In By the Waters of Babylon, the futuristic society is ruled by religion and a belief in many gods (people who are dead). The people worship nature, healers have replaced men of science, and superstition abounds. It is a spiritual place more than anything else, and its rules are adhered to because of the fear their superstitions has instilled on the population.
