The home of the BFG and the other giants. The giants are nocturnal. It is a desert with blue rocks and the only living things (besides giants) are snozzcumbers. However in the 1989 animated film, Giant Country is located in what appears to be another dimension or an alien planet, rather than another country. There are a variety of creatures that live in Giant Country. These include; mouse like creatures and dinosaurs. The sky is orange with two suns, one yellow and one green. A vast nebula can be seen at night, and the landscape is dotted with ruins. Meanwhile in the 2016 adaptation, giant country takes the form of an island covered in rolling green hills, and rocky cliffs, quiet unlike the desert the novel and animated film portray it as. There are signs that humans once lived there, as evidenced by the various man made objects that lie abandoned and scattered about the place. There is also a large ring-shaped rock formation not far from the BFG's cave.

Locations

  • BFG's Cave.

A tremendous mountain with a secret entrance guarded by a boulder. Despite this makeshift security, the Bloodbottler/Fleshlumpeater got in once. Contains the BFG's home. The main cave is his living quarters with a bed, a table, a coat rack, a sink, cupboards and a machine for dispensing Frobscottle. The mountain is actually a dormant volcano where the actual core is where BFG stores dreams and disposes of bad ones. However this seems to be a very little used work space as the vast majority of dreams he has caught are stored in an enormous cupboard near his living quarters.

  • The great desert and Giant's platue.

Where the man eating Giants live and sleep. They sleep during the day unless woken by the BFG and wake up at night to go to Earth to eat people. Sometimes when woken up during the day they pass the time by throwing the BFG about like a volley ball.

In the book the BFG uses a nightmare/Trogglehumper about Jack to start a fight between the giants.

The humans find the giants sleeping in the platue and tie all of them up except the Fleshlumpeater.

The great desert outside the immediate area of BFG's cave and the platue is described as lifeless except Snozzcumber plants. However in the animated film various creatures live in giant country including red mice with striped green and black tails and dinosaur-like creatures.

  • Dream Country.

Where dreams live. It's description varies. In the book it is a foggy place on the other side of the desert. In the animated film it is a giant hand shaped rock with a cave inside. Passing through the chambers leads to magical column of sparkles (Dream magic?) that visitors jump into to be transported to a place with yellow platforms where dreams live. In the latest film it is a vast tree with dreams living in its branches.

  • The vortex

They only way in and out of Giant country. In the animated film Sophie is taken to Giant county through here. The path to the platue appears to be treacherous as the BFG has to expertly leap across abysses and onto unsteady platforms.
