Agrarian, somewhat nomadic eutopia, some of which is technically primitive (balloon transport, semaphores for communication) but is socially advanced. A catastrophe caused all metal to become useless; while this made war impossible, there was a widespread famine which produced a dramatic fall in world population. In the future population is controlled. Everyone is wealthy and self-assured. There is no government or belief in a god. Free love and one worldwide language. Initial education is with the mother (fathers are not identified) with no formal education until age forty. The author also wrote a utopian trilogy; see 1950, 1952, and 1954 Capon.
