The Other World Kingdom (frequently abbreviated OWK) was a large, commercial BDSM and femdom facility, resort, and micronation, which opened in 1996 using the buildings and grounds of a 16th century chateau located in Černá, Žďár nad Sázavou District, Czech Republic.[3] Although not recognised by any other country, it maintained its own currency, passports, police force, courts, state flag and state hymn.[2]

History

OWK was officially founded on June 1, 1996[2] and was open to visitors by the spring of 1997, after two years of construction costing £2 million.[3]

The Other World Kingdom provided a D/s environment of a size and consistency not available at any other facility in the world.[4]

The land and buildings were offered for sale in 2008 with an asking price of eight million euros.[5] The sale particulars suggested the property was suitable for use as a hotel, restaurant, residence, or old people's home.[6]

Government

The OWK is a matriarchy, where women rule. The state also has strong BDSM and Female dominance themes. The state's goal "is to get as many male creatures under the unlimited rule of Superior Women on as much territory as possible."[2]

The OWK is ruled by Her Royal Majesty Queen Patricia I, an absolute monarch.[4] She is able to amend laws and other legal issues. Her other roles include "Sublime Supreme Administrator" ("supervision over all activities within the Area and the Office of the Supreme Administrator"), "Sublime Administrator of the Treasury" (Financial issues) and of the Queen's court and the Queen's guard.[2][7]

Below the Queen is a series of different classes. The first is the "Sublime Ladies" or "Ladies citizens," who form the Kingdom's nobility. To become a citizen, a woman must fulfill certain criteria. These are:

  • The woman must have reached the age of consent.
  • The ownership of at least one male slave.
  • Obeying the principles and laws of the OWK.
  • Sending an application for citizenship.
  • Spending at least five nights in the Area of Queen's Palace.[2][8]

The next class are the Queen's subjects. These are men who follow OWK law, obey the Queen and pay her taxes, but have some rights such as, "freedom to travel, own property and deal with such property, have children, change employment, enterprise and state his opinion." The lowest class is the "Slave" class. This is a male class who have forfeited all rights, are property of the Queen or Sublime Ladies and are considered to be "on the level of a normal farm animal".[2]

The site was 3 hectares (7.4 acres) in area, with several buildings, and a 250m oval track, small lake and grassed lawns. The main building was the Queen's Palace, which was the residence of the monarch, and contained a banqueting hall, library, throne room, torture chamber, schoolroom, gym, and extensive basement prison, the cells of which could be hired. Additional visitor accommodation was provided in the Long House, including the Countess Elizabeth Báthory Chambers complete with two torture chambers. This building also contained a swimming pool, pub, restaurant, and the Wanda Nightclub. The outdoor facilities were supplemented by a sawdust-covered indoor riding hall and stables.[4]
