It's too bad the 2D world didn't reference Flatland.
But it did. There was the "Bonneville Salt Flatlands" near the end -- a reference to both Flatland and the Bonneville Salt Flats, a popular location for testing super-fast vehicles and breaking land speed records. And really, the whole "Flatbush" portion of the story implicitly owed a lot to Edwin Abbott.
