* What are commonly called One Province Minors([=OPMs=]) in games designed by ''ParadoxInteractive'' are these, states with only one province, and thus, in game terms, only one city.

* In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey'', Mario only travels around the area in and around a kingdom's most well known location. The brochures imply there's more to the place, but as far as the game is concerned, it's basically the kingdom itself. To be fair, the regular platformers do a fine job of illustrating just how big ''one'' kingdom is, so limiting Mario's exploration range is probably to ensure he stays on task.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'''s nations of [[TheKingdom San d'Oria]], [[TheRepublic Bastok]], [[TheFederation Windurst]], and [[HubCity Jeuno]] are all technically city-states in the present time, although the first three have historical areas that they controlled in the past that are now up for grabs. [[TheEmpire Aht Urhgan]] is seemingly the only in-game nation with actual vast stretches of territory.

** West Berlin [[ZigzaggedTrope is a special case]]. Officially, the city was a free and independent entity jointly ruled by the Mayor of (West) Berlin and the Western Allies (US, UK, France), and West German laws had no legal effect inside West Berlin. Practically, the city was ''de facto'' part of the ''Bundesrepublik Deutschlands'', as the citizens of West Berlin held West German citizenship [[note]]technically, West German citizenship was also extended to the citizens of the ''Deutsche Demokratische Republik'', but for obvious reasons, this could not kick in until the person was actually on West German soil to claim it, something [[UsefulNotes/TheBerlinWall East Germany went to insane lengths to prevent]][[/note]], West German currency was the official legal tender of West Berlin, when Bonn passed a law, West Berlin would enact the same law to keep legal parity, and West Berlin sent non-voting observer delegates to the ''Bundestag'' and ''Bundesrat'' in Bonn. Still, the Allies blocked official incorporation of West Berlin into the ''BRD'' in 1950 to avoid a serious flare-up in east-west tensions (the relevant law in the Berlin Constitution passed then didn't kick in until 1990, at the time of reunification). Additionally, West Berliners were not subject to the West German compulsory military service for young men[[labelnote: *]]Not only that, you ''couldn't'' join the military living in Berlin, even if you volunteered. You had to move to West Germany proper if you were keen on joining the military[[/labelnote]], which was a major reason why West Berlin was famously full of anti-establishment punks. The fact that West Berliners were West German citizens but not in West Germany led to the bizarre situation where a West Berliner could not vote in West German elections, but ''could'' run and even be elected to office in them (as happened with former West Berlin Mayor Willy Brandt, who would eventually be elected Chancellor of West Germany in the '70s.) East Berlin was claimed to be under the same status by the Western Allies, but apart from regular protest notes, this had less and less of an effect on daily life in East Berlin as years went on.

* In ''VideoGame/Spore'', the Empire stage starts off with about four or five single-city nations. As you progress through the stage, smaller nations merge to form larger one, subverting this trope.
