The first settlers arrived in San Veritas around 1000 B.C., Shifting weather patterns and sea currents then isolated the island for several centuries. Dutch settlers first arrived on San Veritas in 1729 naming the Island chain “Kans” or “Opportunity,” exposing the isolated population to previously unencountered pathogens. By the time a second expedition reached the island in 1737, the native population had died, leaving what explorers had described as ghostly overgrown stone cities. The “Haunted Islands” were avoided by most conventional sailors and often used as a refuge by pirates in the region.
In 1889 Oil and Mineral deposits were discovered under the island and it was quickly settled by industrial interests which developed the archipelago’s infrastructure to aid in moving material from the interior to the coasts.
In 1941 the island was claimed by the Empire of Japan, however, only a token force was landed to manage its administration. The Island chain never saw any combat and the garrison force surrendered to the Australian navy after the end of the war.
Word of the nation’s beauty spread after the war and the chain quickly attracted Australian, South African, and American immigrants. Within 20 years, San Veritas was considered an English-speaking, modernized rising star in the Central South Pacific.
In 1975, Charismatic Religious leader Ezekiel Shepperd relocated his “Adam’s Truth” ministry from Idaho USA to Kans after confrontations with US Law Enforcement. Shepperd Established a religious retreat and compound that eventually occupied the entirety of the Stenkool island. Over the next 20 years, Shepperd’s flock grew and Shepperd gained influence in the Kans government.
In 1997, The “New Adam” party, whose leadership was made up of Shepperd’s followers, gained prominence in the Parliament of Kans. They immediately began rolling back women’s rights culminating in the ultimate disenfranchisement of women by 2003. Despite embargos and objections from the United Nations, the “New Adam” Movement advanced a radical Masculinist agenda across the nation. Each rollback of women’s rights was accompanied by a new outcry on the world stage that would eventually fade away and be forgotten.
In 2014, Ezekiel Shepperd died. His funeral celebration was used to announce that Eric Varkins, Shepperd’s hand-picked successor would be the New Adam Party leader. Eric then gave a fiery speech denouncing the corrupt feminist West and announcing his 5 Points.
Kans would be renamed to “San Veritas” To symbolize the holy truth of Masculine Dominance over all creation in as the legacy of Adam
San Veritas had no female citizens. Per the “Mandate of Adam” Females were not persons and thus the property of men. They belonged to their Fathers until the age of 18 and 3 months, after which they could be sold or retained.
Females with no declared male owners had seven days to pay for government licensure. Unlicensed women would be collected for sale.
Unowned women were considered “Free use” and were not permitted to deny a man’s carnal attention.
Feminism was declared heretical and subversive. Men convicted of feminism would be castrated and sentenced to hard labor.
Eric Varkins was to be dictator of San Veritas for life.
Following the 2014 transition, San Veritas experienced a brief civil war as “True Kans and Feminists led a gurellia campaign against the new government. Resistance was decisively crushed within a year. Male resistance captives were publicly castrated and sentanced to hard labor. By law, female resisters were denied human slave status. They were degraded and often surgically modified to fill animal-like roles. All this was televised, squelching any spirit of rebellion saves isolated pockets of resistance on the farther western islands.
Today, San Veritas is publicly considered an outcast on the world stage, though several nations do purchase resources from the small nation. Human trafficking is a frequent topic of concern, From 2014 to the present, the disappearance of women in the region has jumped 500% with some groups speculating that San Veritas imports captive women from all over the world.
It is rumored that many of the world’s Billionaires and Oligarchs maintain households that include slave harems on the Islands of San Veritas.

Ezekiel Shepperd founded the “Adam's Truth Church” in Northern California in the late 1960s based on the idea that Adam alone was given biblical dominion over the Earth. According to Shepperd, mankind fell from grace when Eve ate the fruit of knowledge and gained free will. Free will caused a rift between Man and woman that has never been healed and thus humanity remains banished from paradise. Only through the elimination of female freedom can paradise be regained.
In the turbulent times, Ezekiel gained a following of a few hundred families and individuals. Members of the Church would often go into venues popular with younger Americans to recruit focusing on those who had “hit bottom.” A surprising number of young women, perhaps as rebellion against the sexual revolution, joined the church, pledging obedience and subservience to men as the true heirs to the world.
In 1971, The “Adam’s Truth Church” moved to “New Eden” A commune in Western Idaho to further isolate from the corruption of rising feminisim.
In 1975, the FBI began to investigate Shepperd and his followers related to the disappearance of a number of young women in the Pacific NorthWest. Shepperd had been prepared for this and the entire Church with most of it’s followers fled to a compound in the nation of Kans. The FBI was able to apprehend a few members before they could escape who eventually confessed that at Ezekiel Shepperd’s direction, members of the church had kidnapped and enslaved at least 40 young women in “New Eden.” The government of Kans was not cooperative with the US Government and none of these women were ever recovered.
The Church’s new home on the island nation of Kans was a fertile recruiting ground for new membership. Settled and built by WWII Veterans, industrialists, and blue collar workers, Kans population was rich in Masculinist energy. Even those who did not convert to the church found that they agreed with it message of masculine dominance. The “New Adam party” was formed
New Adam Party
At its core the New Adam Party is the political wing of the “Adam’s Truth Church” however it accepts any member that believes in the ultimate dominance of men over the world and that women are not entitled to the choice or free will.
To this dismay of many within Kans government and outside observers, the New Adam Party rapidly gained political power among rural and working class male voters. The Party formed coalitions with other conservative movements in Parlament giving it a seat at the table to influence future decisions.
The party did briefly ally with the more liberal wing to advocate for universal mail in voting. This however was out of self interest. With universal mail in ballots, domineering patriarchs were able to multiply their voice by filling out the ballots of the wives, mothers, and daughters as well. The following election saw the New Adam Party as the controlling party of the victorious Conservative coalition in 1997.
The party worked quickly to consolidate power, erecting new barriers to voting for women and in more liberal urban centers while also restricting expressions of speech. Despite internal and international outcry, the party continued to gain power each year while closing off avenues of opposition.
In 2004, the Nation of Kans held a referendum on women’s suffrage. This was the last election where women on Kans were allowed to vote as Universal Female Disenfranchisement won in what many claim was a rigged election. Mass protests devolved into riots and were put down violently. Thousands of protestors, mostly women were charged with rebellion and sentenced to labor. For men, this usualy meant mine or farm work. For women, this was an assignment to a state licensed brothel.
By 2005 enslavement became the standard sentence for women convicted of a crime. Laws were constantly changed to criminalize more and more women as the market for female slaves only grew.
In 2014, The “New Adam Party” claimed absolute control of the nation which it renamed San Veritas. “Eve’s Return,” a policy of Universal Female Enslavement became the law of the land.
