Slave World 2035


Historical Timeline 2013-2035
2013

- War breaks out between Israel and Iran, shortly followed by various international allies, in what will come to be known as World War III.
- The GP (Global Protectorate) is established replacing the UN in order to prevent escalation of the conflict, signing over the majority of military power to centralized defense initiative to oppose the newly formed Iranian Block (as it is called by the protectorate leaders and advocates)
- General L. Redding is appointed to head the first protectorate task-force assigned to direct intervention in the Iranian Block. He excludes all females from military service, a move which is strong debated in the protectorate member companies.
- Successes attributed to Gen. Redding increase support for his policy, fuelling opposition to measure promoting gender equality in member states. Failures on some fronts is attributed to failure to institute this policy across the protectorate commands.
- Redding's policy is used by three other Protectorate task-forces before the year is out.
- Protectorate countries institute a draft policy, growing support of Gen. Redding's policy drive women to be given deferrals in large numbers.

2014

- Economic decline in Protectorate member states follows the growing percentage of women in the work-force, direct causation is claimed by supporters of new sexist movement.
- One member state institutes a female-only tax, under the influence of sexist movements, reasoning that properly contributing to the war effort is a burden shared mostly by men.
- The majority of protectorate units have adopted Redding's policy by this date.
- On August 28th, a ceasefire is declared, shortly followed by a capitulation of the Iranian Block.
- Treaty negotiations extend protectorate influence over the ex-Iranian Block countries, and an occupation agreement is settled, which favours protectorate member states in local issues, and brings democratic rule to the majority of the world.

2015

- Global economic collapse results from numerous protectorate member states defaulting on war debt to non-member countries. Financial institutions lose confidence, investment declines, and stocks crash as government-back securities fall apart worldwide.
- New rounds of elections see increasingly sexist-affiliated parties elected in various countries.
- Push is made for the globalization of government, several protectorate member states sign on in the first year under a local agreement.

2016

- Globalization and sexist parties begin to take control in various countries following further elections, assassinations and riots follow, prompting several protectorate members to declare martial law.
-Under protectorate martial law, the so called protectorate 'New Guard' gain prominence and begin to systematically revoke pieces of suffrage legislation.
-Women lose the right to vote in several countries.
-Economic upswing results from strict economic regulation, often attributed to sexist movements.

2017

- Riots erupt in multiple countries, and are met with extremely effective protectorate military. Police are folded into protectorate military units, and women are removed as per protectorate policy c. 2016.
-Protectorate enforced elections for districts with heaviest rioting sees multiple female politicians removed from office and replaced with so-called 'non-biased' candidates, based on presumed female bias.
-Local institutional sexism becomes commonplace as laws are enacted restricting female rights.

2018

- Further economic swings popular opinion (women excluded) in favour of the protectorate 'New Guard' and drives further legislative reform.
- Practice emerges whereby money is exchanged for marriages with women by male relatives, often to avoid tax burden created by female-only taxes, as this tax is charged to the nearest male relative if the woman is not paying it herself.
- Scientific institutions emerges to evaluate gender differences. Heavily influenced by contributions and created by sexist policy. Their information is taught in schools around the world, as 'context' for 'historic study.' Gender equality is presented as an historical aberration.

2019-2022

- Broad changes in rights law, eventually culminate in talks to form a new constitution for the protectorate government, to incorporate law into a single structure. While local law remains, the constitution is drafted and passed in under a year in 2020, and new federal protectorate laws are brought in to override the older local laws, and establish new laws.
- The New Protectorate Constitution establishes a place for a commission to be formed on the status of women.
- The commission delivers its findings and the first version of the Status of the Female Act is drafted.
- The final version of the Indenture of Females Act is passed in 2022, to be phased in within the year, to reflect the treatment of women in most protectorate countries. The act legalizes and promotes the slave trade, establishes the rights and responsibilities of females, as well as the new social structure.
- Female taxation becomes standardized under the act, and those who are unable to pay, fall under the purview of the IFA, creating mass female slavery.
- A second act is passed regulating the economic status of females, ensuring that males are the only ones allowed to occupy positions of authority, and that women can never advance in their careers as supervisors, except of other women. The passing of this second act, the Authorization of Masculine Superiority Act, plunges the majority of the remaining tax-paying females into slavery, and creates a sudden upsurge in male social status, relegating females who are not slaves to jobs supervising other women, or into menial employment

2023-2035

- Reflecting the broad education in the early part of the 10's the new status of women is reinforced by a move into the slave trade as being a primary method of economic advancement.
- Opposition to the acts establishing female slavery and male governance dwindles under harsh backlash from protectorate security.
- Male-run police forces reduce the need for martial law, and control returns to local areas.
- The BFA, Bureau of Female Affairs, begins its mandate, and slavery law is normalized across most of the protectorate states.

