What is Dystopian Fiction?

Utopian: a perfect society, an ideal world

Dystopian: almost exact opposite

Dystopian novels are often based on a society that is extremely oppressive and frightening, which is often the completely reversed of the goals in an utopian society. Equal rights and humanity are often overlooked in dystopian societies and are at times considered a nightmare to those living in the community.

These societies are often broken down or in an oppressed state. Societies greatest fears create a grim and hopeless environment in many instances of dystopian stories.
