Added DiffLines:

* The underlying theme of the ''Literature/{{Imperium}}'' series is the collapse of the Roman Republic and the coming of the Roman Empire. There is a scene in ''Lustrum'' where Cato lays out quite clearly for Cicero what is to come—the continuing habit of empowering people like Pompey with special commands will result in those commanders controlling the state. The Senate will be powerless and whoever commands the loyalty of the legions will rule. Cato also points out that the expansionism of the Roman Republic is undermining constitutional rule. At one point in ''Lustrum'' Tiro talks about how Caesar destroyed the Roman constitution and expresses a wish that Caesar is burning in hell.

* An episode of ''Series/{{Misfits}}'' took place in an alternate timeline where Germany won UsefulNotes/WorldWarII and Britain was made into a Nazi province. All things considered, the differences between the timelines are not that great but still disturbing. The community center is now a detention center for delinquents and undesirables, and people with powers are being rounded up so that Seth the Power Dealer can transfer their abilities into high-ranking Nazi officers. Shaun, the apathetic and slightly corrupt social worker from the real timeline is now an apathetic and ''very'' corrupt Nazi official. Curtis and Alisha, being black, are reduced to second-class citizens- Alisha's drink-driving would have earned her a ''prison sentence'' if Shaun hadn't chosen her as his "personal assistant." As a final insult, [[TheWoobie Simon]] has been conscripted into the local Nazi regiment, and is bullied into executing defenceless prisoners.

This trope is when ThoseWackyNazis, DirtyCommunists or [[ANaziByAnyOtherName people who look and act]] [[CommieNazis suspiciously like either of them]] take over the protagonist's country or hometown. Communism is a less common target for this now, thanks to TheGreatPoliticsMessUp.
