* The above page image is a good example. Doubly so when you consider the racial situation at the time.

* The above page image is a good example. Doubly so when you consider the racial situation at the time.[[note]]It should be known that the reason why there was a line of African-Americans was not due the Great Depression but from the Great Ohio flood of 1937. The more you know.[[/note]]

* ''ComicBook/RogueTrooper: Quartz Zone Massacre'' - The opening scene is a Nort propaganda video boasting about how much the Southers have been beaten. At the end of the scene, the camera pans out to show the TV is lying in the middle of a battlefield in which the Norts were creamed.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{WALL-E}}'' does this with holographic billboards on Earth, and uses them to detail the movie's backstory. Pixar then took it UpToEleven by giving Buy-N-Large it's own functional website, which expands on said backstory and is packed with black humor/social commentary worthy of TheOnion.

* The publicity ad for Shell Beach in ''Film/DarkCity.'' It is one of the few happy and bright images in the entire movie, where the city is [[CaptainObvious dark]] and run down. It gets truly dissonant because while the main character and his uncle remember growing up and living there, no one knows how to get there. Turns out [[spoiler: the [[RealityWarper reality warping]] aliens have implanted FakeMemories of the place in everyone, ''it never existed!'']]

* Modern [[TheNewRussia Russia]] ''IS'' this trope.
** Has anyone else seen the {{DVD}}s you can get of old Russian propaganda cartoons? Try watching "Plus Electrification Now" while also picturing Russia of the 70s. Ouch.
** Turning propaganda into HypocriticalHumor this way became a canonical part of the RussianHumour.
---> A kindergarten teacher expounds on how cool it is to live in Soviet Union. One of kids starts to cry.
---> '''governess''': What's up, Vovochka?
---> '''kid''': I want to go to Soviet Unio-o-on!
* As long as we're talking about a real life section, North Korea beats Russia, [[http://bigthink.com/strange-maps/218-koreas-dark-half hands]] [[strike:[[http://www.filination.com/blog/2006/07/29/a-peek-into-north-korea/ down]]]] [[http://www.north-korea-travel.com/north-korea-information.html raised in salute to the wise leader Kim Jong Il!]]
