Transcript of The Perfect Utopian Society

$$ Money $$
*Universal currency between city-states*
Chimerica
By Hannah Bates, Callum Jaffe, Jalisa Orella
We use pretty paper money as currency.
*Stable economy*
We have an enormous supply of natural resources and fossil fuels.
*People earn money from doing their job*
*5-10% of each person's yearly income goes to taxes to help sustain the utopia.
Government
*THE BASICS*
*Our society consists of many independent, but well connected city-states.*
*Codified law system*
*Universal language*
*Equal opportunity for everyone*
Money isn't used for everyone's basic needs; that is paid for by the government. Money is used for anything else you could possibly want.
Family & Daily Life
~Education~
Housing
Families live wherever they want. We have rural, suburban, and urban city states.
Housing varies among people's personal taste. If you want a big house in the city, you can have that. If you would rather live in an apartment in the suburbs, you can have that also!
*There is no homelessness in our utopia. All people are provided basic need s (housing, food, and clothing) by the government.*
Our government is a oligarchy. We elect three presidents to ensure that no one person has too much power. An odd number of presidents also ensures that decisions will always be made.
Presidents make the big, utopian-wide decisions and keep peace between the city states.
Presidents are voted into office.
Each city state sends forward one elected official.
The top three officials with the most votes become presidents.
The presidential ballot is then composed of the elected officials from each city state.
Each city state gets three votes.
All other, smaller decisions are made independently by the varying government types within each city state.

Kids start school at age 5.
Once the students graduate high school, they go to college.
~Jobs~
Life classes are taken in school to teach the children important life skills.
Education in our utopia is free at all levels.
Students take aptitude test to help them find the college best suited for them.
If they don't want to go to this college, they can choose to go directly in to the workforce.
Most people in our utopia are married; however, marriage is a choice.
*Everyone has somebody.*
If you would rather have a pet versus a human companion, that's fine also.
*Choices*
Most couples in our utopia have children.
Children live with their parents until they go to college.
Elderly people in our society may live with family members, live on their own, or live in our enjoyable retirement communities.
*Free Time*
Free time in our utopia is used based on personal preference.
*Fashion*
Our society has no fashion hierarchy!
No "name brands" or labels of any kind.
*Main Jobs*
Doctors
Farmers
Teachers
Jobs are determine by aptitude tests and personal choice.
*Compensation varies by job and productivity.*
Everyone must work at least six hours everyday.
*Equal Opportunity*
If you chose to abuse this, you could be unemployed.
There is no extreme poverty. The government provides for everyone's basic needs.
Questions?
We have great rugby
teams and facilities!
Everyone lives close to a beach!
You get a doughnut! You get a doughnut! Everyone gets a doughnut!
OUR UTOPIA HAS DOUGHNUTS!
Some of our happy residents!
*Presidents change every five years.*
Chimerical- fanciful; fantastic; imaginary; wild; idealistic.)
