Exaggerated: Central Committee Directorate of Ubiquitousanti is a decayingBig Brother Is Watching regime where the society is already in a world where war is constant, the population is only barely sustained by food and any non-governmental infrastructure is missing. In addition, no one has a free will and are mind-controlled to do exactly what they are ordered to, and the slightest deviation of thought will lead to Room 101. No Sex Allowed, and every inhabitant must love the Dictator absolutely, has to go through daily torture sequence and is expendable.
Downplayed: Some people are fighting the problems that are plaguing Ubiquitousanti, with a modicum of successes. Even the CCD has (admittedly few) decent people in it who try to minimize the damage caused by the government. There exists an underground network that strives to keep the people informed.
Dystopia is established to defeat a greater evil or bring order to an overly chaos-infested society and is somehow just a little bit better than what it replaced.

Central Committee Directorate of Ubiquitousanti is so powerful that nothing can ever challenge it. The author shows that if nothing can challenge it, there isn't any Conflict and no real plot can happen.
The CCDU is so omnipresent and totalitarian that it becomes expensive and difficult to maintain, while the lack of free will between the inhabitants halts progress and causes everything to decay, with the infrastructure waiting to fail from a single natural disaster and natural human desire to resist anything that is against their well-being. Also, the Powers That Be are becoming The Starscreams to each other. It risks being toppled due to corruption, infighting and lack of funds.
Someone then makes a series about Central Committee Directorate of Ubiquitousanti which is between Slice of Life genre and Ubiquitousanti fighting against natural disasters.
The Powers That Be are aware of the risks and thus know that they're better off together than fighting amongst themselves. They fight against natural disasters and use various underhanded methods such as drugs, and Bread and Circuses to maintain control over the masses.
Played For Drama: Ubiquitousanti as a setting for Cyber Punk.
