* In ''SwordOfTheStars 2'' the Morrigi see themselves as self-appointed protectors of the "younger races", as such their Confederation incorporates many more species than most of the other factions and players of any faction can annex minor races peacefully.

** The United States was founded with this in mind. After the Revolutionary War, the individual colonies were seen as individual nations that banded together to become an alliance of nations with one entity (The United States Government) being the regulator of all international and inter-state issues. The thought of the United States as a national identity did not gain mainstream support until the fall out of the Civil War (General Robert E. Lee would have fought for the Union if Lincoln had asked him a day earlier... Virginia succeeded from the Union the day Lincoln asked and Lee sided with his country, which he believed was Virginia). Vestiges of this mentality still exist to this day with the concept of State's Rights (the 10th Amendment to the Constitution explicitly says that if the Constitution does not explicitly reserve a power for itself, than that power is ceded to the State). It's quite common for states to have unique personalities, attitudes, priorities, and interests that are not shared by their neighbors.

** Another aspect of Putin's foreign policy is his warm relationship with several right wing populist politicians, some of which are arguably financed with Russian money and/or extolled in Russian media outlets like RT and Sputnik News. It's telling that when Marine Le Pen of the French National Front proposed a dog whistle ban on double citizenship for French people the only nationality she explicitly exempted was Russian and French.

* The Cartorran Empire in ''Literature/TheWitchlands'' has mostly expanded through marriages, alliances, and enticing vassals with treaties of protection. They've only begun to turn into conquerors very recently, as there are simply no more countries willing to ally with them left.



* In ''Series/{{Andromeda}}'' the Vedran Empire was the more traditional type until non-Vedran species began to vastly outnumber the founders and it evolved into the Systems Commonwealth. When it contacted humanity thousands of years after becoming a constitutional monarchy we joined voluntarily.

* Currently the Padishah Empire of Kelesh in ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' is in a period of seeing this as an ideal, focusing on commerce, clandestine intelligence activities and portraying Keleshites in a benevolent light. Even during their more militaristic expansionary periods (which some groups in the Empire wish to return to, including the most showcased region of the empire, the satrapy of Qadira -- mostly because Qadira wants another go at their arch-enemy of Taldor) some elements of this was present, with the Empire being flexible about incorporating cultures and traditions, and fond of establishing autonomous satrapies.

* In ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', Asgard is this in respect to the Nine Realms, albeit with a light touch, mostly only getting involved if someone's mucking around with one of the other Realms, or one of the other Realms is mucking around with another (as with the Asgard-Frost Giant Wars), with a general policy best summed of 'don't make us come down there (because we can kick the crap out of you and you know it)'. This attitude hasn't been entirely consistent over time, with some periods, like Bor's rule, where Asgard largely ignored various realms, and others hinted at when it ruled a much more conventional (and huge) empire. Under Odin, however, Asgard tends to keep a gimlet eye on the affairs of the Nine Realms and make a statement where required. This is pretty much the only reason that the likes of the Kree, the Skrulls, the Shi'ar and other would-be powers have left Earth alone.

* In ''Anime/{{Kuromukuro}}'', Efidolg is a multiracial, overarching interstellar empire that uses coercion, MindControl, and [[SendInTheClones cloning]] to control the planets it conquers. There are no single species that can be called "Efidolg", rather it uses [[EqualOpportunityEvil all the races it controls in its ranks]], with [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy some twisted chivalry]] and something akin KlingonPromotion being hinted as a social advancement mechanism.
