* ''ComicBook/{{Iznogoud}}'': Baghdad, especially from the Tabary era onwards, but already in the Goscinny era. Not only it's governed by the oblivious Caliph and the evil Iznogoud, but HumansAreBastards in that city, and most citizens are {{hypocrite}}s who complain all the time about Iznogoud's ruthlessness but are willing to help him for a few bucks, despite knowing the consequences if he's ever successful. In the story mentioned above where Iznogoud becomes the Caliph for a short time by changing bodies with him, after he starts unleashing his tyranny, one guy [[WhatTheHellHero berates]] the wizard who helped him, but the latter doesn't seem to regret it.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Quite a lot of King's Landing in the Crownlands can be said to be this underneath some lovely or even outright stunning architecture, in a StepfordSmiler kind of way. Flea Bottom, however, doesn't try masking what it is, at all.

* ''Series/TheWire'': AvertedTrope. While the lion's share of the show takes place in neighborhoods of Baltimore where everyone is either a drug dealer or a drug addict, the show takes time out to illustrate there are nice parts of UsefulNotes/{{Baltimore}}. Further, it takes a close and careful look at how such disparate places can be so close together and yet so far apart. As Bubbles says when riding with [=McNulty=] in season 1, "Thin line 'tween heaven and here."

** In the season 4 premiere, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Di2H2cbekE a lecturer is giving a presentation]] to Western District cops on [[TheWarOnTerror counterterrorism]]. Santangelo isn't too impressed by the lecturer, eventually interrupting to say, "No disrespect to your appendix, but if them terrorists do fuck up the Western, could anybody even tell?" which draws laughter from the other cops as they take their turns poking jabs at the counterproductiveness of counterterrorism training in their district.

* Shareen in ''ComicBook/PathfinderWorldscape'' is the capital city of an alternate dimension populated by killers, fighters and thieves from all over the multiverse, usually the worst of the worst make their home here and they prey on the weaker all the time. The only reason it isn't a completely lawless state is because its governed by a DeadlyDecadentCourt who is just as bad as their subjects and the local faith is a repressive ReligionOfEvil that takes its job very seriously in rooting out heresy and the guilty are forced to fight in the [[GladiatorGames arena]].
