** It's eventually expanded by, naturally, the Star Wars Expanded Universe. Naboo elects a new monarch every four years, the monarch is meant to represent the innocence of humanity and as such is often very young, which explains why Amidala was queen at age 14. Also the monarch is usually given a new post when their time to reign is over, monarchs are allowed only two terms, with Padme Amidala becoming the galactic senator for her planet after her reign as Queen. Apparently they tried to change this rule to permit Padmé more time in office, but she declined.
** Leia is actually a princess through her adopted parents, Queen Brea and Prince Bail Organa of Alderaan. ExpandedUniverse material shows that, despite being a core world of the Republic (and thus subject to the laws of a democracy), local affairs are ''very'' much controlled by the local noble houses, complete with assassinations, AltarDiplomacy, and [[DeadlyDecadentCourt all the other things you'd expect]] from a social structure of ''Literature/AGameOfThrones'' given sci-fi tech. {{Deconstructed}} in ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'' where the planet withdrew from the Republic, and is in a state of all-out civil war among the nobility, with the Republic and the Empire supporting different noble houses in a proxy war to take down a usurper who believes the planet should remain independent (which is not in the interest of either faction).

*** Sheev Palpatine is a member of House Palpatine, one of Naboo's noble houses though their title is never given. He actually got into politics partly because he was to far down in line to become the heir, which actually pretty common for younger sons of nobility in nations like Great Britain.

** The planet Serrano is a giant county and during the Prequel Trilogy is ruled by Count Dookoo. Dookoo was originally a Jedi Master but resigned in order to inherit the throne, which was a convenient cover for his disillusion with the Order. It's never explained whether the Counts of Serrano have any nobles above or below them (interestingly Count is an intermediate rank), though its possible "Count" was chosen because Dookoo was played by Creator/ChristopherLee as a shout out to [[Literature/Dracula more famous Count]] he played.

* The BadFuture presented in ''ComicBook/OldManLogan'', of a sorts. Red Skull managed to organize all the supervillains to kill off most of the heroes and afterwards they divvied up America into four "kingdoms". "President" Red Skull loosely ruling the whole country and directly controlling the Eastern Seaboard, Doctor Doom took the Bible Belt, Magneto wanted Nevada, and Abomination had California. Though by the time of the series start Magneto's territory had been seized by a new Kingpin [[spoiler: who, in turn, is usurped by Peter Parker's granddaughter "Spider-Bitch"]], and Abomination was killed by the Hulk and his inbred clan of cannibalistic hillbilly gangsters (the "landlords" of Logan's family farm.)

* In ''StevenUniverse'' Gem society has shades of this. Since Gems are functionally immortal succession does not play a role (though you could view each Gem type as a "lineage" of sorts), but the Diamonds, who rule the interstellar Gem empire, are very much treated as royalty, and each have their own court composed of [[FantasticCasteSystem various ranks of servant Gems]] and an "aristocracy" of Sapphires and other higher-ranked Gem types. The various Quartz sub-types serve as something like knights. There definitely seems to be a legal system underpinning Gem society and keeping the Diamonds in power, since the Diamonds explicitly want to put Rose Quartz on ''trial'' for betraying her ruler, Pink Diamond.

* In ''WesternAnimation/Xyber9NewDawn'', there are kingdoms, empires and lots of peasants, and yet there's also hoverbikes, AirborneAircraftCarriers, and various forms of energy weapons.

* It appears that three of the four Houses in ''VideoGame/{{Freelancer}}'' have (at least, partly) a feudal system. Bretonia resurrects the British constitutional monarchy. [[ImperialJapan Kusari]] has an Emperor and local lords. Even Rheinland goes back to the old days of unified Prussia and has its own aristocracy. [[EagleLand Liberty]] appears to be the only one with a purely democratic government.

** It makes sense, since even the society of the core planets of TheVerse have a lot of visible throwbacks to 19th century culture. While the outer rim planets [[SpaceWestern have a definite Western feel]], the members of high society on the core planets evoke VictorianBritain and the American Reconstruction and Gilded Age eras (contemporaries of pretty much [[TheWildWest the whole Western mythos and its tropes]]).

* In ''ComicBook/NikolaiDante'', in the 27th century, Earth has basically become TsaristRussia. Dmitri even thinks the fact that the Romanovs ruled the first Russian Empire gives him a greater claim to the throne than Vladimir.
