* In ''The Literature/{{Foundation}}'' books, Hari Seldon determines that the fall of the Empire is inevitable, to be followed by 30,000 years of chaos before a new empire arises. He puts into place a plan that would rebuild the empire in ''only'' 1,000 years.\\
** In a curiously [[ThoseWackyNazis tasteless]] regional allusion, the German first edition was actually released under a title translating to "The thousand-year plan".

* The UsefulNotes/HolyRomanEmpire was, at the time of founding, considered a continuation of the UsefulNotes/RomanEmpire and the fourth and last "world monarchy" predicted by the Book of Daniel (after Babylon, Persia and Macedonia). It was believed that, since Rome was the last wordly empire, it would last literally until Judgement Day.

* The above interpretation of The Bible takes place in ''Kingdom Come'' from the LeftBehind series, during which only "glorifieds" and "naturals" who have put their faith in Jesus Christ will be allowed to live to the end of the Millenium, while [[DeathsHourglass "naturals" who stay unbelievers by the time they reach 100 years of age will die and go to Hell.]] [[LaResistance The Other Light faction]] sees GodIsEvil because of this and has prepared for this contingency by passing down their teaching to the next generation of its converts so that the generation that gets to [[FinalBattle confront God and Jesus at the end of the Millennium]] will be "assured victory" when [[SealedEvilInACan Satan is released.]] [[CurbStompBattle Unfortunately for them,]] [[YouCantFightFate it didn't turn out as they hoped.]]

[[note]]aprox. generations (aprox. 25,000 years).[[note]]This was reconciled in the ExpandedUniverse by stating that the Republic as a whole has existed and been protected by the Jedi for 25,000 years, but that 1,000 years before the films the Ruusan Reformation restructured the Republic and formed the government that lasted until it was replaced by the Empire.[[/note]]

** Interestingly, the imperial family of Japan is one of the few royal houses to actually manage a thousand-plus year reign. Officially they have ruled Japan since 660BCE, although firm evidence only exists dating back around 1500 years. Admittedly, they had very little power for most of that time, but the fact they managed to endure so long is pretty impressive.
