* Played straight in some of the more comedic episodes of ''AHDotComTheSeries'', when (much like ''Franchise/StarTrek'') this week's timeline is simply a planet-sized TownWithADarkSecret.

Added DiffLines:

* Played With to Hell and back in ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}''. All species have ''Traits'', biological instincts which are ingrained into them to make them, say, better sociologists, more inclined to disagree with each other, or [[BreadEggsMilkSquick happier when they have access to enslaved subjects]], and ''Ethos'' which are ideological in nature and determine which government the species has; they may, for instance, make a species more individualistic or more collectivist, more spiritual or more materialistic, or more warlike or peaceful. Traits can only be changed to a very limited degree via genetic manipulation, while ethos changes very often depending on factors such as how far the colony's population is from the homeworld or how much free thought is encouraged or suppressed by government policy. Populations with different ethos may even form divergent factions which may push for independence from your empire, peacefully [[TheWarOfEarthlyAggression or not]].

* In the ''To The Stars'' trilogy by Creator/HarryHarrison, [=EarthGov=] has not only terraformed {{Single Biome Planet}}s, they've also created a unique culture for each in order to maximise their control. For instance the agricultural planet the protagonist has been exiled to in "Wheelworld" is populated entirely by peasants and mechanics, ruled by a group of autocratic Familys.

** The Breen's hat in ''DS9'' is basically "mysterious and enigmatic", to the point that no-one knows ''anything'' about them, including what they look like under their refrigeration suits, and whether they really need the suits in the first place. In the ''Literature/StarTrekNovelVerse'', their hat is "anonymous egalitarianism"; they're a multi-species society who wear the suits so that each person is judged entirely on their merits and not as a member of whatever species they are (only one of which really needs the refrigeration properties). It's suggested that each race in the Breen Confederacy has their own hat, but given the above they try to keep quiet about it.

* Creator/JanetKagan's ''Hellspark'' is a multiple-culture universe where each of the cultures has a single quirk -- one considers feet obscene, one duels at the drop of a hat, one considers telling the truth (speaking ''accurately'') a basic requirement, etc...

There's a scene where Om im, who comes from a society with a KnifeNut hat, says as much, and points out that if he were nothing but the hat most of his colleagues would have knife holes in them by now.

* The different colonist habitats in SlowtrainToArcturus each function as a planet of hats. Justified in that each of the habitats was purchased by a group which wished to leave Earth and selected other colonists with similar interests. The particular hats are:

* ''Film/TheAmericanAstronaut'' has the Venusians which are all SouthernBelle and the people from Jupiter who are all miners; the latter is justified since it's implied they are hired from all over the galaxy.

Added DiffLines:

* Russian animation film "Third Planet From Sun" when protagonists check database about planet Shelezyaka, it says: "Planet Shelezyaka: no plants, no water, no minerals. Inhabited by robots". When they visit planet, they see, how exact this entry.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/ShadowsOfTheApt'': Every race in that world is a member of a hat (though to some degree this is justified, as their totem insect affects each race on a biological level). The Mantis-kinden are all lightning-fast and skilled in battle, the Flies are all cunning, extremely small and agile, Scorpions are big, bald, strong and bad-tempered, Beetles are MadeOfIron and stocky, Moths are delicate and mystical, Ants are superstrong and devoid of personality and Spiders are all beautiful seducers/seductresses with an innate taste for intrigue. This gets further generalized as the races get categorized as Apt or Inapt. If a character is Apt, then they'll be technologically adept and kinda unattractive, whereas the Apt are incapable of understanding technology more advanced than a lever, are good-looking and are magically capable.

* The very basis of ''{{Sliders}}'', where our protagonists would land, I mean ''slide'', into a parallel Earth defined by a key difference with "real" Earth.
