* In TamoraPierce's ''Literature/TortallUniverse'' series the King eventually gains possession of a jewel that can make the land itself rise against invaders if necessary. Notable in that there is a huge famine as a result of using that power after the King is forced to use it, and as later described by the characters, the power to make the land attack the invaders came from the living potential of the entire kingdom's stores of edible plants - specifically, the stores that would have been used to produce a crop for the next year. Result: a near bankrupt kingdom for several years because they had to buy all the food that they would normally have grown. Not exactly the best start to the new king's reign, but it gets better.

More pronounced in the sequel, where Good cities are teeming with wildflowers, butterflies, and pristine marble architecture; whereas Evil cities are surrounded by shadowy volcanic plains and haunted by the [[LovesTheSoundOfScreaming lamentations]] of the miserable peasants.

* The wellbeing and sanity of the soldiers and citizens of each Land in ''VideoGame/Drakengard3'' are tied to whether the ruling Intoner is around or not. When events cause each Intoner to no longer be present to rule, [[SanitySlippage well...]]

* Agrabah in ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' reflected the alignment of the ruler. The good sultan made it a sunny place of wonder, Jafar a dark and dreary land. In the [[WhatCouldHaveBeen original treatment]], Jafar's first wish was not only to be sultan, but to ''always'' have been sultan. This would cause a wave of magic to spread out over the kingdom, retroactively changing it to a gloomy and poverty-stricken place (with Aladdin spared because the Carpet protected him by wrapping him up).

* In the {{Smart Mark}}s' eyes, Wrestling/VinceMcMahon is a meta example over Wrestling/{{WWE}}. When he's feeling passionate and pragmatic enough, you get a highly esteemed environment such as those of the Attitude and Ruthless Aggression Eras. But when he's feeling complacent and paranoid beyond all reason, you get a widely panned environment such as that of the PG Era.

Added DiffLines:

* While nothing happens to the actual ''kingdom'' in ''Star Stealing Prince'', the introduction does state that the title royal's emotions directly influence those of his subjects - therefore, if he's happy/sad/etc. then they are too.

** The villain of ''Last Call'' is a gangster who established himself as Fisher King for the American West - based in Las Vegas, naturally - and uses BlackMagic to steal bodies to become immortal; the heroes refer to him as '[[Myth/ClassicalMythology Saturn]]'. Notably, the novel contains many references to ''The Waste Land'', and it's established that the last Fisher King before the villain was Bugsy Siegel.

* Some ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' fan works tend to show the Nations as this: if something's wrong with ''them'', the effects trickle down to ''everything'' in their respective countries.

* Some ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' fan works tend to show the Nations as this: if something's wrong with ''them'', the effects trickle down to ''everything'' in their respective countries. Usually (both in canon and in fanworks), it's portrayed the other way around, however.
