** Paraguay after the WarOfTheTripleAlliance even more so: The Pope even allowed polygamy for a while, because 90% of the male population (an inverse Decimation if you will) got themselves killed.

Considering the large number of male-dominated societies in existence it is understandable that fiction is open to the idea of the women occasionally wielding ultimate power. Lady Land extends the idea to an extreme level.

In a Lady Land the population is predominantly female. Males may be considered inferior, used as [[SexSlave sex slaves]], or even [[{{Gendercide}} expelled or murdered]]. This may create problems by leaving said society with no obvious method of reproducing outside of the sex slaves option. There's a very good chance that this issue will be brought up in-story, along with the issue of what happens to any male children born in a no-man zone.

If there are no males at all this becomes a OneGenderRace. Naturally, a proper Lady Land will be ruled by a {{Matriarchy}}. See ImprobablyFemaleCast for when the cast is mostly or entirely female without an adequate explanation in the setting. Contrast NoWomansLand, the all-male equivalent. See also PersecutionFlip.

* In the second TheHeroesOfOlympus novel we discover that amazon.com is run by actual amazons. They ''like'' men - in their place - which seems to be providing manual labor for the company. We never find out how the men feel about it but for at least some being sex-objects to beautiful, buff amazons might seem like a pretty sweet deal.

* Being a game mainly about lesbians, almost all the main EmbricOfWulfhammersCastle male cast are idiots, perverts, and\or villains. If they're not at least one of those, they're actually women.

** In ''Videogame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', Gerudo City has a strict ban on males from entering, meaning that for Link to get in he has to [[DisguisedInDrag disguise himself in women's clothing.]] This is {{Deconstructed}}, as well: the reason for the ban is not out of animosity towards men, but rather to encourage Gerudos to venture out into the world and find a mate instead of settling. This tradition isn't without its difficulties, however: Gerudos tend to be awkward when talking to Hylian men, and there is a special class in Gerudo Town dedicated to the art of wooing a potential mate. And several married Gerudo openly vent to you about the law meaning that when market season comes and they come back to the city to sell their wares, they have to leave their husbands and any male children back home and don't like being separated from them.

* However, in ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Friendship Is Magic]]'''s (2010) setting, Equestria is home to civilized ponies of both male and female persuasion. [[WordOfGod Lauren Faust]] explicitly says the guys are all working voluntarily for pay. For whatever it's worth, in RealLife, horses do behave in a matriarchal fashion.

** Throughout the series, this seems to be the case for the priesthood of Dibella, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Aedric Divine]] Goddess of Beauty, who is also associated with the more carnal and sexual aspects of love. There doesn't seem to be a specific rule precluding men from her priesthood, but the vast majority of it is made up of women nonetheless.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/BodyBlows'': The planet Feminon introduced in Body Blows Galactic is this as an entire planet. To quote the other Wiki "An Earth-type planet ruled by women, where men are only accepted as lesser beings."
