Dystopia Within Utopia

Write a story in a society that appears to be a utopia on the surface, but underneath, it controls and suppresses its citizens in horrifying ways.

While everything seems picture perfect on the surface- no crime, no poverty, superior technology- the citizens live under constant surveillance, stripped of basic human rights and freedoms. The society decides who they marry, what job they do, even when they die. What’s the experience of living in such a world? What might spark a rebellion? This prompt explores themes of control, deception, and the human spirit’s struggle for freedom.
