* ''Series/TheThickOfIt'' essentially presents the British government as this to the rest of Britain; a bunch of cloistered, out-of-touch technocrats, policy wonks and career politicos working in a nice, expensive glass-walled office who are almost all both slightly afraid of and scathingly contemptuous towards the ordinary people they supposedly serve and represent.

* ''Film/InTheLoop'', the film spin-off from ''Series/TheThickOfIt'' (see below) continues the show's depiction of the British government as basically this to the whole of Britain. It's best illustrated through the contrast between the Minister of International Development foolishly involving himself in grand matters of world-shaking geopolitical intrigue while, back in his home constituency, one of his constituents just wants him to do something about the wall of his office, which is collapsing into his mum's back garden. [[spoiler: This ends up screwing the Minister when his political opponents in the former matter use his complete disinterest in doing anything about the latter matter to bury him in the media.]]

* ''VideoGame/SpaceStation13'' subverts this trope. Yes, the Command/Administration section is mostly staffed by [[ObstructiveBureaucrat Obstructive Bureaucrats]]. However, most of said bureaucrats have universal or near-universal access. Therefore, things going ''really'' [[AlienInvasion so]][[TheMutiny uth]] often results in some pencil-pusher [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass breaking into the armory and going full Rambo]].
