** And as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpKmG7mDaDM explained here]] there's another reason for having the Holy Roman Empire identify only as "TheEmpire" in many documents as it was an essential part of Western Christian teology that can only be one empire in the world, a Universal and Christian empire that could only be one due to the teological concept of ''translatio imperii'' from the Roman Empire.

Added DiffLines:

* The other SpiritualSuccessor ''VideoGame/PandoraFirstContact'' has the Imperium, Divine Ascension, Togra University, Noxium Corporation, Terra Salvum, Solar Dynasty, and Ambassadors.

* In the ''VideoGame/{{X}}'' series, the named governments are the Argon Federation, the Boron Kingdom, the Paranid Empire, the Split Dynasty, and the Teladi Company.


* While averted in the first two games in ''VideoGame/MasterOfOrion'' franchise (every power was called an empire, regardless of the race or the form of government), it's played straight in the reboot, where each race has both a unique faction name as well as a ruler title. This even applies to the two human powers: the Human Republic (President) and the Terran Khanate (Khan). Only two ruler titles are similar (the Bulrathi Emperor and the Mrrshan Empress), but their governments have different names (the Bulrathi Empire and the Mrrshan Pride). Many of these government names are pretty unique, such as the Psilon Quanta, the Silicoid Crag, and the Trilarian Shoal. Minor races also have government names, all of which come from RealLife types of rule (e.g. Degonite Kritarchy, Thersonian Timocracy, Zarkonian Chiefdom).

* ''Literature/TheLostFleet'' has the Alliance, the Syndicate Worlds, the Rift Federation, and the Callas Republic.


* The latest developments in the Franchise/StargateVerse put this trope into play in the Milky Way. We have the Tau'ri (Earth military forces under the UN Security Council, spearheaded by the United States), the Lucian Alliance, and the Free Jaffa Nation. The Goa'uld Empire would fit the list if it still existed.

*** The Franchise/StarTrekNovelVerse has also brought us the Typhon Pact, a coalition of the "main" Romulan Empire, the Gorn, the Tholians, the Breen, the Tzenkethi, and the Kinshaya. They banded together for mutual protection, just like the Federation, making them a different kind of adversary than the UFP usually faces.

* In RealLife no country can legally have the same name as an already existing country, as several international treaties prevent it and also will have a problem entering the UN. Similar names can be accepted though (example the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Republic of Congo) but polemics over two states using the same name exist in the international comunity as for example the cases of Korea and China. The Republic of China (Taiwan) for example uses China-Taipei in several international situations (like the Olympics) and the pro-independence faction was planning to enter the UN using the name Taiwan. Another complex example of two countries fighting over a name is the polemic over Macedonia, which was settled after Macedonia agreed to change it official name to Northen Macedonia easing relationships with a wiry Greece who claims ownership over the region of the historical Macedonia (which is not Northern Macedonia, or that is what the Greeks claim). This may allow Northern Macedonia to enter the UE and other organizations without worrying for Greece's veto.

** In Spanish and Portuguese there are still two places named America; the country better known as United States and the continent of America (North and South America are considered one single continent in the Latin world), whilst this is not the case in English and other languages were North America and South America are two different continents thus America can only be apply to the country. This causes a lot of controversy as many Spanish and Portuguese speaking peoples find offensive the use of America in reference to the United States and their citizens. The term American (Americano) is another source of controversy as in Spanish and Portuguese is the demonym for the natives of the continent and even the Spanish Royal Academy which oversees the use of the Spanish language recommends its use for the native of the continent and for the citizen of the US recommends instead using Estadounidense (roughly translated as United Statean). American in English itís also the demonym for the native of The Americas (as in Organization of American States) but rarely use in that context.
