Greyhawk is a fictional world for the role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons. It is the earliest of the D&D universes, and much of the rules design occurred in conjunction with game play by Gary Gygax and others in and around Castle Greyhawk and its dungeons. It remains popular with hardcore gamers.

Within the game world, the Free City of Greyhawk is a free city in the Flanaess, originally under the domination of the Kingdom of Aerdy.

In the Greyhawk universe, the planet Oerth has four continents, but only the Flanaess, the eastern part of the continent of Oerik, is home to "enlightened humanity".

While the Greyhawk world is primarily medieval, it includes many sly references to 20th-century culture, such as characters named "King Burger" and "General Public", and "B-Men" monsters that are half-hornet and half-government agent.