Megacorporations, their history and current status, 2035

In the wake of global war, the majority of infrastructure had been sabotaged, destroyed, or eliminated in favour economical war-time production lines, munitions, vehicles, robotics and electronics had taken centre stage in a new kind of warfare. In the post-war years, the corporate systems of the protectorate nations were left to resume their work, re-establish trade relationships, and with new access provided by the easing of international boundaries for trade, transport, and taxation. Re-emerging industries in conquered territories came to be easy prey for hardier multi-national corporations with massive profits from arms production. The new market began to organize itself into the mega-corporation structure. Instead of being a focused and streamlined organization, designed to develop one line of profit, the new mega-corporations expanded their original product lines into massive portfolios of companies large and small. However, brand recognition came to be first and foremost, and so, the days of subsidiaries were gone. The mega-corporations stamped their logo on everything they owned and produced, and the company that did it for them would be the one relegated to the fine print.

Megacorporations come in the form of the big three. Although others exist, the globally recognized masters of industry remain the big three. Their near-monopoly in almost every corporate sphere mean that their only competition is with each other, and to keep protectorate governments out of their affairs, a project that costs them a great deal of money, though only a tiny percentage of their bottom line.

The Big Three

MZ Global
MZ Global formed out of the massive demand of the protectorate for robotic weaponry during the war. Combining Japanese firms with aerospace companies worldwide, MZ Global was the first true mega-corporation.

It was their expansion into automated cars that saw the mass-market spread of driverless cars. In the intervening years, MZ Global has sunk into the background as the least public of the big three, and tends to produce vehicles under the so-called 'old-fashioned' brand model, using familiar brands like Ford, GM, Toyota, to differentiate price points, vehicle styles, and production location. Ultimately, the vast majority cars now sold on the general market are MZ Global produced.

Along with their domination of the vehicle market, MZ Global also dominates aerospace engineering and production. In other words, if it moves faster than you can walk, MZ Global probably got paid for some, if not all, of its parts.



Tesla Enercom PG
Developing out of the need for long-range high-capacity energy storage and transfer capability during the war, Tesla became the big name in what nobody saw. Every battery, every engine, suddenly needed to be a Tesla, and the resulting boom in the market never stopped. Electricity as a power-source became more economical than ever, could be stored longer and with far less waste, and Tesla both produced it, and stored it. Thanks to extremely optimistic spending by the Protectorate to develop new batteries, and new power-sources, Tesla acquired a great number of clean-energy and nuclear energy companies running the company into massive debt. The gamble ultimately paid off, when the debts were written off as war-expense, and Tesla surged to sudden profitability before the end of the war.

Tesla was quick to diversify, however. In the wake of the advancement of MZ Global, Tesla, with its market status assured by MZ Global's massive need for power, and the products used to make MZ Global's products fit in line with the new electric-only style of the population and infrastructure, Tesla once again bought aggressively. Tesla acquired the major names in personal computers, and home electronics, as well as moving in on telecommunications. Unlike MZ Global, however, Tesla was quick to brand itself into the public eye. Their distinctive logo took its place across every kind of technology. A keen marketing department ensured that Tesla was sold to companies first, and consumers second. If one were to look on any server, computer, or video screen in any of the high-rises reaching toward the clouds, Tesla would be there.

