* HumanPopsicle: "Deadheading" and Keep-A-Movin' Dan's decision to deadhead until the heat-death of the universe. A different technical implementation of the trope, since the bodies aren't actually on ice, the minds are just sitting in backup to be restored at some future date (as opposed to ASAP). The same issues apply, though. (In particular, would-be deadheaders wonder whether crowded future generations won't just decide to leave them in storage indefinitely.)

* NoFameNoWealthNoService: The reputation economic basically behaves like this if your Whuffie is low enough. Since money has apparently disappeared, personal reputation is the only standard to determine who gets served. (You can get free stuff from the automated systems, but not being able to deal with humans is still a pain in the ass.)

* DrugsAreBad: Averted, since addiction is easily cured and health consequences don't mean much to immortals, there are casual in-passing references to the main character's girlfriend smoking crack.

A novel by CoryDoctorow set in the future of the Bitchun Society, which has abolished conventional money (replaced by Whuffie, a complex reputation-based system), scarcity (cheap renewable energy and nano-assemblers), death ([[BrainUploading brain uploads]] and subsequent [[BodySurf downloads]] to fast-grown clones), and government (entirely ad-hoc structures).
