Annotation

Eutopia mostly based on technology. Weather controlled by individuals; flora and fauna of all the world wherever they are wanted; manned flight but individuals also have wings. The area from Egypt to China, including Australasia, is in ruins because people had abandoned all areas of “ignorance, vice and oppression” (11). St. Louis is the capitol of the U. S., which stretches from Panama to the North Pole
