* ''VideoGame/RedAlert2'': [[MeaningfulName Point Hope, Alaska]][[note]]It exists in RealLife, though according to ThatOtherWiki it is named after Vice Admiral William Johnstone Hope of the Royal Navy[[/note]] is the location of the last Allied base after the rest of the world is taken over by the Soviets, containing a Chronosphere which allows them to strike anywhere in the world. In a PerspectiveFlip, though, this is the last mission of the ''Soviet'' campaign - the player's mission is to wipe it out to ensure final victory.

* Switzerland has a ''massive'' fortification system called the National Redoubt. Put to use during WorldWarII, the National Redoubt had a series of forts, cannon positions, and other fixed defenses throughout the Swiss Alps. The Swiss battle plan in case of invasion, which was no secret, was to fight a holding battle in the lowlands for as long as possible, and then pull back to the Redoubt. The fortifications also commanded Switzerland's many passes and tunnels connecting Germany, France, and Italy; any attempt at invasion would mean cutting off that vital traffic. After the war, the defenses were examined and found to have more and better cannons than both the Maginot and Siegfried Lines ''combined''.

* For years after its defeat to the Chinese Communist Party in the UsefulNotes/ChineseCivilWar in 1949, the Kuomingtang under Chiang Kai-Shek treated Taiwan as this, vowing to retake mainland China at some point. This played into its actions during the 1950's, notably refusing to give up Quemoy and Matsu Islands (only a mile or two from PRC-held territory) and eventually sparking the passage of the Formosa Resolution by the US Congress, as well as delaying implementation of infrastructure and economic reforms on the island until the 1960's (if they're only going to be there for a few years, investing was a waste of time). Cut to 60+ years later, the Republic of China still officially claims the mainland (plus all or parts of several of China's neighbors), though nobody (including the ROC government) takes them seriously.
* UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill invoked this in his speeches for Britain in the months following the fall of France in June 1940 and during the Battle of Britain, as at that point the United Kingdom was the only belligerent left in Europe against Nazi Germany. The Axis took over the rest of the Balkans (with some difficulty) in 1940 and into 1941, but it wasn't until June 1941 with Operation Barbarossa that another major European power (the Soviet Union) was brought into the fight.
