** [[PlayingWithSyringes Unit 731]] in Manchuria added an extra level of horror for anyone rounded up by the [[StateSec Kempei-tai]], with prisoners of all ages and ethnicities subjected to medical torture by IJA personnel, including vivisections without anesthetic, being thrown into pressure chambers and getting infected with bubonic plague or anthrax en masse.

* ''The Racketeer'' describes a Jamacian prison as being like this for Nathan Cooley. Every cell there is overcrowded, there's no air conditioning, and because Nathan's the only white man in the all-black prison, he's the lowest thing on the pecking order there; he has to sleep right next to the waste bucket, the other prisoners steal his food and shoes, and he's subjected to a number of violent beatings from them.

** The second game introduces Eastern Baltimore Correctional Facility, a place only ''marginally'' better than Abbott - but only because it doesn't have executions or a corrupting influence. The officials are notoriously vicious around here, the most infamous being Warden Elroy: instituting a brutal regime of forced labor at the [[HellishFactory machine shop]], he deliberately overlooked malfunctioning equipment and paved the way for an accident that resulted in an entire crew of inmates being incinerated. Any signs of unrest were put down by specially-hired Emergency Response Teams, resulting in the hospitalization or deaths of several inmates. And for any inmates who needed to be punished further, they were sent to solitary confinement - where they'd be kept in lightless soundproofed cells for six months at a time - [[GoMadFromTheIsolation usually resulting in madness and suicide]]. And once again, this was what the place was like before the monsters showed up.

* The main setting of ''VideoGame/TheSuffering'' is Abbott State Penitentiary, a maximum-security complex situated on an island ten miles off the coast of Maryland. According to in-game lore, this is where the Maryland Department of Corrections carries out the majority of its executions; it also has the ''worst'' safety record of all the prisons in the Department, along with the highest homicide rate and the highest suicide rate. It's not hard to see why: along with harsh conditions, gang activity, abusive guards and rape, [[PsychologicalTormentZone Carnate Island has a supernatural tendency to bring out the worst in people]], resulting in inmates being left buried alive in rubble, corrections officers developing a fetish for the gas chamber, and wardens driven to hideous excesses of religious mania. And this was what the place was like ''before'' the earthquake!

* ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' has the demonic Black Prison, which is literally a prison in hell and is about as wholesome as it sounds. The angels [[GoodIsNotNice aren't much nicer]] and their lands are dotted with zero-privacy Panopticon prisons for mandatory re-education. Fortunately, both of these locations are found empty when the player characters come across them and it takes some impressive levels of GameplayDerailment to actually imprison anyone there.

Not that any other place where [[UnPerson disappeared]] [[{{Dehumanization}} "subversive elements"]] were thrown into any better.

* Natan Sharansky says that when he was confined by the [[MoscowCentre KGB]] , they were deliberately trying to wear down his [[HonorBeforeReason spirit]] with endless amounts of ColdBloodedTorture.
** They didn't actually enjoy their work and used methods which showed little of the [[Film/ThePrincessBride six fingered man]] type "craftsmanship" but much of brutality. Nor did they want information. All they wanted was for him to shut up and stop being [[LaResistance embarrassing]] to the regime.
