* When your founding father [[RedOctober Vladimir Lenin]] repeatedly states his eagerness for what he calls the "Worldwide Conflagration", and tries to put it into action in various stages, it is a fair bet you are aiming for this. In fact, the original idea for the generically-named Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was that it would be a world government in which each nation-state was a Soviet Socialist Republic of that union. In theory, of course, the aim was "global liberation" rather than "global domination"... this would all be checked by the rise of Stalin, who believed that "Socialism in One Country" was more realistic and necessary to allay Capitalist fears.

* In ParadoxInteractive games like the ''VideoGame/EuropaUniversalis'' series or the ''VideoGame/HeartsOfIron'' series it's a challenge to take over the world before the time limit is reached. This is called a 'World Conquest' or WC in the community and is a common SelfImposedChallenge if attempted with a small, weak country.

* Do note that the Soviet Union after Lenin ''is not'' an example because it expected that eventually, the rest of the world would liberate itself from the shackles of Capitalism - and that when it did, the Soviet Union's role would be to help the proletariat in its struggle, not act as their overlord or conqueror. Although it integrated most Russian-speaking territories into its own Republics during World War Two the Soviet Union conceded the nominal independence of others whilst also safeguarding against any defections to the Capitalist bloc. Throughout the Cold War the Soviet Union attempted neither to expand its territory nor extend its political domination--[[UsefulNotes/SovietInvasionOfAfghanistan allegedly]]--though it did play a very active role in "supporting" anti-Imperial liberation movements throughout Africa, Asia, and the Americas.