Atlas Dynamics
Atlas Dynamics is the model of the mega-corporation. Although it initial existence came in the form of a war-time arms company, selling precision small-arms to the protectorate, it is not thought to owe its origins to these humble beginnings. In truth, Atlas Dynamics was the result of the vision of AT Ryan, the CEO of the original Atlas Dynamics. Through the war, Atlas Dynamics made a name for itself in high-quality precision engineered weaponry. Furthermore, it did so with the use of mostly human labour. Despite being a relatively small company, it represented job growth in an otherwise stagnating war-time employment market. As such, AT Ryan took it upon himself to host a kind of summit, of the major names in his industry, and pitched to them the concept of a new kind of company. One which could make the profits of the multi-nationals, and the morals a home-town business, and a name that would come to mean quality. This vision, or rather the basic outline of it, became the expanded Atlas Dynamics. Relieved from the burden of competition, the corporations began to develop their own profit avenues, all while happily passing the business among themselves. Quality was to expected from Atlas Dynamics as a brand, while other companies could specialize in durability, or cost-effectiveness, or light-weight construction, but ensure that every contract went to the best division for the job. After the war, and the rise of MZ Global, and Tesla, Atlas Dynamics branched out, forming trade associations, and conglomerates, using their tried and true business model, a friendlier way to serve the customer, they called it.

With success, came competition. So, although Atlas Dynamics is considered one of the big three, it holds only about thirty-percent of its own market, the rest shared, though in smaller segments by most of the other mega-corporations. Atlas Dynamics manufactures, sells, and distributes just about everything. Food, clothing, music, movies, drugs, and most importantly, slaves. Atlas dynamics uses more slave labour than the other two of the big three combined, and handles more slaves as cargo or product than anyone else, including governments. Atlas has, according to expert analysis, contributed more to the rise of the permissive slavery culture than any other company, and provides services to the general public in line with this. Piercing, tattooing, surgery, and general aesthetics are industries dominated by Atlas, and its ilk. Atlas, and the class of mega-corporations it represents are closer to the average citizen than their own country. One orders of magnitude more likely to be able to name the CEO of the mega-corporation which serves most of their needs, than they are to name their government representative, or even national leader. It is safe to say the Atlas, and AT Ryan CEO for life, are household names.

Slavery and the new Criminal Underworld, 2035

Although the enactment of female slavery throughout the protectorate states took centre stage in the years following the war, other changes began to emerge alongside this that, for a short while, weakened organized crime to the extent that a great deal of formerly criminal enterprises became the territory of mega-corporations. Recreational drug use was legalized, and where possible added to medical practice. Regulation and taxation as barriers to casual users were diluted by mass production, and soon, cheaper, safer, and purer forms of most drugs were available on the market, with similar age restrictions to alcohol.

The major trade for remaining criminal organizations became weapons, and trafficking in stolen goods. Mega-corporations and developing mega-cities meant that cargo hijacking became one of the most popular crimes. However, thanks to well-supplied corporate security folded into the megacorps from private security contractors during the war, it also became a much riskier proposition.

To the extent that robbery, hijacking, and burglary became main revenue sources, it also drove a demand for hackers, and other computer experts, to navigate the increasingly automated world.

Slavery, and its enactment became a kind of renaissance for the criminal underworld. Suddenly, a product existed once more that could be provided much more cheaply by criminal organizations, by capturing and smuggling women from anti-slavery countries, into protectorate states, to be sold on the black market. Although a strictly illegal practice, criminal organizations found themselves able, once more, to enlist the help of police and authorities despite their public disapproval and supposed crackdown on the practice. Most slaves taken in this manner are sold semi-openly through bargain slave shops, and with forged papers to unsuspecting buyers. To a smaller degree, the higher-quality slaves are sold on the black-market, for higher prices than on the general market, thanks to their origins. Since slaves taken from outside the protectorate states would not have experienced the educational system, or have expected slavery, only masters seeking this particular variety of slave buy on the black-market.

Thanks to growing profits in slave markets, criminal syndicates usually have legitimate holdings through which they launder illegally obtained money, and sell slaves with forged documentation. Thanks to bribery and some official disinterest, they operate mostly unhindered, and will usually experience more trouble from other crime syndicates.

Horizon City, Criminal Elements

As the Megacorps have moved into Horizon city, so have the criminal syndicates. There are four primarily represented, the Genovese Family, the Yakuza, the Triads, and the Bratva.

