Also could be called Pirate Punk, though the setting often will not even have so much as a single pirate in it. Life in a [[SingleBiomePlanet mostly watery world]] (or a mostly watery part of the world where the rest isn't of much matter) with distant islands connected by trade routes, ships sailing back and forth, and of course, many {{Pirate}}s and buccaneers, whether they're wielding cutlasses on sailing ships or the aquatic equivalent of HumongousMecha. May contain OrganicTechnology, and have a large focus on what happens under the waves as well as over. Fantastic elements in keeping with old sailors' superstitions (mermaids, [[GhostShip abandoned derelicts]] [[FlyingDutchman that often aren't so abandoned after all]], [[KrakenAndLeviathan giant sea monsters]]) can fit, too.

Life cultural and political sensibilities of the AgeOfSail, WoodenShipsAndIronMen. Many works of modern fantasy or speculative fiction are set in a [[SingleBiomePlanet mostly watery world]] (or a mostly watery part of the world where the rest isn't of much matter) with distant islands connected by trade routes, ships sailing back and forth, and mighty colonial nations vying for rulership of course, the seas. Also often called Pirate Punk, as the setting naturally lends itself (but is by no means obliged) to have many {{Pirate}}s and buccaneers, whether they're wielding cutlasses on sailing ships or the aquatic equivalent of HumongousMecha.

Fantastic elements in keeping with based on old sailors' superstitions (mermaids, [[GhostShip abandoned derelicts]] [[FlyingDutchman that often aren't so abandoned after all]], [[KrakenAndLeviathan giant sea monsters]]) can fit, too. also make a frequent appearance.

* Bizarrely this trope plays out on TabletopGame/RocketAge's ''Mars'' of all places, which has seas of silt, pirates, whalers and merchants hopping from island to island.

Corrected spelling of link...
* The planet Spatterjay in Neal Asher's ''The Skinner'' is mostly ocean with a relative handful of islands and atolls and it's technology, except for [[TheFederation the Polity's]] outpost is mostly from the AgeOfSail except for the occasional example of SchizoTech obtained from the Polity, mostly weaponry and radios although in this case the "sails" are [[StarfishAliens alive and sentient]]. The closest thing to a government are the Old Captains who, thanks to an omnipresent virus are [[ReallySevenHumdredYearsOld really old]]
