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).

* Early in the 20th century, Ireland attempted to break free from Great Britain, only for it to be divided in 1922 between the Catholic-dominated 26-county Southern Ireland (later the Irish Free State, and then simply Ireland) and the Protestant-dominated six-county UsefulNotes/NorthernIreland.[[note]] Only two of Northern Ireland's traditional counties Down and Antrim have Protestant majorities today. The other four Armagh, Derry/Londonderry, Fermanagh, and Tyrone have Catholic majorities (and the latter two had Catholic majorities even in 1922)--on the other hand, Counties Antrim and Down are by far the most populous in Northern Ireland (together holding about 63.5% of the entire population of the region), and Protestants retain a bare plurality in Northern Ireland as a whole (possibly slightly larger when persons refusing to identify have to choose).[[/note]] The latter's situation looks to be slowly inverting with recent power-sharing agreements.

* ''Fanfic/CodeGeassMegiddo'': Basically what happened to the Soviet Union after the EU conquered it in the titular [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII Soviet War]]. As a result of (Western) European weariness toward further Russian aggression, the former USSR was broken up into much smaller states[[note]]which correspond to real world federal subjects anyway[[/note]] and annexed, with everything past the Urals now referred to as Far Eastern Europe (or just the Far East).