Genovese Family

One of the few remaining, and powerful, Sicilian crime families, the Genovese family is a large holder of both legitimate and illegitimate holdings in Horizon city. Thanks to a very strict adherence to Omerta, the family remains mostly beyond the reach of authorities, and as such, is one of the more violent criminal syndicates in the city. Thanks to family money, the syndicate suffered less during the post-war period, and managed to open a few legitimate import/export businesses to provide revenue, these businesses have turned to less than legal cargo in the wake of slavery. Although only Sicilian men are permitted to be part of the family proper, the membership in the crime syndicate includes a great number of part-Italian members, though their involvement and access are limited.

Yakuza

Though a distinct entity, the Yakuza in Horizon city are almost exclusively associated with MZ Global. The majority of their high-level members are MZ Global executives. Definitively the most violent criminal syndicate in Horizon city, the Yakuza have grown in recent years, thanks to a massive economic boom in Japan, in part provided by MZ Global's expansion and its preference to recruit from Japan. Although the breakdown of Yakuza membership in Horizon city is not known, multiple clans are thought to be present, at least three, though they are rarely if ever in conflict, leading some to believe that they must have a centralized leader, or at least some kind of ruling council. Their trade is primarily in high-quality slaves on the black-market often stolen from countries with slavery laws, prompting some official investigations to target them specifically. Further, they trade in high-end modern weaponry. They are thought to currently be at war with at least some of the Triads, if not all.

The Triads

The loosest assembly of individual groups, the Triads are united only by their Chinese roots. The Triads tend to be involved in protection rackets and the smuggling of low-end slaves from non-slavery countries. They deal in low-end bulk deals for weaponry as well. Despite their loose associations they are thought to be at war the Yakuza. Although the inciting incident is not known, there have been multiple casualties on both sides, though the fighting tends to be isolated enough that the authorities have not taken an active role in minimizing it. The Triads tend to divide the city into smaller sections, and some triads control only a single street, or medium-size building. They deal a lot in stolen merchandise and sell most of the hijacked cargo in the city.

The Bratva

A semi-associated group of Russian gangs new to Horizon city. Only having been in the city for two years, the Bratva have made a name mostly in the smuggling of slaves. Not usually prone to outright violence against their competition, they are nonetheless internally brutal, and investigations have been hampered by key witnesses being wiped out quickly and quietly. Thought to contract out a lot of their killings, the Bratva are the number-one priority of the Horizon city police, and under investigation by the BFA, though only thanks to their newness in the city. Being the newcomer, their position is limited, and their control of any one market is limited. Their manpower, however, is driven by immigration, and not recruitment, so their numerical superiority is thought to be growing rapidly, to the point that a war with some other criminal syndicate is expected in the near future.

Horizon City, 2020-2035
The new capital of the protectorate states, and an independent jurisdiction, Horizon city is one of the major mega-cities to rise out of the war. Although its history is very short, since it headquarters all of the big three megacorps, the BFA, and the protectorate parliament, its growth has been rapid. Thanks to automated construction, and a great deal of money, in fifteen years, the city has become a bustling heavily inhabited centre for commerce. Since most of the land required no clearing and there was minimal old construction it is the most modern city in the world, and represents the new state of the protectorate perfectly. With a majority population of slaves, men with two, or more, women are not uncommon sights in the streets.

Ground-level of the city is pedestrian only, with motorways at the third-floor level and above, the private transportation in the city is mostly over-head. A fast and efficient sub-way system is in use with service across the city, and expanding as rapidly as the city is. Horizon city has a growing population well into the tens of millions, though census reports have been unable to get a grip on the rate of expansion in populations. Most of the population lives in apartment buildings, while megacorp workers are usually housed in the mega-corp buildings, which can be seen from almost anywhere in the city. Executives, specialists, and other wealthy inhabitants generally own their own properties and commute in the city centre for work. These properties are usually just smaller buildings on the outskirts of the city, or in the areas of three and four-story buildings now considered the suburbs.


In 2035, the world is changed. History has turned in a new direction, and women are enslaved. The slave trade has created, and reinstated industries solely devoted to it. Females are a commodity for sale, to do work, or for pleasure. Taxation ensures that the majority of women are enslaved, and those working in a profitable enough sector to pay stiff governmental price tag for a moderate degree of freedom, and the only women not subject to specific ownership.

