* SufficientlyAdvancedBambooTechnology: When a civilization appears to be like this, but isn't. They just like to make their technology ''look'' primitive.

* The Hatire Community from TabletopGame/StarDrive is a quasi-example of this trope. While okay with most technology, they prohibit non-essential cybernetics and generally favor a simpler lifestyle. Granted, CyberneticsEatYourSoul, but only if you abuse it.

Granted, CyberneticsEatYourSoul, but only if you abuse it. Strictly speaking the Hatires have a stronger rejection of technology within their faith, but the core principle would be 'technology to the degree that it is necessary' -- and the Hatires are ''very'' aware that if they don't keep up with the other interstellar governments and compromise on some points they're going to lose ground, let alone ''spread'' the Hatire faith.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/{{Refugees}}'': There is a debate over whether the new arrivees to the compound on the new planet should be allowed to use technology; strict limits are placed on it. Those who have been living on the planet for a long time see no need for technology.

* In ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'', the titular characters once stumble upon a world populated by Amish-looking CatFolk who are about to initiate their annual "Festival", a parody of Film/ThePurge.

* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' serial "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS15E6TheInvasionOfTime The Invasion of Time]]" had the Outsiders, a group of Gallifreyans who lived outside the cities on Gallifrey. They didn't use technology more advanced then a bow and arrow despite their race having access to time machines.

''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E12HellBent Hell Bent]]'' included a village of apparently literal Space Amish just outside the capitol who the Doctor stays with for a while.

* In ''[[EndersGame Speaker for the Dead]]'' by Orson Scott Card (and to a lesser degree, its sequels) there are references to planets in the high-tech space empire that engage in pretty primitive activities, such as whaling, but it seems to be more because these are pioneer/frontier areas that do use some technology and continue developing while taking advantage of their raw natural resources.

** In another Card work, the "Homecoming" series (''Memory of Earth'', et. al.), the human race has resettled to another planet AfterTheEnd of Earth. They're technologically simplistic, [[SchizoTech with certain exceptions]], but not through conscious choice: The original settlers created the Oversoul, a world-spanning MasterComputer / MindControlDevice, which keeps people from even ''thinking'' about the evil advanced technology that would doom the human race again.

* One episode of ''TheJetsons'' flirts with this, where George and his family settle on an asteroid, making do with what's at hand. They're happy, at least until developers find their paradise.

* In the ''Literature/{{Darkover}}'' series by MarionZimmerBradley, the human colonists on the titular planet have developed a [[FeudalFuture feudal culture]] and general level of technology. The aristocracy has and uses [[PsychicPowers psionics]] and [[PowerCrystal "matrix technology"]], which can do things that even the advanced technology of space-faring humans can't duplicate. But use of these is highly limited, and the Darkovans have a strong cultural resistance to Terran attempts to introduce regular technology into their society. It was initially patterned as a fantasy series, being revealed later in the series as a LostColony of spacefaring Earth at roughly the same time as it became a Found Colony.
