** 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 [[BigFancyHouse enormous]]) are the Sultan and Jasmine. ''Foreign'' leaders show up more often than any government employees of Agrabah do.

** The only time we actually see something relating to a real government function is in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'', when Ordona, a foreign nation apparently long ago annexed by Hyrule, prepares to participate in a ceremonial renewal of feudal ties.

** However, the newer episodes like [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E10PrincessSpike Princess Spike]] do portray Equestria as TheFederation with each settlement having autonomy to run their own affairs with sending delegations to Canterlot for conference.

* ''Franchise/StarTrek'' uses this a lot, due primarily to the LawOfConservationOfDetail: the protagonists and antagonists are chiefly military personnel so most of the civilian workings are off-screen.
** The Federation, overall. There are frequent references made to the Federation Council as a legislature, and the current President of the Federation appears in a two-parter in ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', but as the stories chiefly revolve around Starfleet most of the Federation's civilian legal workings are off-screen, and some of the lines are blurry: Website/StarDestroyerDotNet has observed among other things that Starfleet's military justice system seems to have some jurisdiction in civilian cases, with uniformed admirals appearing in judgment of civilians. The Franchise/StarTrekExpandedUniverse goes into more detail: the Federation government is looked at particularly closely in ''Literature/StarTrekArticlesOfTheFederation'', a novel which is essentially a GovernmentProcedural.
** The Klingon Empire has the High Council, led by the Chancellor, plus a [[AuthorityInNameOnly powerless figurehead emperor]] starting in season six of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''. There's also references to a FeudalFuture system of noble houses but little actual detail.
** The Romulan Star Empire has the Senate, led by the Praetor. Amusingly we get more detail on the nation's StateSec, the Tal Shiar, than we do on the actual government.



* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' series: Besides Princess Zelda, the guards, and sometimes a mayor, Hyrule appears to be more a loose confederacy of autonomous city-states than a kingdom

* A major focus in ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'' is the functioning of the civilian government of the fleet and the interactions it has with the military.

* There is an intricate system of military governors (Moffs) in the ''StarWars'' universe, although The Emperor and Vader still maintain the majority of decision-making power. The prequels show the ''massive'' Senate building that serves as the legislative core of the Republic.

** Tyrion mentions in A Clash of Kings that the Iron Thrones Treasury equivalent is composed of a considerable number of officials and part of the background events of A Feast For Crows is rebuilding the Navy after it either sided with an usurper in Clash and Varys' system of little birds is also technically part of the government. It is unclear whether the Iron Throne possesses a similar law enforcement bureaucracy under the Master of Laws.
