* In the DCComics series ''[[ComicBook/JonahHex Hex]]'', set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture (from the readers' perspective), the United States seems to have fragmented into various locales ruled by warlords or, in the case of UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity, by a successor to Franchise/{{Batman}}.

* In [=GDW's=] ''TabletopGame/{{Twilight 2000}}'', the US was shattered by a nuclear war in the late '90s. The government has fractured into two factions, "Civgov" and "Milgov" but most of the country is actually in anarchy. The follow-up game, ''{{2300 AD}}'', shows that the nation eventually recovers, though it does not regain super-power status.

* YMMV, but there are a number of places in America RIGHT NOW that are a lot like third world countries.

* ''BarbWire'' is a blatant ''{{Casablanca}}'' rip-off set in a dystopian future where continuous wars have turned the US into a third-world dictatorship with obvious Nazi overtones. It's telling when the protagonist demands that she be paid for the job in ''Canadian'' dollars, meaning American dollars aren't worth much, and everyone is trying to emigrate to Canada.
