* Non-villain example - The Blue Clan, Scepter 4 in ''Anime/{{K}}'' has the Yuishiki System, which can be used to monitor everything in the country. They need a warrant to enable it, though, and when they do - when the Red King's RoaringRampageOfRevenge is threatening to take the whole city down with the killer they're all trying to find - the system turns up no results for the killer, who's been made an UnPerson by an even more powerful Clan.

*The Combine from ''Videogame/{{HalfLife2}}'' employ Scanners that moniter and photograph citizens out on the street. There's even a combat synth variation that can additionally drop hopper mines and locate targets for other units including the enormous Striders.

* ''{{Exalted}}'' has the Orb and the Scepter, two mighty artifacts that can be (and one of them is) used to control the population of a great city-state by making them perfectly obedient to the laws and orders of the ruler. Those who disobey get punished (based on the severity of their crime) by pain, agony or horrifying death, and all of this is inescapable. The population even has a magical eye-shaped mark on their left hand, and there are proclamations of "His eye is always upon you" everywhere in the city. There are also laws on dress code, with bright colors being forbidden for anyone who is not a memeber of the aristocracy. Veeeery creepy...

* In ''{{TabletopGame/Eberron}}'' the country of Zilargo has this in full effect. However the place is a [[CityOfSpies CountryOfSpies]], so you spy on your neighbors, your neighbors spy on you, both of you spy on the shopkeepers, the shopkeepers spy on you, your neighbors, and their neighbors, [[OverlyLongGag all the above are spied on by the]] SceretPolice which are pretty much regular police but they like to creep around. It gets to the point where the Gnomes of the country relax when everyone is spying on them and get very paranoid when no one is watching them.

* All the [[MegaCorp Corps]] in ''[[TabletopGame/{{Netrunner}} Android: Netrunner]]'' fulfil this to some extent, but it is NBN who specialise in it. Flavor-wise, they control over half of the world's media and have a monopoly over network infrastructure. This translates to them having a much easier time gaining information on the runner, 'tagging' them and then either attacking them directly or pushing through agendas while the runner is trying to remove tags.
