* AuthorTract: The book is essentially a long, long fictional essay about why Wells' particular brand of socialism was the only way to a perfect society.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment:
** The headquarters of the OneWorldOrder and subsequent utopia are based in ''Basra, Iraq.'' Let that sink in for a moment...
** The outbreak of the novel's version of WorldWarTwo. It involves a Polish Jew, a [[THoseWackyNazis Nazi]], takes place in Danzig - and is PlayedForLaughs.[[note]]To elaborate: The Jew tries to adjust his ill-fitting dental plate, and the Nazi somehow assumes that he is making rude grimaces and gestures at him.[[/note]]
* MarySuetopia: Wells is not subtle about the perfection of the Modern State.
