* In ''VideoGame/{{Ravenmark}}'', the [[TheEmpire Empire of Estellion]] was founded by a priest named Phaestus, who objected to the feudal and corrupt Kingdom of Carsis's hereditary stratification, preaching meritocracy. Phaestus and Feronia, a peasant girl with powerful wind magic, lead a rebellion against the Carsis nobles and exile them to the impassable Cardani swamps. Phaestus then becomes the first ruler of the new Empire, henceforth known as Emperor Phaestus Corvius, with Feronia as his Empress. Meritocracy continues to be the Empire's core belief, and any commoner can earn life peerage (called Ravenhood) for him/herself and his/her children (but not grandchildren) through decades of loyal service (either military or administrative). Any family that manages to retain Ravenhood for 10 unbroken generations (very rare) becomes a noble House.

In the sequel, Usun Motare, the first game's [[TheDragon Dragon]] becomes the first leader of a new nation called the Varishah Federation. His people see him as a symbol of resistance to the Empire, having been previously subjugated by it.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': 300 years before the series, Aegon I Targaryen and his sister-wives conquered and unified six of the Seven Kingdoms with the aid of dragons. Accepting and rewarding all who surrendered, they founded King's Landing and the Kingsguard, forged the Iron Throne, and are fondly remembered for the most part. Aegon's Landing even marks a YearZero in the chronology of Westeros.

* In ''Literature/{{Magic 2.0}}'', Brit is the builder of {{Atlantis}}. However, since all time travelers are, effectively, immortal, Brit is still present as one of the rulers of the city. Two of them, in fact. To distinguish them, they are called Brit the Elder and Brit the Younger, and neither of them [[IHatePastMe likes]] [[FutureMeScaresMe the other]]. In fact, from Brit the Younger's viewpoint, she hasn't built Atlantis yet. She is destined to do that in several decades by going back into the past, becoming Brit the Elder.

* ''Webcomic/KnightsOfBuenaVista'' is a CampaignComic covering ''{{Disney/Frozen}}''. Although that movie doesn't state how old Arendelle is, in [[http://elsaletyoufinish.tumblr.com/post/87419793983/kobv-frozen-0001 the first strip of the comic]] it's made clear that Mary and Adriana founded the kingdom with their {{player character}}s. After they die in a TotalPartyKill, those two play their characters' daughters, Elsa and Anna.

* Not a country, but Jebediah Springfield of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''? It's not a nation, but he fills the same kind of concept (heroic figure, founder of the place).
** Cousin-marrying Shelbyville Manhattan for Springfield's rival city (Shelbyville… not Manhattan).
* Dale Dimm, founder of Dimmsdale from ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents''. Though many townspeople believed he was a myth, until Timmy went back through time and met him in-person.

* In ''Series/{{Andromeda}}'', the [[KnightTemplar Templars]] were founded by Admiral Constanza Stark (Dylan's former superior). Over the centuries, her soldiers found a way to copy her consciousness into the body of a loyal follower, so each commander was, in essence, the same person. The latest ([[spoiler:and final]]) instance is named [[Creator/MichaelIronside Constantine Stark]].
