"A resident of Edwin Abbott's fictional Flatland." By definition this seems as though it can't be used without reference to the one specific fictional universe. Equinox 08:26, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

I think we could generalise to "an observer in a two-dimensional universe" because the word is used and understood by those unfamiliar with the works of Edwin Abbott. I think I could find sufficient durably archived citations [1]. Dbfirs 07:40, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
