* ''Manga/OnePiece'' has the island of Amazon Lily, home of the Kuja tribe, which consists entirely of women trained in the ways of the warrior and where men are forbidden. While it is stated that women of the island leave and return pregnant (and ''always'' give birth to daughters), the population at large knows so little about men that it takes the eldest one in a group to even ''identify'' naked Luffy as male. In a semi-example, there is also the Momoiro Island, home to the Kamabakka Kingdom, where everybody is a transvestite.
** And guess [[ChivalrousPervert which one]] of the Straw Hats gets [[IronicHell trapped there...]]

* Appparently, Earth in ''Anime/ArmitageIII'' is this. {{Straw Feminist}}s have achieved such political power that women's rights have soared past "equal to men" to "the status of White South Africans during Apartheid". Much of Mars' human population is male because A: men who are sick of women being in charge flock there, and B: women don't want to live in a colony where they have to give up their legal supremacy. In fact, this ultimately leads to the threat of TheWarOfEarthlyAggression that drives the series' plot: [[spoiler: upon finding out that Martians have succeeded in producing "Thirds", a category of RidiculouslyHumanRobot that goes beyond a mere SexBot to being able to ''reproduce with humans'', the feminist political group panics at this threat to their power. They demand Mars cease producing Thirds and destroy the ones it has created, or else they will invade and force them to do. Even before open warfare erupts, they are willing to send assassins and saboteurs to force Martian compliance.]]

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' has several examples: The Asari are a OneGenderRace of women and the few men on their planets are all aliens. On Tuchanka, Wrex set up for the female Krogan to form their own all-female clans. Since they are just as big and strong as the males and there are only very few remaining fertile females in the entire species, all of the male clans want to be on their good side or they simply won't get any more chances to breed new sons for their own clans. And even if one clan would try to capture females, the female clans would just have to ask all the other male clans to get them back. And then there are also the Salarians who similar to insects consist of a small number of female matriarchs and much larger numbers of male drones. While only a very small minority, politics is the exclusive domain of women.

* A large number of Native American tribes are either matrilineal or matriarchal. Some well-known examples include Navajo, Iroquois, and Cherokee. It should noted that gender roles in many Native American societies are very differentiated. But in general, the Native American women usually have more power in terms of inheritance, welfare, domestic issues, property ownership, and even selections of chiefs in their clan; while male chiefs responsibilities are limited to hunting, waging war, and negotiation with tribes.

** Also accounting has long been a traditionally female activity and largely remains so for domestic purposes. While it is often the husband who earns the households income, it is he who receives an allowance from his wife, instead of the wife being given a budget for groceries and household items. [[note]]It should noted that Japanese men are often away from their homes either at work or in combat. And this is still true in modern Japan with men often away from work in very long work hours.[[/note]]

* In the HGame ''Meet and Fuck: Star Mission'', the Human male has been nearly driven to extinction by "a succession of wars". Men are state property and HumanResources, used solely for breeding. Their rarity has lead to their classification as a [[EndangeredSpecies protected life-form]].

* Another ''Franchise/StarWars'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5127107/1/Caught-Between-a-Rock-and-a-Hard-Place Caught Between a Rock and a Hard Place]]'' has Han and Leia forced to land on a planet where the northern half of the planet is this. While they try to survive and find a way to get a distress signal out, Han reluctantly finds himself having to take the role of Leia's slave and has to do a lot of walking around naked or nearly naked, and Luke ends up naked too when he arrives near the end of the story.

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 improbably female with or without an explanation in the setting. Contrast NoWomansLand, the all-male equivalent. See also PersecutionFlip.

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 the power. Lady Land extends the idea to an extreme level.

In a Lady Land, the most common feature is that the population is predominantly female. Males in this country may be considered inferior, or in extreme cases be immediately forced to [[{{Gendercide}} death, expulsion]] or usage as a SexSlave. This may create problems in that most of the time, this leaves said society with no obvious method of reproducing (barring the aforementioned sex-slave example). There's a very good chance that this issue will be brought up in-story.

This is a common portrayal of Amazon societies, dating back to the original Amazons of Greek mythology. The Greeks used these stories to [[ScareEmStraight "demonstrate"]] why women should StayInTheKitchen and not be allowed any power at all. This is oddly an easy construction regardless of whether the women in question are murderous or desperate, as in either case, the women are ''still'' centering their lives around men instead of trying to think of something else to do with their time. Some stories TakeAThirdOption and explore how a culture is affected without the influence of men by giving the characters living therein other motivations.

If there are no men at all, then this becomes a OneGenderRace. This is almost always also an example of a {{Matriarchy}} of some sort. For when the cast is improbably female with or without an explanation in the setting, see ImprobablyFemaleCast. Contrast NoWomansLand. See also PersecutionFlip.

If done by a female writer, has a chance of being an AuthorTract of how women are better off without men. This genre is known as "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lesbian_utopia lesbian utopia]]", as it appeals to a group of people without any significant attraction or attachment to men.

* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' serial ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS25E2TheHappinessPatrol The Happiness Patrol]]'' gives this trope a nod when two male guards complain to each other about the female guards getting better assignments and weaponry. (All the positions of authority in their society are held by women, too.)
