    Shipping Theocracy, also known as Shippingism, is an authoritarian, culturally left, and economically variable ideology. The ideology is self-explanatory, it referring to a synthesis of modern internet shipping culture and Theocratism. It believes in shipping a ship as much as possible, to the point where it can be comparable to a religion.

    History

    The concept of shipping could be dated back to the 1970s, 20 years before the term "ship" or "shipping" was even coined. The first one that was popular was a ship between Kirk and Spock from Star Trek, though it was simply called K/S at the time. The first heterosexual ship, however, would originate in the 1990s, between Fox Mulder and Dana Scully from the show X-Files. Then, it sort of escalated from there after the coining of the term "shippers" as fandoms started creating art and stories to represent that they ship two characters together. However, more recently, shipping culture would start to gain a more negative reputation due to the the occurance of ship policing, along with "shipping wars" that occur where two ships would contradict each other and would lead to many arguments and controversy from both sides.

    Beliefs

    Shipping Theocracy itself believes that shipping should be enforced through a state and carried out by the people. Examples of such practices include mandate of creating fanart and fanfiction of the ship, pledging your loyalty to ship it, wage war with other shipping theocracies if their ship contradicts with the mandated ship, etc. It is economically undefined, but has been identified as culturally left as some shipping theocracies mandate homosexual and polyamory ships.

    Variants

    Same-Sex Ships

    Known by their terms "slash" for males, and "femslash" for females. In the anime/manga communities, however, they are known as "yuri" and "yaoi". These ships are self-explanatory, them being ships of two people of the same sex.

    Polyamorous Ships

    Also known as a "love triangle", these ships are usually introduced as a plot device to create conflict in a story. The easy way the shippers got around this was to literally clump the characters into one single ship.

    Interspecies Ships

    Normally found in fandoms of media with various animals in them (for example, Zootopia). These ships are between two non-human entities, but as you would expect, there is much controversy if the ship is between a human and a non-human.

    Age Difference Ships

    Self-explanatory.

    Love-Hate Ships

    One of the more popular types of ships. It is a ship between two characters that canonically hate each other, often interpreting it as a literal love-hate relationship.

    Personality

    Shipping Theocracy is portrayed as your average internet shipper, defending their favorite ship with their life. They also like to go around and play matchmaking with the other ideologyballs (they usually hate it).
