* MetalPoorPlanet: Majipoor is ten times the size of Earth, and only habitable thanks to this trope. The lack of metal leads to SchizoTech, with draft animals and {{Vibroweapon}}s existing side by side.

* FakeKing: A usurpation of this sort (carried out by [[VoluntaryShapeshifting the Metamorphs]], no less) drives the plot of ''Lord Valentine's Castle.'' (FridgeLogic: The Metamorphs were the original inhabitants of the planet, [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything who were cruelly dispossessed by the invading humans and confined to small areas of their original homelands in a tragic story not even vaguely reminiscent of the history of the American Indians]]. Given that they could impersonate any member of the planet's (decidedly hierarchical and not very democratic) government, you have to wonder why it took them ''fourteen thousand years'' to come up with the plot in the first place.)

Majipoor is a very large planet, although its low density and lack of heavy metals means that its gravity is similar to Earth's. Although it's a remote backwater, several different species live on the planet, including humans, who constitute the majority of the population, and the shape-shifting native Piurivar. The society is agrarian and feudal, ruled by the Coronal, who lives in a great castle atop Castle Mount; the Pontifex, who is always the previous Coronal, and who lives deep underground in The Labyrinth; the Lady of the Isle of Sleep, who is always the Coronal's mother, and who sends dreams to the planet's inhabitants; and the King of Dreams, who lives on the remote continent of Suvrael, and who sends nightmares to punish wrongdoers.

wrongdoers.

In the first book (as the series was written), Lord Valentine, the current Coronal, has lost his memory, and must make his way across the planet on a journey of self-discovery. The next two books, ''Majipoor Chronicles'' and ''Valentine Pontifex'' also focused on Lord Valentine, but other books in the series, especially the prequels, have simply shared the setting.
