Annotation

Dystopia. The growth of democracy undermined Great Britain, and it lost a war with Russia. The best British institutions did not get established in the colonies. In particular the failure to establish equivalents of the House of Lords, which could limit the move to extreme democracy, was important. The establishment of manhood suffrage and payment to legislators helped bring down the system. Comparisons are made to the successful aristocratic system of Russia. Tasmania is now a flourishing colony of Russia.
