** Done purposefully in a planet modeled on AncientEgypt. It also hilariously inverts the usual AncientAstronauts shtick: Turns out the aliens modeled ''their'' culture after the Egyptians, who taught them the secrets of space flight.

** Bajorans are explicitly a stand-in for any oppressed peoples in history, including, ironically, both Jews (the 1940s in Europe and the Israeli Wars of Independence) and Palestinians, along with "Kurds and Haitian boat people... terrorism and homelessness are universal problems".

** Bajorans are explicitly a stand-in for any oppressed peoples in history, including, ironically, both Jews (the 1940s in Europe and the Israeli Wars of Independence) and Palestinians, along with "Kurds and Haitian boat people... terrorism and homelessness are universal problems". The Bajorans also draw influence from American red states, with a heavily agrarian society and a strong religious bent and mistrust of secularism (complete with an episode allegorizing creationism and evolution).

* ''Literature/TheSilerianTrilogy'': Sileria has many similarities to Sicily-feuding clans, powerful crime syndicates which extort and murder people, plus a succession of foreign rulers. Valdania, meanwhile, has a resemblance to the Roman Empire, and it also has the same geographic relation of mainland Italy to Sicily, plus it's religion may be a vague Christian counterpart-it apparently involves "the Three" with a "sign of the Three" and believers say "Three into one!" On the other hand, its priests sacrifice goats. The Moorlands mirror Britain somewhat. Kinto, however, does not appear to have a counterpart, though it has vague similarity to some East Asian nations.
