* When Germany was split after the war, East Germany got [[TheStasi the Stasi]] (''[=STAatsSIcherheitsdienst=]'' = State Security Service), practically a literal German translation of this trope's name, although the derivation runs the other way. They were able to field far more agents than the Gestapo ever could, (at their height, the Stasi had one agent for every 166 citizens, while the best the Gestapo could field was one agent for every 2000 citizens). An old saying in Germany goes, "The Gestapo were bone breakers. The Stasi were '''''soul''''' breakers."

Alone that makes them just the SecretPolice (if particularly scary secret police), but what puts them into this trope is the Felix Dzerzhinsky Guards Regiment, a rather large paramilitary force (about 11,000 at its height) used to secure ultra-important government and Party facilities and generally terrorize the people when necessary.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, about the timeframe of ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', the Aldmeri Dominion is ruled by a faction known as the Thalmor, who maintain their [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Nazi-style fascist government]] by having their own special military branch. Thalmor troops are directly responsible for maintaining the ban on worshipping the god Talos within the Empire of Tamriel and have the legal right to do so thanks to a rather lopsided peace treaty between the Empire and the Dominion signed after a massive war between them. This enforcement takes the form of wandering death squads hunting down Talos worshipers.

** The Adeptus Mechanicus. Technically speaking, the Machine Cult isn't Imperium ''at all'', it's the separate (semi-)independent human empire that just happens to be in personal union with TheEmperor himself. The Inquisition is highly suspicious about them, and not always [[ProperlyParanoid without a reason]].
