New Springfield was a town located on Earth West 1,217,756, in a stepwise version of Maine, situated on a low hill.
The forests around the town were made up of mostly evergreen trees, some of which are varients of those on the Datum Earth, such as Laurel, Walnut, Dogwood and dwarf sequoia. They also had climbers such as honeysuckle, strangler figs and some grape vines.
Most people in the town didn't farm, as it wasn't necessary, apart from potatoes (for stepper boxes) and sheep.
They did not use clocks, so they were unable to know exactly what the time was.
