* ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' would argue the federal government is well on it's way to this. The [[PoliticalCorretnessGoneMad aggressively PC]] federal government causes a wave of secession movements and breakaway states, each their own special brand of crazy. Including extreme, almost Stalinist, states based on environmentalism and rabid feminism, and at least one actual Nazi regime in the Midwest. The heroes in New England/Victoria, meanwhile, are traditional, conservative and at least lightly theocratic. Plus they purge themselves of dangerous liberal intellectuals, forcibly relocate minorities, control crime by proscribing summary execution for drug use... But they're nothing like these other examples.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/ChristianNation'' details the rise of a theocratic state in America, as told by someone who fights against it, joining the last holdout of the resistance in New York before being captured "born again" and released. Part of his reformation was needing to stone a gay friend.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheGardenOfTheFinziContinis'': The jackboot had been around for 16 years by 1938, actually. But the film depicts the boot coming down on Italy's Jews as UsefulNotes/FascistItaly passes its first anti-Semitic laws.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/{{Timbuktu}}'' is an Islamic version of this trope, showing a jihadist group rolling into the town of Timbuktu and imposing a particularly brutal sharia law on the locals. (InspiredBy the 2012 Ansar Dine war in UsefulNotes/{{Mali}}.)

* ''WebVideo/DerDisneygang'', a YouTube series based on the ''WebVideo/HitlerRants'' meme, the Disney universe gets taken over by the Nazis. Unfortunately, they had all right to, because Hitler legally bought Disney.



** Something similar happens with the Equalist takeover of Republic City in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', with troops and mecha-tanks in the streets and Amon maintaining a queue of benders to depower. They go so far as to mount a giant replica of Amon's mask on the statue of Aang, indicating either extreme commitment or way too much time on their hands.
