23rd Oct: It's time for the Second TV Tropes Halloween Avatar Contest! Details here.
If I owned this place and Hell, I'd rent this place out and live in Hell.Because there are so many types of Dystopian settings, a Supertrope index was needed. This is intended to cover both those settings where virtually any honest, decent, rational people wouldn't want to live if they had a better choice, and those that while some people REALLY wouldn't want to live here, others would find them to be a paradise or at least acceptable. For settings that are Dystopias for those who hate regional or National Stereotypes, please see the Hollywood Atlas. When the oppressed fight back, see Civil Unrest Tropes.
The Big House: It might look a warm and cozy place to spend the night, but most guests are going to be gravely disappointed.
