The history of a planet from its peak to its destruction by aliens as told by the last man. Demeter was a flawed utopia with a world government, a single language, no disease, and with all weapons and weapon delivery systems outlawed. The people lived over 350 years, which required population control. The family had been abolished, couples or singles got an apartment with a garden and aquarium where they produced their own food. But few people ever had jobs, and most people spent their time as spectators at a wide range of games (cards, computer games, and sports).
