* In ''VideoGame/MaceTheDarkAge'', this happens all over Europe and the Middle-East due to Christianity and Islam never being founded to unify their countries, leaving them fragmented between countless tribes and pagan faiths. This is enforced by the Covenant of the Seven, who are using DivideAndConquer to leave them weakened to their control.

** To a lesser extent but greater damage, the Imperium of Man. The predating empire was shattered when a galaxy-wide warp storm appeared out of nowhere and stayed for centuries, the galactic equivalent of every mile of ocean developing century-lasting hurricanes, preventing communication or trade between planets. Not helping matters was the Chaos plot to give the gift of psychics to unsuspecting humans, then laugh as they inadvertently summoned demonic invasions unless they were unfairly persecuted by witch hunts, thereby culling most forward-thinking technologically-advanced healthily-tolerant planets (with the only major exceptions being the planets that became HIGHLY susceptible to chaos when they put these psykers in charge and formed chaos-magic academies). This obliterated Earth, as it had become so polluted that it imported everything and went the path of Mad Max on steroids. Then the Emperor, an immortal PhysicalGod (but one who DOESN'T consider himself a god due to being a mad science experiment gone right) built the first Space Marines, conquered and restored Earth, developed technology and starfleets, and waited for the storm to finally end (which was actually a bad thing because it heralded the birth of the new chaos goddess of lust). Then the Imperium began a great crusade, dominating millions of worlds and generally uniting most of humanity in the galaxy. And then, the chaos gods utterly won the Horus Heresy, shattering the Empire by dividing its fleets, crippling its Emperor, and indoctrinating all of humanity into a gods-worshiping mega-cult. The Imperium loses dozens of resource-rich planets every day to Chaos, Rebels, Tau, Genestealers, raving bands of Orks and Eldar and Necrons and whatever Games Workshop can come up with, and mostly its own BeliefMakesYouStupid KnightTemplar genocides.

The reason they haven't tried to reunify is because Pandora's Box released some kind of energy that altered the minds of everyone nearby, which included the three nations' future leaders, causing them to become more aggressive and paranoid; [[spoiler:eventually it turns out that all three are secretly developing monsters and Kamen Riders to use as weapons for their attempts to invade each other]].

* Germany, to varying degrees in history. It spent several centuries as at least 300 states under [[TheHolyRomanEmpire one theoretical state]], which decreased to around 20, both legally and in practice (though bound in an alliance), followed by a shrinking number until there were two left (as far as Germans of the time saw it). After a short period of unification (75 years), it was split in two during the Cold War, then reunified in 1990 (though Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Austria, and German speaking parts of Switzerland, France, Italy, Belgium and Denmark remain outside Germany).
