* The [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Crystal Empire]] is, despite the [[TheEmpire name]], barely a LandOfOneCity. It's implied that [[VestigalEmpire it was quite a lot bigger in the past.]]

* Various countries the world over resemble this trope: Europe has UsefulNotes/{{Monaco}}, UsefulNotes/{{Liechtenstein}}, UsefulNotes/{{Luxembourg}}, and UsefulNotes/VaticanCity.[[note]]The pope, as head of state, is indeed a monarch. Also, the Vatican is of course ''super'' micro, given that it is not only small but entirely surrounded by one ''city''--Rome.[[/note]] (Andorra is a weird case, as its co-princes are the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diocese_of_Urgell bishop of Urgell]] and ...''[[UsefulNotes/ThePresidentsOfFrance the president of France]]''). The Middle East has the smaller Arab states of the Persian Gulf (particularly Bahrain); Southeast Asia has UsefulNotes/{{Brunei}}. In mainland Asia there's UsefulNotes/{{Bhutan}}.

Africa has two, both closely connected to the nation of South Africa: UsefulNotes/{{Lesotho}}, which is an enclave of South Africa, and Swaziland.

* Many real-life micronations - tiny not-quite-countries, many of which have tried to gain independence from their parent countries, some even succeeding.
