** 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.

** Near the end of the timeline, their losses in the Global War cause [[spoiler: Britain and France]] to break apart into a number of bickering smaller nations.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', there's a civil war raging between the [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Imperial]] [[TheRomanEmpire Legion]] and the [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Stormcloak]] [[HornyVikings rebellion]]. [[PlayerCharacter You]] can negotiate peace between the two sides (on account of the pressing threat of the entire world getting eaten by dragons), or join up with one. (Or negotiate peace, then join up with one side and end the war anyway.) The civil war itself is a sterling example of GreyAndGrayMorality and BothSidesHaveAPoint in action, neither side is "right" and both sides have negative elements:

** The Great Schism, which started in the last year of the Human-Covenant War when [[BigBad the Prophet of Truth]] thought that the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Sangheili/Elites]] had [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness outlived their usefulness]] and tried to wipe them out with the help of the [[KillerSpaceMonkey Jiralhanae/Brutes]]. It didn't work out so well for him; several Sangheili [[EnemyMine allied with the humans]] to destroy the Covenant once and for all. That said, conflict still continues between the Elites and Brutes.

That said, conflict still continues between the Elites and Brutes.
** After the Covenant falls, both the Elites and Brutes begin fighting amongst themselves
as a superpower.much as they've been fighting against each other; the most notable of these intraspecies civil wars is the conflict between the Arbiter's pro-human Elite-led Swords of Sanghelios and Jul 'Mdama's anti-human Elite-led Covenant revival. In particular, the civil conflicts on the Elite homeworld have become so destructive that its population has fallen to less than half of what it was during the time of the Covenant.
** Before the Covenant War, humanity itself was on the brink of civil war, as the fighting between the UNSC and the Insurrectionists spread across the Outer Colonies. The conflict was mostly put on hold once the Covenant started attacking, but after the Great Schism, the Insurrectionists have begun rising up in force again.
** The backstory notes that the [[{{Precursors}} Forerunners]] fought their own fair share of civil wars before their ecumene was solidified.

** Its sequel, ''ComicBook/CivilWarII'', involves the Marvel superheroes once again split, this time [[ComicBook/MsMarvel Captain Marvel]] wants to use someone precognitive powers to prevent [[PrecrimeArrest crimes]] and disasters from happening. Franchise/IronMan, however, refuses to punish criminals before they commit crimes. [[spoiler: All of this is set off by the deaths of ComicBook/WarMachine and ComicBook/SheHulk at the hands of Thanos.]]

** 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.
