* ''Series/TheThickOfIt'' essentially presents the British government as this to the rest of Britain; a bunch of cloistered, out-of-touch technocrats, policy wonks, media-management types and career politicos working in a bunch of nice, expensive glass-walled offices who are almost all both slightly afraid of and scathingly contemptuous towards the ordinary people they supposedly serve and represent.

* In ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' the Dwarven Nobility tend to operate like this. Once installed in the luscious and expensive rooms that they demand to have, they will occasionally make other demands, such as "build 2 metal chairs" or "I want a glass window in my room". They will make demands even if the fort lacks the necessary resources to fulfill these demands, such as sand for making glass or coal for smelting metal. They can also order the guards to dispense justice should their demands be ignored. However, they will often order justice to be delivered upon dwarves who could not possibly do anything wrong, simply because it was not their job.

* ''Film/InTheLoop'', the film spin-off from ''Series/TheThickOfIt'' (see below) continues the show's depiction of the British government as basically this to the whole of Britain. It's best illustrated through the contrast between the Minister of International Development foolishly involving himself in grand matters of world-shaking geopolitical intrigue while, back in his home constituency, one of his constituents just wants him to do something about the wall of his office, which is collapsing into his mum's back garden. [[spoiler: This ends up screwing the Minister when his political opponents in the former matter use his complete disinterest in doing anything about the latter matter to bury him in the media.]]

* ''VideoGame/SpaceStation13'' subverts this trope. Yes, the Command/Administration section is mostly staffed by [[ObstructiveBureaucrat Obstructive Bureaucrats]]. However, most of said bureaucrats have universal or near-universal access. Therefore, things going ''really'' [[AlienInvasion so]][[TheMutiny uth]] often results in some pencil-pusher [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass breaking into the armory and going full Rambo]].
