** A certain secessionist sentiment remains, however, in modern Germany as well. Bavaria, which has historically an autonomous kingdom until the rise of Weimar Germany, currently enjoys political semi-autonomy inside the German Federation as the "Bavarian Free State" (having, among other things, its own constitution), which (moderately) popularised the idea of an independent Bavarian Republic outside the federation and the EU (whereas others would even get back the monarchy too); at least one political party has been pushing this agenda for the better half of a century.

** After this has happened repeatedly in Italy's history, which witnessed the creation and fall of ''dozens'' of independent states every couple of decades, modern Italy still isn't safe from the secessionist popularity. South Tyrol (at least) used to be a possible candidate for secession, as it was only obtained (relatively) recently from Austria Hungary after WW1, and is thus ended up being German-speaking and Austrian-cultured. On top of it, she already enjoys semi-autonomy after a brief 'uprising' in 1961 ([[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Night_of_Fire casulaties: 37 electricity pylons]]). Veneto, the region surrounding Venice, is one notable example of a region that still sees active campaigns for sovereignty by right-wing and nationalistic groups, particularly since it ranks (unsurprisingly) amongst the wealthiest places in Italy. .

* ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'': Implied in "Who Mourns for Adonais?", when Chekov sarcastically calls himself the Czar of ''all the Russias''. Presumably this refers to historical events, since even that early on Earth was confirmed to be totally unified under one government.

*** Also, Krakow and Lwow joined the rest of newly-independent Poland (though the latter would become part of Ukraine after WWII) and Transylvania joined with the rest of Romania (which at the time also included most of modern-day Moldova).

* In a somewhat logical conclusion of the events of UsefulNotes/MikhailGorbachev's reign, USSR balkanized itself in 1991, thus creating TheGreatPoliticsMessUp. Ever since, several of the USSR's breakaway states balkanized even more. Abkhazia and South Ossetia broke away from Georgia; Transnistria from Moldova; Crimea from Ukraine (formerly part of Russia, transferred to the Ukrainian SSR in TheFifties, attempted to break away in 1993/1994, reintegrated into Ukraine and given status as an Autonomous Republic and then annexed by Russia after a controversial referendum in 2014), Nagorno-Karabakh from Azerbaijan, etc. As the 2008 South Ossetian war has shown, a large number of these separations have been violent.
