* FreeLoveFuture ''and'' NoSexAllowed: Yes, "every number belongs to every other number," but everyone is issued so many sex tickets based on their hormone levels, and sex without a ticket is outlawed. The worst of 2 opposite {{dystopian edict}}s!

Eight months after reading ''We'', Creator/GeorgeOrwell sat down and started writing ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'' as a direct cultural translation of the story. Both Orwell and Creator/KurtVonnegut (who based ''PlayerPiano'' on ''We'') have accused AldousHuxley of stealing the plot of ''We'' for ''Literature/BraveNewWorld'', although Huxley always denied it. Creator/AynRand's ''{{Anthem}}'' is uncannily similar to ''We''. Last but not least, ''We'' heavily influenced ''Film/{{Equilibrium}}'' in all its campy glory, so much that it could very well be considered an over-the-top ''We: TheMovie''.

* {{Dystopia}}: One of the earliest known examples (although Creator/JackLondon's lesser-known ''Literature/TheIronHeel'' predates it by over a decade). It is widely considered to be one of three TropeCodifiers of the genre, alongside ''Literature/BraveNewWorld'' and ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'', both of which it predated, and the latter of which is acknowledged [[WordOfGod by its own author]] to be a direct cultural translation of this work for Western audiences. (Many literary scholars believe ''We'' to have influenced ''Brave New World'' as well).

One of the earliest known {{Dystopia}} novels, written by Yevgeny Zamyatin in 1921 and predating both ''Literature/BraveNewWorld'' (1932) and ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'' (1949), which it directly inspired. It's also notable for being the first work banned by [[MediaWatchdog Goskomizdat]], not published in the Soviet Union until 1988, and some parts of the description of the One State read as scaringly similar to Stalinism -- eight years before it began to take shape. (The Soviets especially didn't like the book's implication that theirs was not the ''final'', destined-for-success revolution.)

Zamyatin himself was, in turn, influenced primarily by HGWells, whose works he had previously edited in Russian.
