* In Oleg Makushkin's ''Crystal Lattice'', the Gaian Republic dominates the Eurasian continent in the distant future. Unlike their enemies in the Cyberempire (North America), the Gaians eschew cybernetics (at least in their bodies) and opt for genetic engineering to improve themselves. However, only about 10% of the population are males. Why? It's explained that, for some unknown reason, they haven't yet figured out how to grow genetically-engineered males, only genetically-engineered females. They could grow plain-old males in tubes, but why bother, when men can be born naturally, thus freeing up the tubes for more super-females. Thus, most jobs (including ruling and soldiering) are done by women, and men tend to be relegated to entertainment and low-ranking jobs. Heterosexual relationships are forbidden due to the male deficit, and Gaian women are taught that no woman has a right to exclusively claim a man for herself, as that would go against the common good. Most men are required to regularly attend the so-called Dating Houses, where they get to have sex with any of the women, who go there. The rest are not required to but still go out of a sense of duty. [[AManIsAlwaysEager Not that men mind this setup]]. Strangely enough, any Cybernetic man captured in battle can choose to stay in the Republic, as long as he agrees to have all the implants removed, but he is then sterilized, which makes absolutely no sense.

The Republic is a cashless society, where a person's rank determines her rations and other things like clothing and luxuries. Apparently, it's taken as the axiom that all women want to look great (note: the author is a man), so clothing and accessories are used as incentives to get women to rank up by doing their tasks well. Homosexual relationships are fairly common, although most women are at least bisexual and some are strictly hetero.

* In the french comic ''{{Anibal 5}}'', women from all over the world gather in the south pole, lure by pheromones created by a female magician. Once all women reach their destination, they will form the nation of "Clitoria".
* Due to BizarreSexualDimorphism, the Martians of the ''XXXenophile'' story "My Favorite Oitling" (a parody of green Martians from the ''Literature/JohnCarterOfMars'' novels) are this. They are fascinated by the concept of a male who can play an active role in having sex.

** 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 woeing a potential mate.

* Downplayed with the Magistracy of Canopus in ''TabletopGame/Battletech''. While it's a matriarchy and the highest ranking positions in the government are reserved for women, it's never noted that men are looked down upon or mistreated and there are no restrictions against men serving in the military (even as officers) or any other careers. In universe, the Magistracy is known for its [[FreeLoveFuture relaxed]] stance toward sex.

* In ''Argonautica'', Jason and the Argonauts come across the Island of Lemnos - populated entirely by women. They claim the rest of the men are away at war, but it's revealed that they've all been killed and sacrificed to Artemis. In the myths that say Atalanta was on the voyage - as [[TheSmurfettePrinciple the only female Argonaut]] - she is usually the one that discovers this. This isn't depicted in the Ray Harryhaussen film, but shows up in the Hallmark miniseries, [[CompositeCharacter where Lemnos seems to be combined with the Sirens]] as the women seduce the men with some kind of magic. In this version, Orpheus [[DisabilityImmunity isn't seduced either]] because he's still [[TheLostLenore grieving for Eurydice]].
