** 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.

* The name of the ''Literature/ParaImperium'' universe stems from the fact that the Federation of Parahuman Species is more of a HereditaryRepublic that built an empire through control of interstellar travel and communications, and immortality-inducing nanotechnology.

* The Persian Empire of UsefulNotes/CyrusTheGreat could be considered the TropeMaker. Cyrus was quite tolerant towards other cultures. After invading Babylon he sent the Jews back home and gave orders that the Temple of Jerusalem be rebuilt, meaning he is portrayed very positively in Jewish scripture. However the attempted invasion of Greece seems to have given Persia a reputation of being TheEmpire.
* Australia, in regards to its immediate neighbours. New Zealand often toes whatever line Australia happens to follow; Papua New Guinea used to be a colony (and is often seen as a puppet) of Australia; Malaysia is too weak to do much; and most refugees in Southeast Asia head over to Australia for better opportunities than in their own countries. Indonesia, the fourth most populated nation and the largest archipelago in the world, is more or less TheRival to Australia, but most of its major parties are corrupt and civil services aren't really helpful to those who don't have the money for it (and there are a lot who don't have the money for it). Its military is roughly on par with Australia and it has a much larger population than Australia, but otherwise, there aren't really any other true opponents to Canberra in its immediate vicinity, so many people (in Canberra, of course) consider Australia to be something of a RisingEmpire.

** ''Civilization VI'' altered its victory mechanics so this is clearly the case. Either your culture is so influention every other nation has more people visiting yours that vacationing domestically, or your nation contains the holy city of a religion that dominates every other nation on the planet. Either way, your rivals cannot move against you without a massive backlash from their citizens, handing you the victory.

* While the OneWorldOrder in ''Literature/EndersGame'' is ''called'' The Hegemony, it is more in the vein of a necessary evil: there's a BugWar happening and someone needs to take control. At the end of the ''Shadow'' series, Peter Wiggin replaces it with the Free People of Earth, which governments opt into voluntarily and are ''only'' allowed to opt into voluntarily. It works, at least for a while (supposedly [[NoodleIncident it collapsed somehow]] and was replaced with the Starways Congress of the later ''Ender'' books).
