Female Supremacist Theocracy
Here is a world united by the Church of Female Supremacy. Unusually for such an advanced culture, their religion is henotheistic. Many Goddesses have worshipers. One primary Goddess rules above all others. She is Nullifidia.
The Church is the government. Its benign doctrines have created a happy world. Strife, poverty, illness are known only in history books.
Nullifidian theology teaches that men are inferior. Men have been women’s slaves for ten thousand years. Slave men worship women as the human avatars of Nullifidia. The men never need punishment. Completely faithful and obedient they are happy in their slavery. Ritual sadism, dating from early times, is part of the worship of Nullifidia.
Four times a year slave men see Nullfidia’s Light. Each man believes that he has direct experience of Nullifidia and the Goddesses who are Her handmaidens. Nullfidia’s Light is joyous and ecstatic.
These quarterly transcendent experiences insure that slave men are happy with their life. No man will risk any act that would prevent an hour’s ecstasy.
Nullfidia’s Light is an illusion. The priestesses combine pharmacology, three-dimension imagery, hypnotic suggestion to create the experience. A secret that will never be revealed to any male.
