* Speaking of Orwell, the titular ''Literature/AnimalFarm'' is considered a true animal paradise free from man's corruption. Everyone believes HumansAreTheRealMonsters and DumbIsGood. Unfortunately the pigs emulate humans and take over. The lesson is WorkingClassPeopleAreMorons.

* ''Film/DemolitionMan''. Everything in San Angeles with bad connotations is illegal. It's inhabited by PerfectPacifistPeople so no one knows how to deal with violence. Everyone dresses conservatively because the ozone layer is depleted. Those who don't follow this way of life live in the sewers. The scene of the naked woman accidentally calling Spartan shows that not everyone in the surface world likes it.

* In Creator/PoulAnderson's "A World Called Maanerek", the Hegemony is out to force all mankind in unity, to hold loyalty only to the Cadre. They choose their mates, who are allowed contact seldom, and all children are raised in creches. Your life position is choosen when you are bred for it, and entails burning out parts of your mind if you are lowly enough. When ships sent out to find more humans to bring them into the fold, they will freely, when problems mount too high, take over part of a planet and let the men run wild with ColdBloodedTorture and rape to release their aggressions.

* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoII'': One disc jockey complains his car's been stole five times. This month alone.

Dystopia is Ancient Greek for "bad place". The trick to creating a dystopia is to take a sociopolitical issue and turn it UpToEleven in a way that it creates a CrapsackWorld. Better yet, do it with several issues, or perhaps all of them.

* ''VideoGame/IronStorm'': UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne has been dragging on for a horrifying 50 years and has become a ForeverWar. Everything is saturated with industrial grimness and in general decay. The global economy has become dominated by greedy and ignorant {{MegaCorp}}s and completely dependent on [[WarForFunAndProfit keeping the war running]]. As if that wasn't bad enough, humans in general have become militaristic {{Crazy Survivalist}}s. There's an oppressive new Eurasian empire, which is ruled by a completely insane quasi-religous zealot, who claims to be the new Genghis Khan. And if you think the supposed good guy countries of the setting are any better, think again: they're militaristic jingoists and crumbling democracies masquerading as brave saviours of civilization. Seriously, it's as if someone did a SpiritualAdaptation shooter game adaptation of ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour''...

* ''Film/DoubleDragon'' is set in a post major earthquake LA. It is by crime and the police don't go out at night. Good thing all this is ''PlayedForComedy''.
