Thearchy of Shemonel

Thearchy of Shemonel

The Thearchy of Shemonel is a theocratic government covering 164 sectors with about 40 million worlds. Its capital is Shemonlech, home of the Grand Cathedral of Shemonel. The Pontifex and Holy Council of High Priests are both religious and political leaders, and Archbishops and Bishops rule over sectors and planets as well as the Church. The precepts of the Eight-Faced Faith are also the (highly restrictive) law of the region. Individual behavior is tightly monitored in both public and private, and anyone suspected of not keeping the faith is questioned by the Moral Police. The Thearchy is especially aggressive in persecuting any hint of heresy. The Thearchy has the most converts among Humans, Naga, Niddelfs, and Myrmidons. The Thearchy is always in conflict with the Magocracy, since they consider non-Divine Magic (or even Divine magic not from their Deity) an affront to Shemonel, and the Technocracy, since they hate the idea of Aibots (which are banned in the Thearchy) and other thinking machines. Their relations with the Federation, the Union, the Commune, and even the Council are also strained because of the constant missionaries the Thearchy sends into their territory.
