Eutopia. A brief dialogue including some satire. Part is on a variety of imaginary countries which have generally good laws. A country is described that has specific laws for relations between neighbors, stating that they should not depend on each other financially and otherwise should treat each other kindly and fairly. There are other rules regarding relations between husbands and wives. Another country is described where the rural population led a simple agricultural life. The cities have detailed laws on personal and business relations. The other parts are not utopian. See also 1622 Breton.
