* Many parts of southern Africa that have been ravaged by the HIV/AIDS epidemic, which produced an orphan crisis as adults died of the disease. In some areas, the population pyramid is sometimes so skewed towards the young that it has compromised the basic functions of government and society, as there are precious few people with the skills needed to keep things running who aren't HIV-positive. One nation, UsefulNotes/{{Swaziland}}, has been hit so hard that the United Nations Development Programme seriously suggested that its very existence as a country may be at risk.

* The only characters in ''Manga/SchoolLive'' are teenage girls. We do see a teacher but she [[spoiler:was bitten by zombie and [[DeadAllAlong killed prior to the manga]]]]. AdaptationExpansion also gives the girls a puppy as a TeamPet who, in the manga, was a OneShotCharacter who was only shown in a brief flashback where it [[spoiler: became a [[RaisingTheSteaks zombie puppy]]]]. The 2nd half of the manga ''does'' show some surviving adults however, such as [[spoiler: some Military Soliders/Scientists who find Yuki's Ballon Letter]], a Scientist who's hiding somewhere at Saint Isidore University, and up to 9 College Students at the aforementioned University {Though some of them might be just ''barely'' older then our protagonists}.

** The droogs and the [[FutureSlang Nadsat]] slang in the ClockworkOrange are modelled after the ''stilyagi''. Anthony Burgess witnessed them while in the USSR. He himself was mugged by hoodlums who called themselves "teddy boys" in UK.
