Elmore, CA, USA (pop. 20,000) is a fictional town in The Amazing World of Gumball, and is the setting for most of the episodes. Though it generally functions like a normal city, Elmore is unique in that almost everything in the city has the potential to come to life.

Elmore, like other minor metropolitans, has its own financial district, park districts, residential districts, and an interstate highway running through it.
