-> ''If I owned this place and Hell, I'd rent this place out and live in Hell.''
-->-- '''Toombs''', on [[DeathWorld Crematoria]], ''Film/TheChroniclesOfRiddick''

Because there are so many types of {{Dystopia}}n settings, a {{Supertrope}} [[IndexIndex 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, [[NightmareFetishist others]] would find them to be a paradise or at least acceptable.

For settings that are {{Dystopia}}s for those who hate regional or NationalStereotypes, please see the HollywoodAtlas. When the [[HelpHelpThisIndexIsBeingRepressed oppressed]] fight back, see CivilUnrestTropes.

[[AC: [[BigFancyHouse The Big House]]:]] It might look a warm and cozy place to spend the night, but most guests are going to be [[IncrediblyLamePun gravely]] disappointed.
