* In the animated version of ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'', the entire planet of Meridian seem to be run by a single monarch, assisted by a couple of advisors. In a particularly {{egregious}} scene in the second series, Elyon was asked to negotiate a boundary dispute between two groups of farmers. You'd think there'd be some sort of regional governor to see to such matters.

** This continues in the series; they never got a new vizier. Basically the only people who seem to live ''or'' work in the palace (which is [[BigFancyCastle enormous]]) are the Sultan and Jasmine. ''Foreign'' leaders show up more often than any government employees of Agrabah do.

** This continues in the series; they never got a new vizier. Aladdin was appointed, but he held it off. Basically the only people who seem to live ''or'' work in the palace (which is [[BigFancyCastle enormous]]) are the Sultan and Jasmine. ''Foreign'' leaders show up more often than any government employees of Agrabah do. In one episode, it is mentioned that there is a bureaucracy that Razoul answers to who handle paperwork for things like personnel reassignments, but that's never elaborated upon.

* ''Fanfic/{{Ripples}}'' averts this trope in practice and implies a justification for it in [[WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}} the cannon show]]. Meridian is largely aristocratic government with some smaller tribe communities and a few individual territories with unique government, but a large number of major noble houses declared against Phobos in the CivilWar following his ascension to the throne. Much of Van's work has been ensuring that this Phobos doesn't get pushed to the point where he needs to decimate anyone not loyal to him; presumably the reason for Meridian's SkeletonGovernment in the original timeline.

* The Mushroom Kingdom and the Koopa Kingdom from ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' fall under this, it's never really shown that they have any officials so to speak other than the princess and/or a king and a bunch of random advisers and, perhaps, the Mushroom Chancellor from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG''. The former also has no real shown army or method of defense other than "call Mario and Luigi to sort out their problems". We can see why everyone likes Peach then, apparently they have no taxes and their "defense budget" consists of giving Mario some cake.Slightly better in Super Star Saga, where there are some officials related to the relations between the Mushroom and Beanbean Kingdoms. The Beanbean Kingdom also seems like more of an established Monarchy.

* The World Government of ''Manga/OnePiece'' was at first only seen through its military, but that's somewhat [[JustifiedTrope justified]] as the main characters of One Piece were criminals. As the series progressed, more was shown about its system of governing and politics began playing a larger role as the main characters became more wrapped up in [[GovernmentConspiracy hidden plots and intrigue]].
