* ''Literature/{{Swellhead}}''. The protagonists are sent to investigate strange events on the long-deserted and distant island of Skerra, somewhere on the ill-defined border between Britain and Island which for historical reasons even has a monarchy (not that she's ever set foot on the island before now) and is therefore an independent nation. Turns out an ElaborateUndergroundBase has been discovered on Skerra, despite the sheer impossibility of constructing one without vast resources and public knowledge. One which, as they delve further into it, looks increasingly like a classic SupervillainLair... [[spoiler:It turns out the base was constructed by a supervillain in an AlternateUniverse, which is now bleeding into our version.]]

* During the ColdWar, several U.S. allies acted like these as they hosted US military personnel; most notable were (and still are) the UK and Japan as they are actual islands, as well as Iceland (which didn't and still doesn't have a military when it joined UsefulNotes/{{NATO}}) and Taiwan (prior to the establishing of diplomatic ties between the US and China in 1979). Islands need not be purely geographical, either - Alexander Haig, Secretary of State under UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan, called Israel the US's largest unsinkable aircraft carrier in the Middle East.

* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'': From ''[[Literature/ColdDays Cold Days]]'' on, Demonreach has become this for Harry. It's secluded location and powerful GeniusLoci make it far more defensible than his old apartment, but at the same time more vulnerable, as the island is [[spoiler: the site of a massive supernatural prison constructed by the original Merlin to hold some of the baddest bads in the setting, and some of Harry's enemies are interested in setting those baddies loose]]. The isolation from his friends and allies his relocation to the island has caused is also a minor plot point.
