“The beauty of is that it lets us vicariously experience future worlds – but we still have the power to change our own.”

– Ally Condie

describes a world or society in which people lead wretched, dehumanised, fearful lives. It is often characterised by fear or distress, tyrannical governments, environmental disaster, or other characteristics associated with a cataclysmic decline in society. The term “” comes from the Ancient Greek words “dys” (bad) and “topos” (place).

Dystopian societies often feature strict government control, with people having very little or no privacy. The government may set harsh laws and even censor the public. In some cases, there is no government at all, leading to anarchy and a struggle for survival. Social systems in dystopian stories often break down, with strict governments enforcing one religion for all people or even outlawing religion altogether. Families may be turned against each other, and advanced technology may be used to control the public or make life easier for a select few.
