** An episode, "Two", seems to follow this trope. Elizabeth Montgomery is very Soviet in uniform and appearance and her one line is "Precrassny", Russian for "pretty". Of course, it's clearly an AfterTheEnd AdamAndEvePlot with an explicitly ambiguous TranslationConvention, so perhaps not?

* ''Anime/ThePlacePromisedInOurEarlyDays'' is set in an AlternateHistory where Japan was divided after World War II, with Hokkaido going to "the Union". This context, combined with how nationals of the Union speak Russian, implies strongly that it's the USSR.

** And the fifth season featured villains who, despite clearly being Russian separatists and having the assassination of the Russian President among their objectives, were referred to being from "Central Asia".

* In 1940, as Nazi troops marched across Europe and the U.S. remained (officially) neutral, MGM released ''Film/TheMortalStorm''. The movie had an explicitly anti-Nazi message, but MGM tried to mitigate the damage a bit by only once identifying Germany as the setting and referring to the presumably Jewish characters only as "non-Aryans". The Nazi regime was offended anyway and responded by banning all MGM films in Germany.

* Swedish propaganda movies during WW2 are a special case. Since Sweden was neutral, ''all'' the countries involved in the actual war were potential enemies. It doesn't help warning people against the godless communists or beastly Huns if the spy or saboteur they actually have a chance of detecting works for the Western allies. Hence, spies, saboteurs etc. are just nefariously ''foreign'', their allegiance is never spelled out, and they are given vaguely Mitteleuropean names (since people from any of the forces involved could be named such).

Added DiffLines:

* [[http://www.cpusa.org The Communist Party USA]] technically ''does'' use a hammer and sickle for its logo, but it's a modified shape that's less likely to remind Americans of their old long-time rivals, and it has a cog added to the design.

* ''The RockyAndBullwinkle Show'' had the villains Fearless Leader, Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale come from the fictional country of Pottsylvania, a parody of a UsefulNotes/ColdWar-era eastern European country (possibly based on East Germany).
