Maybe we should add in the write-up a distinction between "horizontal" and "vertical" separations. Namely, whether one (or more) caste is "below" the others (one "above" is quite different).

With this in mind, trolls from Homestuck and untouchables from Real Life are "vertical", while most Hive Caste Systems or the tau from Warhammer 40,000 are "horizontal".

Um...should there even be Real Life examples of a Fantastic Caste System? "Fantastic" in this context is "of or pertaining to fantasy," not So Cool It's Awesome....

How is this related to Divided States of America? "Extrapolates on a real-world situation" covers about every trope ever.

Yeah, no idea of how this could be related.
