* The setting of the ''IronGrip'' games is a [[PlayingWithATrope mostly]] [[MedievalEuropeanFantasy feudal]] SteamPunk LowFantasy world, but it's generally hard to pigeon-hole one or even two single historical eras it resembles the most. In broad terms, it has a blend of culture, architecture, tech and overall atmosphere that wouldn't look out of place in eras as varied as TheMiddleAges, TheRenaissance, the UsefulNotes/ThirtyYearsWar, UsefulNotes/TheNapoleonicWars, VictorianBritain, TsaristRussia, UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne, UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo, [[GenteelInterbellumSetting the decades between them...]] Not only CultureChopSuey, but full-blown [[AnachronismStew Era Chop Suey]] [[RuleOfCool as well]]...

* The ''{{Foundation}}'' Series: The Galactic Empire is Imperial Rome, the Foundation-era galaxy is Medieval Europe. The entire arc is explicitly modeled on ''The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire''.

* Several societies in SMStirling[='=]s ''{{Emberverse}}'' fulfill this trope although it also has a foot in FantasyCounterpartCulture as supernatural elements creep in during the second trilogy. The Clan [=MacKenzie=] is based on a New Age interpretation (much against the liking of its founder) of a Celtic clan, while the Portland Protective Association was deliberately created by an SCA member as a copy of a medieval feudal society with trappings of [[Literature/LordOfTheRings Mordor]]. The oddest example are the Dúnedain Rangers founded by a mildly insane Tolkien fangirl who has a quasi-religious reverence for his books. There are also several "Indian" tribes many of whose members have, at best, only nominal amounts of First Nations ancestry and Norrheim, a Viking style nation founded by Asatru. The Republic of Boise claims to be the successor to the original United States but it's setup is much more like the Roman Republic, especially it's military. Meanwhile over in England "Mad King Charlie" tried to turn what remained of his nation into something of a vast Rennaisance Faire, although his subjects drew the line at Morris dancing.

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' has this, complete with knights in giant robots, an Emperor, princes, and castles. It also has a Feudal Future for the Chinese Federation, which takes up most of Asia.
** ''Code Geass'' is AlternateHistory - society ''never'' advanced beyond a Feudal stage in this timeline, except in parts of Europe and elsewhere, and even then these were constantly outdone by the Brittanians. To be this trope they would have to have abandoned feudalism and imperialism at some point, but most of the world never did.

Despite the title of this page, this trope has nothing to do with the 1967 Moody Blues album ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Days_of_Future_Passed Days of Future Passed]]'' (where the title refers to, well, the ''present'', specifically the course of a single day in a person's life), nor the ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' TimeTravel story arc ''ComicBook/DaysOfFuturePast'' (although in the original run of the X-Men story, some of the background details imply a degree of technological regression, such as horses pulling a bus, and that timeline had certainly regressed in terms of social equality into an extreme level of segregation and eugenics) as well as [[Film/XMenDaysofFuturePast the film adaptation of said comic that bears the same name]].

* ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'', while set in world that looks like Medieval-esque Europe (albeit less prudish and more agnostic one) wih dinosaurs, strongly implies that it's in fact the future, with "magic" being ClarkesThirdLaw-abiding tech and Paradise being a colony that regressed technologically. There are even nations such as Spaña, Irysh, Anglysh, Slavia etc.
