Dystopia

A dystopia (from Ancient Greek δυσ- and τόπος alternatively cacotopia or simply anti-utopia) is a fictional community or society that is undesirable or frightening. It is often treated as an antonym of utopia, a term that was coined by Sir Thomas More and figures as the title of his best known work, published in 1516, which created a blueprint for an ideal society with minimal crime, violence and poverty.
