** The ''[[KamenRiderAmazon Amazon]]'' story arc of ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'' took place in a parallel universe which had been completely taken over by Dai-Shocker. The Nazi imagery is really obvious here, as the military police wear German stahlhelms and children are required to salute their superiors with a gesture that resembles the Nazi salute.

* Creator/JoWalton's ''Literature/SmallChange'' trilogy (''Farthing'', ''Ha'penny'', and ''Half a Crown''). They are set in an alternate England in which Rudolph Hess successfully brokered peace, and the main character is Inspector Peter Carmichael, who [[BigBrotherIsEmployingYou works for the Fascist dictatorship government]]. A number of the characters are inspired by people like Unity Mitford- upper class high society people who favored appeasement during the 1930s and afterward.

** A case of YouFailHistoryForever, because anti-communism was the driving force behind the rise of fascist governments, and if the bolshevik revolution had failed, Germany and Russia [[AlternateHistory wouldn't have ended]] their infamous... cooperation.

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

* Terry Gilliam's ''Film/{{Brazil}}''. Brazil '''was''' a military dictatorship, but never to the extent Gilliam portrayed.

* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'': Gul Dukat takes control of the Cardassian government and arranges Cardassia's membership of the Dominion before then attempting to justify his actions to both the Cardassian people and the rest of the Alpha Quadrant. His leadership of Cardassia is ''only'' a disaster for the Alpha Quadrant; for Cardassia itself, it's a catastrophe of apocalyptic proportions [[spoiler: (when the Cardassian people revolt against the Dominion with Bajoran and Federation help, the Dominion commits genocide, destroying over eight hundred million civilians; Cardassian history will ''not'' remember Dukat's leadership fondly)]].

See also InvadedStatesOfAmerica and OppressiveStatesOfAmerica for something specific to the United States - columns of foreign troops marching down Pennsylvania Avenue can be a very powerful image when the last time this happened was [[TheWarOf1812 200 years ago]]. May involve TheCoup, though it doesn't necessarily need to (that trope is more on the act itself, this trope is more about the after-effects).

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder'' is set in a world where the Nazis have won World War II with [[StupidJetpackHitler advanced technology]] and have taken over America. B.J. Blazkowicz, the protagonist of the series in general, is [[BerserkButton less than pleased at this]].
