* ''VideoGame/DeusEx'': The United States is in a what is the worst economical state it has ever been in its history, as implied by a conversation between two French civilians. The Grey Death has hit the nation hard, the majority of civilians encountered are homeless, many citizens are in active revolt, parts of Texas have been [[MexicoCalledTheyWantTexasBack conquered by the Russo-Mexican alliance,]] and the backstory explains the United States has been in the gutter ever since a massive earthquake sank a good chunk of the West Coast twenty years before the game starts, which along with new gun control legislation about twelve years afterwards, led to a [[DividedStatesOfAmerica second civil war]]. News articles read show that politicians still act like the nation is a superpower, but this is obviously no longer the case, with that honor now taken by [[ChinaTakesOverTheWorld China.]] [[spoiler: One ending has the US dissolve in the turmoil of the collapse, and the other it can be assumed that it's functions were absorbed in the JC-Helios government. If one doesn't reject Invisible War, it fell apart completely in the years during the Collapse.]]

* ''VideoGame/Civilization'': Since America has appeared in every version of the game, this can happen anytime they lose. Given that later versions make America a Mid-Late Game Power House and an expansionist, they tend to get very big, very early, and have little ways to specialize in defending themselves, this can often result.

* Even before nuclear war broke out in the universe of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'', the United States was on the decline, with the government growing increasingly tyrannical and warlike in the wake of resource shortages. Hundreds of years after the bombs fell, there's nothing left of the U.S. government but the Enclave, who are always the antagonist when they show up and were secretly responsible for [[spoiler: the many inhumane experiments conducted on the citizens of the Vaults.]]

* ''Incorporated'': Climate change has devastated the United States so that outside the corporate-owned "Green Zones" the country is one big slum. The pilot shows a news report about Canada building a wall to keep out illegal American immigrants and the fourth episode opens with a Chinese ad soliciting donations to aid children in America.
