted grove, taking out the Empire's best fighters.
Before the Adversary's invasion, it used to be Flycatcher's kingdom. After the invasion, it was abandoned for a long time, before Flycatcher and his companions returned to reclaim it. Thanks to Weyland and the other Fables' help, Flycatcher was able to quickly rebuild his kingdom before the Empire invaded again. Flycatcher was able to effectively defend his kingdom, thanks to his newly gained magical powers. He managed to effectively break the Geppetto's power of his Wooden Soldiers by causing them to sprout into trees during the battle, creating a new Sacred Grove in his kingdom.
Haven remains a place of peace and safety for all it's inhabitants thanks to Flycatcher's ruling. Meant to be a safe space for Fables within the Homelands itself, it stands as proof that a kingdom can strive on trust and community, as opposed to the Homelands now ruled by fear and violence.
After the war, Flycatcher made an offer for any Fables who live in the Farm to move to Haven.
When Mr. Dark managed to find the location of the Farm, all Fables evacuated to Haven.
The Lands of Beauty and Beast
The Lands of Beauty and the Beast are assumed taken because Beast refers to their lands as "forever lost in the Homelands", in the Legends in Exile story arc.
Toad Hall is from Wind in the Willows and is directly mentioned as being taken in 1001 Nights of Snowfall. Badger, Toad and Mole all escaped, and many assume Stinky the Badger on the Farm is in fact the same character as Mr. Badger.
Atlantis is the underwater kingdom of mermaids and was shown being conquered in 1001 Nights of Snowfall. The only known survivor is Mersey Dotes, now turned into a mermaid.
The Red City was mentioned by the Snow Queen. Red City Plague originates from this City. Red City Plague might possibly allude to Edgar Allan Poe's Masque of the Red Death.
Bald Mountain is from Modest Mussorgsky's play. Directly mentioned in Jack of Fables. It is home to Chernobog, one of the Devils Jack made a deal with to prolong his life.
Rome is the Fabled version of the capital of Italy. Incitatus was a member of its senate.
The lands of the "civilized apes"
The lands of the "civilized apes" appeared in flashbacks in the Jack of Fables story Jack 'n' Apes. These lands were conquered by the Adversary's forces.
The Hundred Acre Wood
In the Jack of Fables story Jack 'n' Apes, a character looking remarkably similar to Winnie the Pooh (but drawn slightly differently, as Winnie the Pooh is currently under copyright) can be seen in flashbacks from the Homelands, barbecuing marshmallows with the sock monkey Saunders in what appears to be the Hundred Acre Wood. They were described as living in "blissful simplicity". In the works of author A. A. Milne, Sanders is the name of the person who resided at Pooh's home prior to Pooh making it his house, and Winnie the Pooh and several other characters from the books were based on the stuffed toys of Milne's son. Saunders and his friends were driven from their homes when the Adversary invaded, and Saunders ended up in Africa in the mundane world, along with the rest of the "civilized apes" that Jack Horner claims to have met. Winnie the Pooh and Piglet apparently made it to the Farm. Both make an obscure appearance in Fables: In part five of the Animal Farm story arc, when the foiled revolution threatens to flare up again, Pooh and Piglet appears in two panels, from a distance when Boy Blue tells everyone to move back, and then from behind in the following panel.
Prospero's Island is the Island which is the setting of William Shakespeare's the Tempest. It is located in the Homelands version of the Mediterranean Sea.Prospero and Sycorax are members of Fabletown's 13th Floor of magicians and spell-casters.
