The Last City must be in the Southern Hemisphere, said dwntwn_dine_ent_dist, because shadows cast in the Tower by the Sun move counterclockwise. On an equinox, it's fairly trivial to figure out the latitude of one's location: Just subtract the altitude of the sun from 90 degrees. Based on a screenshot, dwntwn_dine_ent_dist concluded that the Tower sits at about the 29th parallel south. That means The Last City could only exist in South America (Chile/Argentina/Uruguay/Brazil), Africa (South Africa/Lesotho) or Australia.

As you can see above, tall mountains are visible from the balconies of the Tower, which rules out Uruguay, Brazil, South Africa and Australia. That leaves the Andes Mountains, which run down the western spine of South America. At 29 degrees south latitude on that continent, said dwntwn_dine_ent_dist, The Last City would roughly be located between La Serena, Chile, and La Rioja, Argentina — likely somewhere in Chile, since the higher mountains around The Last City stand to the east of the Tower.
