* Music/{{Lordi}}'s "Rock Police" is basically about said police enthusiastically and brutally suppressing (presumably -- it's never quite stated, but heavily implied by context nonetheless) ''non''-rock music.



* Some of the less liberal of the Successor States in ''TabletopGame/{{BattleTech}}'' have this.

* ''Film/{{Stargate}}'': Written language has been banned on Abydos for millennia (though there is a wall of hieroglyphics that's somehow survived for all this time). In-universe, this is explained as Ra not wanting them to learn about and follow the examples of those who rebelled against the Go'auld on Earth.

* In ''FanFic/MyImmortal'', it's apparently okay to send people to Azkaban for being {{Goth}}. Professor Sinister is sent there, and in the past Albus Dumbledore was so virulently anti-gothic that he'd send any goth he saw to Azkaban.

* ''Videogame/FallenLondon'': The Ministry of Public Decency, and their Special Constables, play this role, complete with book-burning insignia. They mostly crack down on obviously revolutionary literature and simple digs at the government (in particular the Masters of the Bazaar), but they're known to go after plays and books for stranger reasons, which is only partially explained by the fact Mr. Pages loves to steal books from the "for burning" pile and occasionally bans rare books just to have them itself. All romantic literature is also subject to heavy revision and taxation, and getting caught smuggling it is about as bad as getting caught soul-smuggling.

* The Nixels in ''WesternAnimation/{{Mixels}}'' are entirely anti-creativity...something the Mixels have loads of, and are always out to destroy the Cubits and creativity of the Mixels, hoping to turn the landscape as black and white as they are.
