* NoWomansLand: Alderode doesn't give you a ton of options if you're female; women are meant to be wives and mothers and little else. (Unless they're from the Platinum caste; then they're often 'encouraged' to go into the sex trade.) They're not really expected to have jobs and ''certainly'' not have careers outside their ghers, plus they're not allowed to own property, vote or even use pymary. It says a lot when a woman's best chance for real power and autonomy is to choose to be a Third Option and legally become a man; plenty of women from the Copper caste, who are relatively more liberated thanks to their long lifespans, take this route. The other countries on the continent, particularly the matriarchal Cresce, condemn such misogyny as incredibly backward and barbaric.

** Alderobe has enforced religious equality, but it also has an ironclad caste system based on hair color. People of different classes are segregated and forbidden from marrying each other, and they are expected to take stereotypical careers. (Subverted in that the castes have real physiological differences: the upper caste, the Coppers, has a lifespan of centuries and almost no talent with pyramy. The lower class, the Plats, die before 30 and are the most skilled wrights in the world. Double subverted in that this isn't a natural state of affairs: the castes are reinforced by an artificial khert and the laws against mixed-caste marriage.) It also has ubiquitous sexism, with women being barred from the public sphere and from practicing pymary in all but the rarest circumstances.
