Canada as a troubled religious eutopia in 2020. Canadian universities had been destroyed by student revolts in the 1990s and replaced with centers of conversation. These led to a revival of religion and a reduction in productivity. The government gives out drugs to get people re-connected to reality, and the church becomes an inquisitor.
