Dista and Testa, two sides of one planet ... Testa is the male dom side
The planet CORPORA is situated in another galaxy millions of light years from our own. It is quite small, containing two land masses, each about the size of Australia. The soil is fertile and the climate temperate.
In view of the unimaginable size of the Universe, it is perhaps not altogether surprising that life has developed on the same human lines as Earth. The two land masses are separated by a vast ocean and there is no contact between them. Each has developed on different social lines. TESTA is entirely ruled by males; DISTA is entirely ruled by females.
On TESTA the females are mere chattels and slaves of men, who dominate every aspect of their lives. Indeed, the females are treated more like beasts than human beings.
On DISTA the exact opposite is the case and females completely rule the roost.
Life is very simple on both continents. It is very like being in the Middle Ages on Earth. No electricity ... just candles, oil lamps and wood fire. No motorised transport ... just walking. The main occupation on both land masses is agriculture, though there are specialists in every other form of human activity; hut and house building, furniture making, silver and goldsmiths, whip-makers, iron-makers (chains, manacles and the like), wine-makers and, of course, SLAVERS!
