Annotation

Dystopia and a flawed utopia set in 2096. The human race has degenerated mentally and lost the science and technology of the past. There is a small island established in 1896 that has no government but has laws handed down by custom that everyone obeys. It is presented as dull, and the people are without emotion. Work only from 20-40. Technologically advanced.
