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.

* A major plotline in ''Series/TheNewsroom'' concerns U.S.-caused riots in the fictional African country Equatorial Kundu.


Added DiffLines:

* "Equatorial Kundu" appears to be a go-to name for Creator/AaronSorkin: a major plotline in ''Series/TheNewsroom'' concerns U.S.-caused riots in the fictional African country of...Equatorial Kundu.


Added DiffLines:

* 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).

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', Lois Lane goes to Nairomi to interview a war chief / terrorist chief. The name is most probably inspired by Nairobi, the capital and largest city of Kenya.

* 'ThePhantom'' is set in Bangalla, a nation of precisely this type. Bangalla did handle the transition to the post-Colonial age better than most, and the capital of Morristown is a modern city, but there are still deep jungles and parched savannahs a-plenty.

* Bangalla, homeland of ''ComicStrip/ThePhantom'', somewhere on the east coast of Africa. It was an English colony when the series started in the 1930s, and transitioned to self-rule in the 1960s.

* The Squee-Jee Islands, off the coast of equatorial Africa, in ''ComicStrip/TheKatzenjammerKids''. Although the King was rather authoritative, and insisted on wearing a traditional grass skirt, it was protrayed as a semi-modern society in the 30's through 50's.

* The setting of ''[[VideoGame/FarCry Far Cry 2]]'' is unnamed, but its two named regions (Leboa-Seko and Bowa-Seko) are like this, though they includes multiple environments one might expect in Africa (jungle, desert, savannah) in a very small space. The country's corrupt monarchy was ousted from power and now two factions, the APR and the UFLL, are locked in a civil war.
