* The Empire of the Star in the ''Literature/{{Eldraeverse}}'', having evolved from mergers of private law providers in a previous PrivatelyOwnedSociety.

* The Empire of the Star in the ''Literature/{{Eldraeverse}}'', having evolved from mergers of private law providers in a previous PrivatelyOwnedSociety. Becoming a citizen of the Empire requires buying a share in the Empire, though its' charter also prevents a citizen-shareholder from owning more than one share to prevent it from becoming a plutocratic oligarchy. Also, not uncommon in the Associated Worlds at large - most interstellar colonies start out run by a colonial corporation, and many of them never get around to replacing it.

* In ''Film/{{Brazil}}'', Central Services functions both as (and like) a totalitarian government and a corporate monopoly. Due to its bureaucratic and grossly inefficient nature, some viewers don't get this aspect clearly.

Subtrope of PrivatelyOwnedSociety. Very common in the CyberPunk genre. If the story is set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, then it more likely than not takes place in either a DividedStatesOfAmerica or [[JapanTakesOverTheWorld Japan]].

* And long before all of these boys were even glimmers in their founders' eyes was [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanse the Hanseatic League]], also known as simply The Hanse.Hansa. Founded in the 1200s, it was a mercantile and defensive confederation of the merchant guilds along the northern coast of Europe that lasted well into the 17th century. There were actually ''multiple'' Hansas early on, but the North German one got so dominant that if you just referred to ''the'' Hansa everyone knew which one you meant.
