The same sense of style permeates other facets of society, not just clothing and architecture. Instead of a president or an assembly, the [[Series/BabylonFive Minbari]] are ruled by the Grey Council, the [[{{WesternAnimation/Futurama}} Nibblonians]] from the Hall of Forever (which also hosts the Feast of a Thousand Hams).

* Lemuria in ''[[VideoGame/GoldenSun Golden Sun II: The Lost Age]]''. Togas, Greek Temples, and the whole thing, all powered by magic...er...Psynergy. This lost civilization even discovered immortality, only to realize that life got really, really boring after a few hundred years.

** Prospero's capital Tizca, the pre-Heresy homeworld of the Thousand Sons fits the description practically to a T with its spires of glass and populace dressing in robes. The Sons are universally regarded as WarriorScholars and are shown with a collective penchant for the fine arts, Ahriman himself an aspiring vintner. Tizca's libraries are the greatest collective repository of knowledge outside of Terra within the Imperium, and the living standards the population enjoys one of the highest. And then came the Space Wolves...

After passing the "[[RaygunGothic big, shiny and sciencey!]]" period, a highly developed civilization can enter a stage where technology continues to advance, but becomes a lot sleeker and subtler. At the same time, society gets epic. Jumpsuits will start being replaced by togas, robes and such garments, bustling [[MegaCity mega-cities]] by [[ShiningCity brilliant]] arcologies. There will be [[PowerCrystal crystals]]. Lots and ''lots'' of [[DataCrystal crystals]]. This world of tomorrow may end up looking much like Ancient Greece (the theme-park Cecil B. de Mille version at least) while still enjoying ultratech comforts.

* ''[[SoulSeries Soul Calibur IV]]'', When Siegfried defeats Nightmare, he sacrifices himself and using his [[BfS sword]], he plunges the world into a utopian society literally ''covered'' in crystal.

* This seems to be the case in ''LasLindas'', due to the efficiency of nanotechnology, in the big cities at least. Most of the comic takes place on a rural farm that looks completely modern day. And most people's fashion sense doesn't quite qualify.

* In ''Literature/TheHungerGames'', the Capitol is described as being full of colored glass, and the people are obsessed with fashion. Technology also seems to have advanced to the point that it can be completely hidden from view. Although no one wears a toga, Capitol residents almost all have Roman names, establishing them as a decadent and technologically advanced society.

* ''Fanfic/ACrownOfStars'': The Empire of Avalon. Although there are not many visible togas, technology is sleek and cities are definitely shiny and monumental.
