Teufort (also known as "America's Gravel Basket"[1], "The City That Never Seeps"[2], "The Big Gravel"[3], and "Manhattan of the Badlands"[1]) is a fictional town, located in the Badlands region in the American Southwest. The town itself adjoins the 2Fort facilities. Some historical events related to the Gravel Wars take place in the environs and institutions of the community. Teufort is also the city that held the trials as well as the attempted hangings of RED Spy and Scout. The town also has a large landfill in the center of the town blocking multiple businesses such as Giuseppe's Pizza. The residents accused the mercenaries of turning the school into a parking lot and many other things. These were in fact the major's imbecilic doings, the mayor in his ignorance using alegal methods in running the town, in executions, and in education.

He later renamed the town to "Two Farts" in 1847 during an incident with a group of teenage bullies where he was forced to. Huggins, whom was afraid to return the establishment's name to Hugginsville due to his incident, renamed the town to "Teufort"[4].
