* Creator/TerryPratchett never got round to fleshing out Howondaland, the {{Discworld}}'s Africa, to the same degree of detil he gave to, say, its Australia. It has been revealed that at the time of his death, he was at least blocking out a novel called ''The Dark Incontinent'' that would have covered things "African". It is possible that a few snippets from this never-to-be-completed-work were used in ''The Compleat Discworld Atlas'', where countries such as Urabewe, S'Belinde, and "the Howondalandian Kingdoms" are briefly mentioned, largely as expies of Black Africa. One town called "Smithville" carries a tantalising hint of there being room for a White colony in Africa...

* ''Series/MacGyver'' featured several such countries over the course of its run. The country Kambezi from one episode of this show is unusual in that at one point it was actually shown on a map (it was supposedly in the vicinity of South Africa).

* The ''TabletopGame/MutantsAndMasterminds'' FreedomCity setting has Dakana, which the source material says is located "deep in sub-Saharan Africa, at the crossroads of Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, and the Congo". Different versions of this nation show up in the [[AlternateUniverse alternate universes]] of related to the setting. By default, it is a unique take on the trope as the leader is a [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething super who actually cares about his people]], and the nations itself is stated to be wealthy and technologically advanced thanks to [[{{Unobtainium}} the Daka crystals]] that they have a monopoly on. (This is a blatant CaptainErsatz of Wakanda in the Marvel universe, as described in the comics section of the page.)

Bulungis are often populated by a mix of white and black residents, the former of whom usually speak with vaguely British and/or Afrikaner accents. The country's name is usually [[AsLongAsItSoundsForeign composed of simple syllables]] that are stereotypically "African"-sounding.
