* ''WesternAnimation/CareBearsAdventuresInCareALot'' has this trope in spades. The main cloud the bears live on is spick and span. However, Rainshine Meadows was dilapidated until the bears got to it, and let's not get started on Grizzle's cloud.

* Santa Destroy in ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes'', honestly, doesn't look like to much of a bad place to live. Good pizza, law abiding drivers, and people who generally mind their own business. They don't even require guards at the border. But then you find out that some organization is promoting a bunch of hitmen (many of whom are ''very'' mentally disturbed) to fight each other to the death. Also, business men are even more corrupt than normal. [[NoMoreHeroes2DesperateStruggle It becomes a crapsack world when it all goes public though]]. At that point you better watch your back.

* In ''Literature/{{Divergent}}'', the faction system is hyped up as the reason that the Chicago society can prosper in a world where everywhere else is practically uninhabitable wasteland and everyone considers it as the right thing to uphold. The first thing signifying that there is a ''major'' problem is the existence of the factionless, people who are not accepted in any faction and thus have to live as subhumans, yet everyone accepts it as natural, even the protagonist Tris. Then Tris receives the results of her Aptitude Test which shows that she does not fit in any faction because she is a Divergent, a status which will earn her certain death should the superiors find out about it. This "prosperous" world slowly [[FromBadToWorse goes downhill from that point]], eventually ending up straight into the CrapsackWorld territory by the events of the final novel.

** Things have hardly improved by ''Series/TheLegendOfKorra'' since many people in the Outer Ring still live in poverty. One could say things are worse since they are the result of the oppressive, kleptocratic Earth Queen who [[spoiler: conscripts airbenders into her army in secrecy.]]

Thankfully, the situation seems to be improved at the end of the series, after [[spoiler: the Earth Kingdom is dissolved into several republics.]]

* Robert Silverberg's ''The World Inside''. Everyone lives in gargantuan apartment blocks ("urban monads" with names like [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Lakes_Megalopolis ChiPitts]]) and never goes out. The entire human race is obsessed with having as many children as possible - one protagonist is ashamed of having only four. It is seen as selfish (and therefore, criminal) to refuse sex to random strangers. And everyone is [[StepfordSmiler really, really happy all the time]]... because the ones who ''aren't'' happy are either lobotomized or dropped down the recycling chutes.

* There is Paradiso, the shining [[GoldAndWhiteAreDivine gold and marble]] {{Heaven}}-{{Expy}}. In fact, in the mythos of ''Bayonetta'' its even referred to as the 'World of Light' (as opposed to the {{Hell}}-expy Inferno as the 'World of Darkness', and the human world known as the 'World of Chaos') but LightIsNotGood is in full effect here. The [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angels]] are actually monstrosities that look more like [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations]] just under their gold and pearly shells, and outright despise humanity wanting nothing more than to wage a war on the Trinity of Realities so that they can wipe out both the Infernal Demons and all of humanity, so that only Paradiso remains. * In the first game there's Vigrid, a well-protected and secretive old world European city financed and owned by the Ithavoll Group, which is stationed on a tiny metropolitan man-made island called the Isla Del Sol. Just a few minutes in the city and Bayonetta already notices the guards in Vigrid are carrying assault rifles, and its later discovered that [[spoiler:the CEO of the Ithavoll Group is [[BigBad Father Balder]], last of the Lumen Sages who plans on resurrecting the Creator-God Jubileus in order to unmake the world to recreate it as something "better"]].
