** The Batarians are space North Koreans. The Batarian Hegemony is a hermit kingdom with a Stalinist political system whose leaders hate the (very Western) human Alliance but lack the military muscle to beat them, so they bankroll criminals and terrorists to strike at them.

** The Batarians are space North Koreans. The Batarian Hegemony is a hermit kingdom with a Stalinist political system whose leaders hate the (very Western) human Alliance but lack the military muscle to beat them, so they bankroll criminals and terrorists to strike at them. They also have a highly authoritarian government which tightly controls what the Batarian public do and do not hear from their media.

Added DiffLines:

* The BattlestarGalacticaReimaginedSeries is ''incredibly'' guilty of this, with a very earthlike civilization (that bounces between the 1930s and the mid 21st century technology- and culture-wise) that uses the Latin script and is based on Greco-Roman mythology, yet for some obscure reason takes place over a hundred millenia years ago. Albeit the remainder of the human race resettles on our Earth, they voluntarily leave all technology behind in the process. AlienSpaceBats are responsible for humanity not only recreating colonial culture 150,000 years later, but also (for the mediterranean offshoot) to reinvent their script and belief system for no good reason whatsoever.

Added DiffLines:

* The Romulans as portrayed in the ''Literature/{{Rihannsu}}'' novels are modeled on the Roman Republic, though the ''names'' Romulus and Remus and the terms "senator" and "praetor", among others, are actually Federation-assigned terms that often aren't actually accurate translations (e.g. the Romulan word ''deihu'', translated as "senator", is actually closer to "clan elder").

** The Andermani Empire was explicitly inspired by its founders to be Space Prussians, although most of the population is originally Chinese in origin. Grayson was founded by what were, essentially, descendants of American Southern Baptists and much of their culture is still recognizably American.

* ''Literature/TheMakoSaga'': Auran culture is effectively identical to modern America right down to people's names, which makes for some AerithAndBob moments for the notably ''non''-Earthlike names of planets. They also apparently had literal Space Romans at some point, considering the main ship in the series is named AS ''Praetorian''. This, along with the fact the Aurans and offshoot Alystierians are biologically human plus or minus a couple fractions of a percent genetically, is given a parallel evolution {{handwave}}.
