* This is the major goal of ''[[VideoGame/StreetPassMiiPlaza Warrior's Way]]''. Which looks rather weird considering you're using your own Mii avatar as the monarch trying to rule everything.

* 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.
