Worlds

Gov’s Domain

Gov’s Domain is a circular plot of land made up of 6 radial sectors emanating from a central tower, Bodhi, also known as Sector 1. There are approximately 11 million people living in Gov’s Domain, and the primary religion and government are united in the Church of Gov, which is a bureaucratic theocracy. This religion is built around a massive debt to the four-in-one god Gov, whose heart is the Sun. Observation of alternate religions is punishable by death. Fomenting revolt or questioning Gov’s Law is punishable by the Decimation of your community, or a full Purge if your transgressions are serious enough. Sun Minister de Winton is the head of the Church of Gov during season 1, while Denton Yang is the governor of Sector 3, and the youngest governor in the history of the Domain.
