Bullworth is situated in the New England area (apparently in the state of New Hampshire according to developers) in the United States of America. It exists in the same fictional universe as the Grand Theft Auto and Manhunt series.
The specific GTA Universe in which Bullworth is located in is uncertain, as it has been referenced in both the 3D and HD Universes. Because of this, it is widely agreed that Bullworth exists in both universes.
- Bullworth Academy is the town's independent boarding school for the nation's children, and is the main setting within the town.
- Bullworth Town is the commercial borough of the city, housing many of the town's shops and the town hall.
- Old Bullworth Vale is a borough, which has two main areas. There is a shopping section, smaller than Bullworth Town, and a residential area, which houses many of the wealthier residents of the town.
- New Coventry is the run-down, urban-poor borough, consisting of mainly tenement housing. There are few shops, housing the poorer residents of the town.
- Blue Skies Industrial Park is the industrial borough of the city and is home to the Townies clique. The area houses the poorest residents of the town and mainly consists of factories and industrial buildings.
- The Happy Volts Asylum is the city's asylum and houses many patients.
