* In the early seasons of ''Series/TheWire'', despite taking place in the 2000s, we see the police department still using typewriters due to not having the budget to get computers.

** Many of said Feral Worlds are also base of operation for [[BioAugmentation transhuman]] {{Space Marine}}s in PoweredArmor wielding [[MoreDakka repeating grenade launchers]] and [[PowerFist matter-disrupting gauntlets]], since the tribal wars are excellent for identifying promising recruits when they are [[ChildSoldiers still young enough]] to undergo the transformation process. The most famous example would be the SpaceWolfes from [[HornyVikings Viking Age]] [[DeathWorld Fenris]]

* On ''Series/{{The 100}}'', roughly a century AfterTheEnd of the world, the Mountain Men have maintained most of the technology and culture of early 21st Century America, while the Grounders who live on the land surrounding the mountain have regressed to tribalistic {{Future Primitive}}s. A JustifiedTrope, since the Mountain Men's low radiation tolerance means they can't survive outside of the mountain, keeping them cloistered away from the rest of humanity's development, while they actively suppress any attempts by Grounders to pick up LostTechnology that would let them challenge the Mountain Men for supremacy.

* ''TheDarkEye'' has cultures ranging from stone age tribes to Renaissance/early industrialisation nations. Besides, there's a country, where you have, through [[TechnologyIsEvil demonic possession]], scyscrapers, tanks, and temporarily the whole capital turned into a flying fortress. And that's just the human side of things.

* Gotham city and Metropolis both reflect the style of their hero: Dark for Franchise/{{Batman}} and shiny and optimistic for Franchise/{{Superman}}. A common saying about the two cities within DC was that Metropolis was [[BigApplesauce New York City]] in the daytime, while Gotham was New York at night. The Animated Series for both [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries these]] [[WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries shows]] even cross over, however Superman ended up visiting Batman at night (and Bats usually took the night with him to Metropolis).

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' has the {{Cyberpunk}} dystopia of Midgar brimming with neon signs and robots, bordered by Kalm, which looks exactly like a stereotypical JRPG town down to having a city wall and pretty wattle-and-daub buildings. In the Nibelheim of Cloud's childhood there's only a single truck in the whole town and people still draw their water from a communal well. However, everyone has access to the same level of technology - it's just unevenly distributed.

** They actually stated in one ''White Dwarf'' that they'd created a fictional universe where you can have rock-waving barbarians and antigravity tanks on the same battlefield.

* ''Film/TheHungerGames'': Particularly highlighted in the film. The Districts, especially the "lower" ones like 11 and 12 look straight out of TheFifties ''at best,'' if not the Great Depression or even the 19th Century. It's no wonder then that those from there tend to be awestruck by how modern the Capitol is.
