You are in the fictional 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital (M*A*S*H) near the border of North and South Korea. The actual distances in your riddle may not be correct geographically but probably were taken from a sign in the series that read, among other things:

"Tokyo 259 miles
San Francisco 5428 miles
Decatur 9412 miles
Death 6116 miles
Burbank 5610 miles"

The set (and signpost) were partially restored earlier this year.
