Dystopia. The novel traces a well off family through the collapse of the U.S. economy, followed by extreme poverty, and the establishment of an authoritarian government that confiscated all property (they became sharecroppers). The novel ends in Nevada, which has managed to secede from the U.S. and has considerable personal freedom but also has much violent crime and other serious problems.
