* Most people have the stereotype that all of New York IS Manhattan and/or New York City, despite NYC being only a very small geographical portion of the state, with such different politics, economy, ecology, attitude, and most other aspects of life that many upstaters wish the two could become separate states.

* Most people have the stereotype that all of New York IS Manhattan and/or New York City, despite NYC being only a very small geographical portion of the state, with such different politics, economy, ecology, attitude, and most other aspects of life that many upstaters wish the two could become separate states. The idea of NYC being separate from the rest of the state came to a head during the U.S. Civil War. Democratic Mayor Fernando Wood proposed that New York City should become a sovereign city-state called " Free City of Tri-Insula" and live off the import tariffs. The idea was too radical for even the time but the city remained against the war and the draft, leading to the bloody New York Draft Riots.

* The human territory of ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', sometimes referred to as "The Walled City" (it's actually the size of a small country and is ruled by a monarchy, but functions more or less like a city-state), is the ''only'' land that humans still control. The government is totally comfortable with sending unarmed, untrained citizens to "reclaim land from the Titans" in order to maintain a comfortable population density.

* Vault 101 in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}''. It and the other "Vaults" were constructed to shelter a human population safely underground in the event of a nuclear war. In theory, as radiation levels decreased the Vaults would open to the outside world and the survivors would rebuild civilization, but Vault 101 remained closed for two hundred years, and the Overseers tell the population that the surface is still inhabitable. Whether or not it remains a CityInABottle depends on the player's decisions.

There were ''several'' expeditions that gradually expanded the knowledge of the outside world (that and radroaches). Eventually James brought the Lone Wanderer there to raise them in saftey before he had to leave 19 years later.[[/note]]

* ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVII'': A major supernatural cataclysm ripped the world AND its spirit apart, meaning the various island cities ripped apart from the former continents don't even remember that a few decades ago, there were others. For all they know, there has only been their island, the sea, the sky, ''and nothing else''. The protagonist's job is to fix the screwed up problems that each island has developed so they can stitch their world back together.
