* ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' is all about the violent dissolution of the United States prompted by, among other things, a hyperinflation crisis, anemic response to an engineered pandemic, harsh anti-smoking laws, and federal support of rapists, murders and criminals over the common citizen in the name of racial tolerance and sensitivity. Aside from the failed efforts of the Feds to retain power, few of the successor states are inclined to get along, or even suffer each other to exist.

** Rhodesia and South Africa both fall into chaotic civil wars as various militias rise up against both nation's dominant Apartheid governments. In both cases, it takes a RegimeChange brought about by foreign intervention to end the fighting -- in Rhodesia, the OSS (this timeline's version of the CIA) engineers a MilitaryCoup by moderate officers disgusted by the government's radical violence against the rebels, while South Africa requires a full-scale invasion and occupation by the [[UnitedEurope European Community]] to topple the remnants of the government and bring about peace.
** The Ottoman Empire eventually dissolves into total anarchy, as Sunni fundamentalists and ultra-nationalists begin targeting Jewish, Christian, Shi'a, and other religious/ethnic minorities throughout the empire, who retaliate by raising their own militias and fighting back. And while we don't see the conclusion of this conflict before the timeline wraps up, narrative comments state that it results in the final end of the empire as an entity.

* ''[[http://wiki.alternatehistory.com/doku.php?id=timelines:tl-191_after_the_end Timeline-191: After the End]]'' features a Japanese Civil War break out near the end of the Fourth Pacific War, as a result of insane military dictator [[GeneralRipper General Ishii]] ordering a purge of all (actual and imagined) political enemies he believes are about to enact a coup against him in order to sue for peace with the [[TheAlliance Compact of Democratic States]]. This causes many surviving high-ranking officers throughout Japan's Co-Prosperity Sphere to declare their territories independent of Ishii's regime, leading to fighting with loyalist forces in the same regions. Other officers, meanwhile, seize control of many of the Sphere's {{Puppet State}}s, allegedly to ensure Ishii's control but really to establish their own fiefdoms, a series of events made even more complicated as most of those puppet states break out in open rebellion against all Japanese control. And on top of all that, Ishii's government is eventually overthrown by a syndicalist revolution, leading to fighting all over the Home Islands between syndicalists and military loyalists.

* In ''FanFic/RobbReturns'', the Iron Islands are on the edge, due to the growing differences between those who intend to heed the Call (such as Rodrik Harlaw) and those that deny it happened (like Balon Greyjoy and Damphair).
** Another begins to brew up in the Riverlands, between those who follow the Old Gods and the resurgent Faith Militant.

* ''Literature/TheTraitorSonCycle'': When the "visiting" Gallish knights - who, for the past year, have been raping, robbing and generally mistreating the Alban populace - manage to arrest the Queen on charges of adultery and intend to have her burned at stake, the people finally have enough and a war erupts between the Gallish faction and Queen's loyalists.

* The Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse has a civil war between loyal agents of SHIELD and infiltrated agents of Hydra. It begins in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'', and it is continued in ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD''.
** Of course, there's also the Avengers civil war in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar''. Which, unlike its comic book counterpart, is sparked by the Sokovia Accords, a bill that would place the Avengers under the authority of the UN.

* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' shows the beginning of a civil war between the mages and templars which could potentially spread across the world. The player is forced to choose a side, [[GreyAndGrayMorality which is more difficult than it sounds.]] The conflict is more widely depicted in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition''.

** And all of the above is pretty much just the basic set up. Things get a bit more complicated later on: [[spoiler: after [=MacArthur=] dies in a hurricane, the Whites take control of D.C., the Japanese seize the Pacific possessions, and the rest of Khaki territory dissolves into warlordism, leaving a rump government in the Alaskan panhandle. The Blues defeat Ford, and then form the [[TheAlliance Red Oak Pact]] with the Congress and Maine. This inspires the Blue-friendly East Coast soviets to break away and form the American Workers Collective, which forms the Popular Front with the Blues. Later, the Japanese invade the West Coast in support of the Whites, causing the Red Oak Pact/Popular Front, the ASR, most of the Khaki warlords, and a [[NeutralNoLonger no longer neutral Canada]] to band together. They drive back the Japanese, defeat the Whites, bring North Dakota to heel, and then defeat the ASR and the remaining independent warlords]]. With these final acts, the remaining factions gather for a PeaceConference in Toronto, officially ending the war and forging a new United States federal government.

* In ''Literature/TheFalconCannotHear'', the assassination of President-elect UsefulNotes/FranklinDRoosevelt in 1933 means there's no New Deal to help the United States successfully recover from the Great Depression, causing tensions to continue to rise between various left- and right-wing groups and the government, coming to a head when the Bonus Army [[spoiler: kills the President and Vice-President]] in 1937. Army Chief-Of-Staff Douglas [=MacArthur=] subsequently stages a MilitaryCoup to try and stabilize the situation, but that just ignites the powder keg and kicks off the Second American Civil War, which has no less than ''five'' major factions -- [=MacArthur=]'s "Khaki" military government, which controls D.C., the Rockies, Alaska, and the overseas territories; the American Soviet Republic, which stretches from Chicago to NYC; the "White" coalition of fascists and business interests led by Huey Long, which control the South, Texas, part of the Southwest, and eastern New England; the Provisional Government, or "Blues", an alliances of prewar liberals and democratic socialists, who control upstate New York, the Upper Midwest, western New England, and the West Coast; and the Continental Congress, an alliance of farmers dissatisfied with the other factions, which controls the Midwest and Plains. And that's not mentioning smaller players -- North Dakota, which declares independence; Maine, which becomes highly autonomous and plays the other factions for greater independence for itself; B.R.O.W.N. (the Bannerman Revolutionary Organization of Willing Negroes), a black militia in White territory; and Henry Ford, whose private armies turn Detroit into his personal fiefdom.
