If one wants to write about different worlds in his story, it isnt enough to just change a few things on the surface. Culture has to be different, different political systems usually means differences in economy too. An example from my universe: on the totalitarian planet, most people barely have any property, they depend on the hive to grant their basic needs, and depend on the state for healthcare, free education. I want to give more freedom on another place, the cult run planet, less dependency on redistribution. I wondered about whether certain elements of feudalism could be usable? In middle ages, peasants had to give tenth to landlord, tenth to the church. It gave me the idea, that on that planet, working a factory doesnt mean one get XX dollar per month, but workers got half the income of the factory, state gets tenth, owner gots tenth, the rest is for the infrastructure, business. Similarly, taxation after ones personal income means tenth to state, tenth for health insurance. Do theese ideas make sense?
