** Trantor, capital of the Galactic Empire, is apparently completely covered by urban areas by the time of the ''{{Foundation}}'' series. Until it's [[PlanetLooters sacked and looted]] into an agrarian world once the Empire falls.

** Parodying the deconstruction - even David Morgan-Mar knew he was running things into the ground - the last IW strip to touch on this "changes channels" halfway through to the Pirate storyline, where the captain [[VisualPun is flogging a dead horse]].

* ''Webcomic/IrregularWebcomic'' spends a number of Star Wars strips deconstructing the idea, such as [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/386.html food]], [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/393.html sewage]], [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/396.html power]], [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/417.html heat output]], [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/420.html space]] and [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/434.html cooling]]. Unsurprisingly, ''Webcomic/DarthsAndDroids'' also touches on the issue.

* In the Film/SuperMarioBros [[TheMovie Movie]], Koopa's globe of the [[HumanAliens dinosaur-ruled]] [[AlternateHistory parallel Earth]] includes a stylized depiction of a country-sized city as an island in a [[SingleBiomePlanet worldwide desert]] ([[OneWorldOrder which he counts as under his rule]]). As far as logistics, there's a severe shortage of food, clean air, and water, but it's largely blamed on Koopa's 20-year regime (and is the driving force behind his planned conquest of ''our'' Earth).

Sometimes referred to as a planet city, world city (though "world city" has also been used to mean other things), completely urbanized world, omniopolis / omnopolis, or [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ecumenopolis ecumenopolis]]. While most examples are recent, the concept dates as far back as the nineteenth century work of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Lake_Harris Thomas Lake Harris]], and the term "City Planet" dates at least as far back as the first draft of the script for ''Franchise/StarWars: Film/ANewHope''.

* ''[[OrsonScottCard The Worthing Saga]]'' shows in passing how one of these came to be. The short story "Skipping Stones" begins on a world that's heavily developed, but is still famous for its wildlife, particularly its "whiplash trees" that bend all the way to the ground in windstorms. As the skyscrapers go up, the trees go extinct, and eventually all the planet has become the "Capitol" that is the focus of later stories.
