I always imagined the setting to look like it was from England, i imagined it all in the UK. But i can imagine it being in the U.S now you mention it, but still the characters i can just imagine some of them being English, but some of them American. I think it would be good if they had that mix. Tally i always imagined as English though, and David. Shay and Zane though, they seem more American. I don't know why, just my imagination :)

I always thought because of the climate, a little to the left and above Florida.

Well, the cities in Prettytime are entirely new, not current cities.
But I agree, I think the Rusty Ruins near Tally's city are Seattle. 'Cause that looks like the space needle to me too.

The shape of the American continent looks pretty much the same, at least on the western coast, to me (on the map in Bogus to Bubbly). Seattle would still be above sea level. And plate tectonics? Except for earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, etc., they wouldn't have much effect.  Plates move a few centimeters a year, all right, but it would still take millions or billions of years for any significant change to the landmasses we know. This future is like...300 years?

Hopefully you wouldn't see any long-deceased New Yorkers.

Me and my friend are pretty sure that Diego is like San Diego, CA.  :)

It's definitely Seattle for Tally's city and San Diego for Diego and the U.S. will look different because supposedly the continents drift and right now there are subvergent plates on the coasts. (plates going under other plates) plus global warming
