* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer3TiberiumWars'' background reveals that the Brotherhood of Nod have become the last hint of civilization and order in the devastated Yellow Zones of Earth, for the people living there (about 80% of the human population) they are seen as the good guys, those who bring infrastructure, food, medicine, security and hope to the masses, also, [[VillainWithGoodPublicity they look really cool]].

* In the film ''PansLabyrinth'', the Spanish fascist government of Franco is shown issuing bread rations to the starving peasants who remain loyal to the regime. It should be noted this was pretty much dead on accurate; to help deal with the fairly popular Republicans, and to a lesser extent the communists, Franco's government used food rations as a way to gain public support.

* The Earth Sphere, and, probably, Venus and Jupiter (of which we just know too little) are basically this in {{Gunnm}}. Populations of the Orbital habitats, Moon cities, and probably even [[MarketBasedTitle Salem/Typhares]] are certainly well-off, functionally immortal and generally content, happily ignoring the fact that it comes from ruthless exploitation of downtrodden populations of Earth and Mars (and their own underclass, whose existence is generally hushed), involuntary MindControl and general fascistic attitude of LADDER council, as far as they are fed and still get the [[TournamentArc Z.O.T.T.]] [[BloodSport and motorball]] to watch. [[BigBad Aga]] [[EvilChancellor Mbadi]] certainly has no trobles into [[TheManBehindTheMan getting anyone he wishes]] elected as a [[UnwittingPawn Ladder Chairman]].

* DoctorDoom generally runs Latveria quite well, and the people know it. How well [[DependingOnTheAuthor varies from story to story]], but many portray his continued use of this trope as more like treating his subjects like pets than actual humans.

** Simply put, there is peace in a sense and there is enough food to keep everyone alive. [[AnarchyIsChaos If the government is toppled, mayhem will ensue]] and nobody wants that, even if things may eventually become better -- and [[FullCircleRevolution there's no guarantee that they will.]]
