* ''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]].

[[AC:{{Literature}}]]
* In the ''Literature/InheritanceCycle'', the main governing body is called TheEmpire, even though it is ruled by a king and has a centralized government. In the second book, we find out that officially, it is called the Brodering Kingdom. The major cities are ruled by governors. How much power those governors officially have is never stated, but with Galbatorix spending all his time [[spoiler: finding the Name of Names]], at least one of those governors, Marcus Tabor, essentially had free rein for a while. The soldiers of Feinster are far more loyal to their governor, Lady Lorana, than to Galbatorix.

** While the Kingdom of Hyrule itself has been destroyed for a century in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', the various realms ruled by the non-Hylian races survived the Great Calamity and are shown to have similarly simple governmental structures. The [[FishPeople Zora]] have the most complex of these governments, and based on what we see it consists only of the king, his son/heir, a royal advisor, and a secretary.

** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' plays it straight. You hardly ever get a glimpse of how the Empire and its people roll, and the plot only deals with the demon invasion, with no quests that involve political intrigue when compared to ''Morrowind'' (see below), it is one of the reasons why ''Oblivion'' is such a [[BrokenBase polarizing game among the fanbase]]. For example, the Elder Council is supposed to be an advisory body to the Emperor and rule in the Emperor's name if he's incapacitated. You never meet or hear about anybody who is actually on the council, aside from Chancellor Ocato, who you only talk to a few times, never provides any sort of help and seems to be the only person that sits in the enormous Council Chamber. There was [[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally supposed to include]] a questline that would involve the PlayerCharacter climbing through the ranks of nobility, eventually becoming a count. Presumably, this quest would have been much more involved in politics and would have averted this trope to a degree, however the questline was DummiedOut as the devs felt it distracted from the main quest.
