A MarySuetopia, CrapsackWorld or PlanetOfHats oftentimes has a single, not very realistic law (with other laws existing to shore up that law) which, often contrary to common sense ''defines'' that society. The penalty for breaking the Dystopian Edict is usually draconian in nature -- death or imprisonment are the most common, but [[FateWorseThanDeath worse punishments exist]], particularly in speculative fiction.
