* In ''Warhammer40000'', the Tau Empire has a system of arranged breeding. Couples are selected on the basis of genetic advantage and sent a summons from a "Procreation Committee" to spend a day together trying to concieve. After conception, both partners will go their seperate ways, and any children from the union will be raised communally by trainers of their caste (though parents may take an interest in and visit the children).

* In ''Literature/TheHaremGames'' constestants are married by an 'Omiai' treated as a market where the teenage males pick 6-15 brides to help them in the upcoming battle royale fight to the death. The brides have no say in the matter. Alex is unusual because during the selection ceremony, he was bedridden as a result of a horrific, unprovoked beating, where he couldn't retaliate, and his brides were not only chosen for him, but most of them ''actively petitioned'' for the role.

* Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar series: The reasons and political maneuvering behind the various forms of ArrangedMarriage among the nobility are a theme of ''Closer to Home''. In an attempt to resolve a [[FeudingFamilies feud between two noble houses]], the Prince commands that House Raeylen marry their only son to House Chendlar's oldest daughter. This backfires badly when it turns out Chendlar's ''youngest'' daughter has fallen hard for the son, and he manipulates her in a scheme to kill off both families and inherit their lands.

* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'' fanfic series ''[[http://higherarrowsfic.livejournal.com/24262.html Five Loaves of Bread]]''[[note]]Link requires joining the comm to read.[[/note]] includes this. The Capitol arranges everything about its subjects' laws -- where they live, where they work, and if and who they marry. It's technically possible to indicate a preference either way, but the the government is entirely free to ignore it when it suits them.

* In DavidWeber's ''Literature/TheWarGods'' series, the King of the Sothoii has the power to force marriages in cases of nobles who don't have a male heir. It's seen as a last resort, admittedly hard on only-daughters, but worth it in order to insure that the Kingdom isn't destabilized by having important lands and titles fall into dispute.

* Most of the plot of ''Manga/TwinStarExorcists'' revolves around the ArrangedMarriage between Rokuro and Benio. The reason is that an oracle predicted their child would be The Miko, [[SecondComing the reincarnation of Abe No Seimei that would wipe out the impurities once and for all]]. [[spoiler: The fact that all attempts during the previous thousand years ended up [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy killed by said Impurities before they could have children]] shows pretty well that whoever decided it, they didn't really care for their safety.]]
