* ''VideoGame/{{Homefront}}'' has North Korea steamrolling right over all of Southeast Asia just like Japan did in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, despite there being several very strong armed forces in the area.

* Around 200 BC, it would've been possible to go from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean while basically only crossing through three empires. From west to east, you would start in TheRomanEmpire and make your way through [[{{UsefulNotes/Iran}} the Parthian Empire]] before ending up in [[UsefulNotes/DynastiesFromShangToQing Han Dynasty China.]]
* And depending on how you define an "empire", the Cold War and the resulting hegemony of the United States basically counts. Prior to 1991 the entire world was basically split between two distinct power blocs, and after the [[TheGreatPoliticsMessUp fall of the Soviet Union]] there was now only one power left on Earth.