These are not the only changes of course. War has left much infrastructure to be rebuilt, and in its wake, electricity is the only fuel. Automated vehicles drive the roads, while public transportation takes over most of the long-distance, and commuter transit. The world is very much recognizable, however, despite advances in clean energy, and a more automated world, daily life is very much as it was, save of course, for the vast shift in the status of women, and what that means for the public at large.



This game is based around a world in which women are broadly enslaved and men are their owners and masters. Players can either be slaves or owners, or a member of the more free tax-paying women, who while not at all equal to men, remain mostly self-determining, aside from governmental requirements. There is, naturally, a great deal of potential for extreme kinkiness, but also interesting stories. The broad acceptance of the policy does not render everyone incapable of seeing what is going on, or coming to the conclusion that it is wrong. Fighting for freedom is always going to be the goal of some, while other may try to raise themselves up within the system.

I am going to have a character who has more egalitarian ideals in private while he in public is your typical guy, who may even have a slave registered to him. He is going to run a company, I am thinking a large media conglomerate where most of the office work is done by women who are free only due to the fact that their employment there allows them to pay the taxes to keep themselves free.

That's fine. The act as-is only requires that women who are paying their tax burden not be in a superior or supervisory position to any men.

Well like I said, it is an interesting concept. Then again, I am sure something like this has been thought of way before you came up with it.
Never claimed to be the original creator... from the start I mentioned that it was derived from a comic series that can be found online... I mean there might be others who have done a similar RP but I had been inspired by those comics and hadn't seen an RP based on those before...

Call it a lack of time and patience to make the game myself and PeacethatPowerBrings being willing to make and run the game... he was the one who expressed and interest and the one I chose to get behind... if someone else makes their own game that isn't affiliated with me then I have no issue with them doing so...

However I would like to state as a totally "unbiased" person, that I feel that this game will be superior.

Yes, they're based on the same basic premise, and while they both use the same source material to a greater or lesser extent, there are some differences, which will no doubt become more profound as the games take further shape.



As for the issues surrounding people posting between threads. I want to make it clear, that from my point of view, anyone is always free to join either, or both, at their pleasure, and because of the similarity and connection between the two games, no doubt some questions, and posting between threads was to be expected.

Thank you.  ;D

This stood out to me and forms the nucleus of my concept. Having discussed it with Christa, it goes a little something like this:

My character is the designer of one of the major types of high-efficiency batteries that allow the electric car fleet to operate. However, he gets screwed out of the patents and profits by his venture capitalist co-investor, and knocked down from millionaire to garage inventor overnight.

Meanwhile, the treacherous partner has set his sights on Christa's character, and sets about ruining her father so he can't afford to pay the tax on her, forcing him to sell her. My character discovers this and decides he can't let his enemy have her, and swoops in with the last of his capital to buy her up beforehand as the first step of his Monte Cristo-an revenge plan.


I note that a lot of the masters are business men and politicians, so if we're looking for a mechanism for them all to know each other perhaps they're part of the same business roundtable, or based in the same commercial park?

Sounds like a great RP, I'm in for a slave girl. Haven't had a group RP take off for me since I joined, but this one looks like it has a lot of support.

I note that a lot of the masters are business men and politicians, so if we're looking for a mechanism for them all to know each other perhaps they're part of the same business roundtable, or based in the same commercial park?

All the characters will have to be in the same city. Their businesses may very well be in the same building, though we're talking about mega-buildings so they might have to a hop on monorail to see one another.

In terms of them all character beings more or less connected, the device may just be housing. The characters most able to easily afford slaves would probably all be of a similar socio-economic status, which means they could be congregated around a particular housing complex. Think of it like a large suburb of the city. I don't mean to limit other character choices, however, so it include multiple levels of the same building, with condominium style housing. A salaried corporate worker might have one in the mid-range provided by the company, lower, nearer-ground level ones might be bought more readily by anyone, while the upper levels would be very high-range addresses, status symbols in and of themselves.



I'll add a character sheet to the opening post. As a sideline to that. If you've already worked out your master/slave connection, that's great, but if not, we can have a slave auction as an opening device for those slaves that are public property, or were sold to a brokerage firm by their closest male relative.

For those who have expressed interest. Getting started on characters, and figuring out what initial pairings, if any, you'd like would be great.

If there is still room I'd be interested in playing. And I'll go ahead and wait and choose master or slave depending on what is needed more.
