* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'': Despite the name, this is a more fitting description of the Empire, due to the high degree of autonomy enjoyed by the Elector-Counts and the smaller regions that they control.

** The Solarian League is an extremely corrupt but non-expansionist version of the Federation, choking under its' own weight and leaving many border worlds to their own devices.
** The newly created Star Empire of Manticore is something of a HegemonicEmpire, with the Talbott Quadrant voting for annexation by Manticore and retaining their own Prime Minister and parliament separate from those of the Old Star Kingdom. Both member nations subject to the Queen of Manticore and sending representatives to the Imperial Parliament.



* In ''[[VideoGame/CrusaderKings Crusader Kings II]]: VideoGame/CrisisOfTheConfederation'', the Terran Confederation is a loose federation that governs all of Terran space. At the beginning of the game, the Confederation's outer rim breaks away and forms several new states, many of which also fit this trope, though others fit a wide variety of governmental forms. Furthermore, the very idea of democracy is starting to lose its legitimacy within the Confederation, and many groups are starting to agitate for military rule instead.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'' an Alliance with at least four member nations can reform into a Federation with a presidency that rotates between the members and an independent space navy with access to the best technologies of all the member nations. It's also possible for an interstellar nation to call itself a federation, and depending on their ethos incorporate citizens of several species, adopt democratic governments, or vassalize other nations. Or recreate the Terran Federation of ''Starship Troopers.''

* Although mentioned as early as [[OlderThanTheyThink the first game's]] [[AllThereInTheManual manual]], ''{{Metroid}}'''s Galactic Federation rarely got more than a passing mention until ''Fusion''. In ''MetroidPrime 3'', it's presented as a fairly typical good-guy federation. The ''MetroidFusion'' interpretation of it is starting to subvert this trope, as their goals are becoming more ruthless and self-serving. Samus could also be seen as an enemy of this more sinister Federation following her actions in ''Fusion'' as well.
* ''VideoGame/{{F-Zero}}'s'' Galactic Space Federation is also one of the many, many similarities between the respective settings of this series and that of ''{{Metroid}}.''
* The Union in ''{{Drakengard}}'', fighting TheEmpire.

* The Lycian League in ''FireEmblem: Sword of Seals'' and its prequel, ''Blazing Sword'', are a group of small territories, each ruled by a marquess. In ''Sword of Seals'', they fight TheEmpire, but in ''Blazing Sword'' [[DeconstructedTrope they mostly squabble amongst themselves]]. Hector's home province of Ostia is the largest, making his brother Uther [[LateArrivalSpoiler (and later, Hector himself)]] the closest thing the League has to an overall leader. Some endings of ''Sword of Seals'' have the main character, Roy, picking up where Hector left off, unifying the territories into a single kingdom (especially if he marries Hector's daughter, Lilina).
* The Peacekeeping Forces faction in ''SidMeiersAlphaCentauri''. The [[TheSpartanWay Spartan Federation]] also qualifies if Democratic social engineering is used, but is much different from the Peacekeepers (being a far more militaristic and paranoid state).

* The Alliance in ''WorldOfWarcraft'' is a fantasy example of this trope. Although it would at first glance appear to be TheAlliance, the only portion of the Alliance that ''doesn't'' fit this trope right down to the letter is its lack of centralized leadership, which appears to be changing with the return of Varian Wrynn centralizing power around the humans of Stormwind. The Alliance's counterpart, the Horde, resembles a (mostly) good version of TheEmpire due to its centralized leadership, the Warchief commands the entire Horde, and its thirst for conquest.

* The United Federation in ''SonicTheHedgehog'', an human federation styled after the United States, with a president and all. Its armed forces is named G.U.N. and it primary mission is to fight back the Eggman Empire and other enemies to the federation, such as [[EldritchAbomination Chaos]] and the [[AlienInvaders Black Arms]]. Once in conflict with Team Sonic, they're now (mostly) allies to the main characters. The United Federation also appears in the Archie Comic version, now as an ally to the Republic of Acorn and an active player in the Second Robotnik War. They were also the ones who nuked Eggman Empire's former capital city the Old Robotropolis.

* The Commonwealth Minutemen in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' can potentially form the framework for an organisation similar to the NCR in the early years, uniting several settlements and offering mutual protection in exchange for supplies. Unlike the NCR, this depiction is entirely sympathetic, and the Minutemen are strong candidates for the most ethical faction in the post-apocalyptic United States. There was also the Commonwealth Provisional Government, which was an attempt to form this [[spoiler:before the Institute came along and ruined it.]]
