There is a terrorist threat against the country, but nobody knows who the terrorist is or what he (or she) looks like – therefore accessing the nationwide Sinister Surveillance is the fastest way to find out who’s responsible.
Inverted: As part of a revolutionary new political system, the people of Madethisupolis are able to watch what the government officials are doing at any given time by broadcasting meetings directly to their television screens. In other words You Watch Big Brother.
Subverted: The government of Madethisupolis is only really capable of watching the main streets and government buildings with their surveillance system...
Double-Subverted: ...or at least that's the lie they tell to cover up the existence of microscopic surveillance drones able to be deployed anywhere.
Parodied: Madethisupolis' citizens' refrigerators have cameras in them.
Zig Zagged: Sometimes the entire surveillance system is down for months at a time for maintanence – therefore nobody is watching sometimes. Not that anyone can tell, though…
Averted: Despite possessing other Dystopia-like qualities, the people are not being watched by the government on a day-to-day basis.
Government officials eventually become bored of watching mundane activities 24/7 – and never have enough time to actually have a life themselves. This in addition to the lack of any anti-government activity for ten whole years causes “Big Brother” to declare the surveillance system not only unnecessary, but also detrimental to the well-being of the citizens he actually cares for, and it is uninstalled.
