Comparison to Fahrenheit 451
The fears of Fahrenheit 451's society are people having too much knowledge and becoming powerful. In Chillville, we fear people having too much stress and becoming grumpy and unhappy.
In Fahrenheit 451, the biggest rule is no books. There are also rules against walking and driving too slow, as well as doing anything too strange. Chillville's rules are keeping stress low by limiting how many stressful activities can be required in a certain amount of time.
In both Chillville and Fahrenheit 451, the government holds the power, but in Chillville, the government gets input from the people because that prevents them from making decisions the people don't like, which could cause stress.
Intellectuals in the society portrayed in Fahrenheit 451 are shunned and silenced. In our utopia, intellectuals are encouraged because they might use intellectual activities to relax and reduce stress in their lives.
Address problems: Citizens of Chillville would need to complete certain tasks, but those would have a minimal stress level and more stressful tasks, such as taxes or oral presentations, would be few and far between.
Drawbacks: Some drawbacks to Chillville are that in attempt to reduce stress, fewer things get done. For example, schools would not give as much, if any, homework because homework is stressful, but that means the students do not learn as much because knowledge isn't reinforced at home.
People who want to leave Chillville will be allowed because forcing people to stay in this society will be stressful for those who want to go and those who are making them stay.
Who would think it's a dystopia: Some people thrive off of adrenaline and enjoy stress. They would find this a dystopia because it forces them to be something they're not.
