  • Reyesland Brigitte, Iqbal, Jade, Maggie, Uyanga
    • Major theme of society is that everyone is genetically engineered to perform a specific function in society.
    • Genes that cause disease, mental instabilities, and criminal tendencies will be removed.
    • Everyone has a label on their wrist so everyone knows who everyone is and what their function is.
  • Government
    • Leaders are chosen by genetic selection.
    • A parliament chooses what they value in a leader and designs a baby to have these values.
  • Economics
    • No international relations
    • No goods, money, or people can leave or enter this society.
    • Socialist
    • Alcohol and Marijuana are allowed only in special, heavily controlled bars. There are no other drugs available because there is no trade or visiting with other nations.
  • Family
    • At puberty, an IUD is inserted into every woman to prevent unwanted pregnancy and population growth.
    • To have a baby, one must request permission from the government and have the IUD removed after their request is approved.
    • The government is responsible for genetic engineering children but families can request jobs. These requests may not be filled.
    • Only two children are allowed by the government to control population size.
    • Nuclear family unit remains the norm. Divorce is allowed but you may not have kids with a new spouse unless both partners didn’t have kids with their previous spouse.
    • Gay marriage is okay and the same laws apply to their babies as to everyone else’s.
  • Culture
    • There is still an entertainment industry. Movies, music, literature, and visual arts are still made.
    • To be a professional entertainer, one must go through rigorous loyalty training.
    • Prostitution is legal because women can’t be impregnated accidentally and disease will be eradicated.
  • Social
    • No social class because each person has a purpose and are necessary for the society to function. People recognize each other’s value.
  • Morality
    • Religion is replaced by belief in scientific values.
    • The Golden Rule is highly respected.
  • Education
    • The purpose of school is to train children for their future jobs.
    • This creates a very efficient and talented pool of workers.
  • Science
    • Pure science is gone because everyone learns only practical knowledge.
    • Science exists to create technology and help improve lives of people.
