* The 1981 French movie ''Le Professionnel'', starring Jean-Paul Belmondo, has his character going on a secret mission to Malagawi in order to assasinate its Idi Amin-esque PresidentForLife. It definitely earns a distinction for laziness in invoking the trope by the way its filmmakers merely took the existing country of Malawi and added a "-ga-" in the middle.

Added DiffLines:

* The Wakanda of the MarvelCinematicUniverse is an unusual version of this trope. It is a sub-Saharan country, but ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' shows Wakanda on a map, and it is very isolationist, so it likely doesn't have a lot of white residents.

In many cases, the Bulungi is in the midst of the transition process from [[PeoplesRepublicOfTyranny its former sort of government]] to a more democratic type of rule, [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism though this might not be going well for them]]. If there is a dictator, expect him to be a well educated man who MajoredInWesternHypocrisy.

* In ''Series/RumpoleOfTheBailey'', the titular English barrister is contacted by one of his former pupils, now a politician in the West African country Narenga, formerly the British colony New Somerset. The pupil is charged with murder and wants his old pupil-master, a leading criminal defense barrister, to represent him. Rumpole has to deal not only with the fraught politics of the case (as the trial could spark a civil war between the country's two main ethnic groups), but also the frustrating absence of a jury (and, therefore, a heavily biased judge).
