Jump City (ジャンプ・シティ, Janpu Shiti) is the location of the base of operations of the Teen Titans and Team Prime, and the location where most of the episodes at least partially take place in. Jump City is protected by the Teen Titans and additionally Team Prime against threats of all scales internal or external, yet in How Long is Forever? it is protected solely by Nightwing, a future incarnation of Robin.
Based in America's West Coast, its population appears to rank in the millions, according to the Transformer Titans Go! series, and it is portrayed as a modern urbanized center with pizza shops, parks, businesses, houses, islands and busy streets. The creators of the show have stated the city is similar to a 60's style of a city in the 22nd century. It also appears to be a combination of Boston, San Francisco and Detroit, with the city showing styles of these three cities.
