Creating A Map from a Fictional Map

I have a small project in mind and any help would be helpful.

I want to ultimately have a map of a video game multiplayer stage with various data points on it.

My first hurdle comes with the map itself. Because the map is fictional, it doesn't follow normal projection rules. For all intents and purposes the map actually flat. My problems are thus:

How do I set distances on my image. I have in game measurements between specific points in meters, hoping that I could use those to as a reference.

And

How to set up a coordinate system to allow me to create data sets with coordinates to automatically import point data

if anyone can point me in the right direction, I would be very grateful. Thank you.
