* 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}}.

* The Wolrog Empire in ''StrontiumDog'' is modeled on pre-UsefulNotes/WorldWarII Japan. The entire thing is ruled by a single Emperor who the rest of the people obey immediately and without question. Captives are regularly press-ganged into becoming soldiers and slaves to fuel the war effort. They also readily utilise kamikaze tactics; to participate in one of these is seen as the greatest honour that can be obtained.

** More obvious in the [[Characters/Warhammer40000ImperialGuard Imperial Guard]]: [[UsefulNotes/RedsWithRockets The Valhallans]], [[UsefulNotes/TheBritishEmpire Praetorians]], [[Franchise/{{Rambo}} Catachans]], [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI Death Korps of Krieg]], [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Attilans]], [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII Armageddon]] and others all descendants or counterparts of Earth culture. Given how a good number of Imperial worlds were originally settled by either the successors of modern Earth cultures or cultural revivalists, this is justified.
** Taoist Space Communists? The Tau.
