Margaret Atwood's 1985 Handmaid's Tale, which I am now watching in the movie version, describes a fundamentalist Christian dystopia in North America built primarily on the oppression of women. Liberal paranoia about the evil Christian Right, which is always about to take over the country and put homos in camps, etc.

However, it actually describes an Islamic theocracy. Oops.
