** The Confederacy of Independent Systems, in various materials, is established as having been founded on the ideal of breaking away from the corruption of the Old Republic and founding a freer society. In point of fact, it was founded by a group of {{Mega Corp}}s and two Sith Lords, one of whom was Palpatine. Pretty much every story featuring them portrayed them as somewhere between a BananaRepublic and the Legion of Doom.

Given the name "Confederacy" is shared with [[UsefulNotes/AmericanCivilWar a real historical breakaway of questionable morals]], the points made may or may not be allusions to that particular phase of American history.

* ''VideoGame/ImperiumNova'': The United Federation of People's Republics, in ''Gemini'', mostly a FantasyCounterpartCulture of the SovietUnion, but with North Korean-style {{nepotism}} thrown in.

* ''Series/RedDwarf:'' Though it's never named, the totalitarian state in the Despair Squid's hallucination has the trappings of one of these. There are election posters which reveal that the Fascist party has been in power for ''three straight decades.'' A black-suited government agent attempts to shoot a child for stealing "an apple of the people" and addresses the crew as "voters." Then Lister is revealed to be the Voter-Colonel, who purges people in order to "purify" the voter rolls.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'': The Earthican government gives off vibes of this trop as their government is basically an inspiration and a parody of the American government today. First off they do have a president and a supreme court but the government sometimes invades other planet for resources and land ad they did this with the spheroids and spiderinians. They became more of it after Richard Nixon's head got elected into presidency and started to run more than two terms all while acting more like a dictator than a president. This government is also racist towards robots as they attempted to commit genocide on the robots in "Crimes Of The Hot" as well as mutants until the mutants gained rights. Despite all of this, they are still a primary member of DOOP.

* ''VideoGame/{{Planetside}}'': The Terran Republic is in fact a conservative and authoritarian police state seeking to seize control of Auraxis by force and then reestablish contact with Earth. In the first game they also had elements of ThoseWackyNazis and were clearly the bad guys, but for ''2'' this aspect was dropped.
