* Rotten boroughs: Until 1832, some British [=MP=]s had constituencies with very few voters, due to the towns having declined centuries earlier. E.g. Old Sarum, Wiltshire, had only seven voters and no standing houses.

* Rotten boroughs: Until 1832, some British [=MP=]s had constituencies with very few voters, due to the towns having declined centuries earlier. E.g. Old Sarum, Wiltshire, had only seven voters and no standing houses. At least one borough was ''entirely underwater'', having been erased by coastal erosion at some point since its creation. Meanwhile, [[SuddenlySignificantCity formerly unimportant little towns]] that had expanded to cities of twenty thousand people or more had no MPs at all. It was another seventy years before Parliament thought of creating a civil service department to periodically adjust constituency boundaries based on census data rather than waiting until the issue was threatening to cause civil unrest, but to their credit they never let it get ''quite'' that bad again.

* In order to be able to take the maxmum amount of taxes in the State Treasury from the Federal government, who wanted to create a nuclear waste storage center, the government of UsefulNotes/{{Nevada}} created in 1987 the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bullfrog_County,_Nevada county of Bullfrog]] out of Nye County, around the completly unhabited Yucca Mountain, where the waste had to be sent, and set the land value tax to the maximum. This county, deprived of any population and infrastructure such as roads, had its seat at Carson City, the capital, and its officials were named by the central government. In 1989 the [[AmericanCourts Nevada Supreme Court]] ruled the fact Bullfrog County had no resident made it unable to have a representative government, [[RealityEnsues making the creation of this county unconstitutional]].

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' touches on this in the episode "Hell Bent" where an immortal woman known as Me is, for a time, the last sentient being in the universe. It is implied that she spends her time watching the last of the stars die while sitting next to an empty chair and a chessboard, with no one to play with.

* The protagonists of both the original ''Film/DawnOfTheDead1978'' and [[Film/DawnOfTheDead2004 the remake]] do this on a smaller scale with a shopping mall. In fact, this is largely the point (of the older movie, at least). It gets very {{Anvilicious}} when you see the little perfect world the protagonists have constructed for themselves, with things "borrowed" from the mall. The zombies are largely a distraction from the commercialism-[[BuffySpeak things]]. Sorry for FanWank.
