Utopia is an ideal community or society possessing a perfect socio-politico-legal system. The term has been used to describe both intentional communities that attempt to create an ideal society, and fictional societies portrayed in literature. It has spawned other concepts, most prominently dystopia. Many books that deal with "utopia" are actually putting out a plot or message of a "false utopia".

Yet, at the last minute I thought, he's some mother's son just as Hector was, and aren't we women all sisters? If I killed him, I thought, wouldn't It be like killing family?Wouldn't it be making some other mother grieve? So I didn't kill him, but if I had, I might have saved Hector's child. Dead or damned, that's the choice we make. Either you me ...more ”

[close] The fence. It is the only thing standing between the modern, organized, peaceful City and the untamed Wasteland beyond. It is the only thing keeping the citizens, the humans, safe from them. They are creatures of the night, the supernatural Citizens can only dream exist. And sometimes they get in. That's where the Corps comes in. Specially selected Citizens are trained in the art of killing with one goal in mind: keep Them out and the City safe. A certain commander has other ideas, though. Why should the Corps wait for Them to come in? Why shouldn't the Corps send men to the Wastelands and eradicate the creatures before they get the chance to invade?

[close] There are only 6 towns left in the world now, all others have disappeared mysteriously, along with all of the population over the age of 20, and under the age of 2. The people in these towns have stopped aging, too. Nobody knows what happened to the missing people, or the rest of the world, since they're too busy trying to survive. Everybody lives in one of the 6 towns: January, May, July, October, December, and Utopia. Each of the towns is unique, and has something that helps everyone survive.
