* The LemonyNarrator of [[FanFic/EquestriaAHistoryRevealed Equestria: A History Revealed]] seems to believe she's living in one, with Celestia's secret police, fallacy police, and paranoid police. But with that last one, coupled with her ConspiracyTheorist nature, it's [[PlayedForLaughs probably just all in her head.]]

* ''Series/Colony" has an very efficient one, with a policy of disappearing anyone who might advocate against or resist the new regime, and huge. Helped by the fact that it is backed by a force of machine gun armed drones, who appear to have eliminated most soldiers and politicians who were not co-opted by the occupation, and, impliedly, alien warships in orbit.

TruthInTelevision, of course, [[Administrivia/NoRealLifeExamplesPlease but we won't list them]]. It's not always obvious when a country is one of these.

* ''VideoGame/XCOM2'''s ADVENT Administration is a [[VichyEarth global totalitarian government]] established after aliens invade and world governments surrender after the titular XCOM Project from ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'' fails to combat the aliens. Ostensibly, it is run by human officials in cooperation with benevolent aliens, and is protected by an army of [[HalfHumanHybrid apparently human]] [[LesCollaborateurs ADVENT Peacekeepers]]. In reality, ADVENT Troopers enforce a global police state that monitors all communication and public activity in city centers. They favor ID scanners in the streets, military checkpoints on seemingly every other block, patrols kitted out with assault weapons, automated turrets in public places, and a massive electronic/psionic surveillance system that links everything together. It doesn't help that all ADVENT forces wear [[FacelessMooks heavy eye-concealing helmets]].

** Played straight in in "The Beast Below", where England [[AC: InSpace]] is turned into one of this. The government is keeping a secret and any dissidents who try to find out what happened are fed to the eponymous Beast Below. The Doctor figures this out pretty quickly since nobody is visibly reacting to his usual weirdness and nobody stops to inquire why a child is crying. They are too afraid.

* ''Film/ChildrenOfMen''''Film/ChildrenOfMen'': In 2027, after 18 years of global human infertility, civilization is on the brink of collapse as humanity faces extinction. The United Kingdom, the only stable nation with a functioning government, is deluged by asylum seekers fleeing the chaos and war which have taken hold around the world. In response, Britain has become a militarized police state as British government forces round up and detain immigrants.
