What is the best (worst?) dystopia?
Edit: Nominations are now closed for this poll.
Even as our current best villain poll heats up, it is time to start taking nominations for Novembers poll.
The world is in ruins. Or maybe it's not in ruins but there's just something a little off. Or maybe it's perfect, but the price is the torturous misery of a single innocent child. In any case it's a dystopia, and it is doing its literary work to hold up a twisted mirror to our own society.
1- As always, I leave the niggling to your best judgement because I'd rather be inclusive. If you feel like Jim Butcher writes dystopia, I'm not going to argue. (Though you might need to "show your work" to get anyone to second your nomination.) If you think Discworld is a dystopia, nominate it. I won't be enforcing any rules about it being future Earth or anything.
2- Since dystopias are a setting, they can be for a single book, a series, or several series.
3- You may nominate two (2) dystopias. Remember that I am a terrifying, power hungry monster who hates free will and all things of kind heart. To encourage reading and reading comprehension I will NOT take any dystopias beyond the second that you suggest. (I will consider a long list to be "seconds" if someone else nominates them as well.)
3- You may (and should) second as many nominations of others as you wish.
4- Please put your nominations here. I will take dystopias nominated as comments to this post on other social media; however, they may not get the seconds you need because no one will see them. (Seriously, Deloris Umbridge got a nomination for our current poll, but no seconds because she was nominated on Facebook instead of here. And then everyone got sad that she wasn't on the polls.)
5- You are nominating WRITTEN DYSTOPIAS, not their movie portrayals. CGI is making the Insurgent movies pretty fun to look at, but if you find the books to be a little contrived, you shouldn't nominate them.
My own nominations will be in comments.
