Catacomb Years by Michael Bishop

Description: In the year 2004, after the collapse of the USA, the Domed City of Atlanta forms an Urban Nucleus that is part of the Urban Federation of city-states which is trying to preserve civilization. But the government, once relatively benign, is sliding into dictatorship. Bizarre cults and sects develop and decay as people respond to the new realities around them. The Septigamokians, an experiment in group living and marriage among the aged, are disbanded by the dictator. The Glissadors, young people employed as messengers who meet for dance and exercise, are exterminated. Religious fervor becomes intense, and even alien visitors from the stars convert to "Ortho-urban" Christianity.
