Utopia Z Essay, Research Paper
Utopia Z: Recreation
Besides being able to live comfortable and easily, the people also have a lot of recreation to do, with in Utopia Z. All of the recreation, is located in the recreation dome, which is located between the Construction Plant, and the Hospital Dome.
The Recreation Dome is filled with different activities, such as artificial ski-mountains, a swimming pool, and amusement park, an ice arena, a playground, a football field/track, a bungee jumping station, and a large field for miscellaneous activities.
One of the biggest attractions in this dome, is the artificial ski-mountains. These mountains are constructed with sturdy steel frames, and with artificial snow. This mountain is equipped with chairlifts, and three different ski-runs designed for different skill levels.
The dome also has an extra large swimming pool, equipped with many slides. This pool is designed to fit in as many as 1,000 people. The swimming pool can also simulate tidal waves. And aside of that, it has a whirlpool, and a steam room.
For the kids? amusement, we have put in a mini-amusement park, which contains a couple of rollercoaster rides, a Ferris wheel, and many other rides, designed for children and adults of all ages. Along with that, the amusement park, also has many carnival games.
Beside all of that, we have the football field, which also includes a track for running. The football field includes a computerized refereeing system, which will run the game, and also keep track of the score.
Another big addition to the Recreation Dome is the built-in Ice Arena. This Ice Arena also has a computerized refereeing system. But besides that, the Ice Arena is pretty close to the modern ones we have today, along with a couple of little improvements.
The dome also has another little addition, the playground, which is specially designed for the younger kids. This large playground is pretty close to the ones we have today. This playground maintains and cleans itself, which makes the playground sanitary for the kids.
One of the biggest, and most unusual attractions to the dome, is the 400 feet bungee jump site, designed for the older more-daring people. This site is restricted to citizens 19 or younger, so this is only intended for adults. This site is equipped with a vacuum capsule, which transports the users to the top of the tower.
Along with all those activities, we have also included a gigantic playing field for whatever activities the citizens can think of. Whether it is Baseball, Frisbee, walking their pets, whatever, this field will serve their needs.
Although the dome has many attractions already, it still has extra space for future additions.
Utopia Z: Agriculture
Since Utopia Z, is a fully self-maintained unit, it is able to supply and grow it?s own food. This is all done in the Agriculture Dome, which is located at the center, shown on the diagram.
This dome is especially bigger than all the other domes. Actually, it is precisely 10 times larger than it?s surrounding domes. A giant growth light is also installed into the dome to provide the crops and animals with artificial sunlight. This light actually provides a better, more concentrated light than the sun can provide on Earth.
The dome is separated into 3 sections, designed to supply Utopia Z with vegetables and livestock of all kinds.
Two of the sections are used to grow plants and vegetables. They are purposely separated into sections, in case, one of them are malfunctioning. These two sections are equipped with strong durable beams that encircles the area. These beams supply water to all the plants and crops evenly. Besides the watering system, the ground of the dome is also equipped with a fertilizing system. This system, evenly and regularly, inserts fertilizing material to the soil, keeping it full of nutrition for the plants.
The third dome is provided for the livestock of Utopia Z. This section contains a very complex shelter for the animals, and a large grazing field for the animals. The shelter provided for the animals, is a very complex system designed to take care of the livestock without the aid a human being. This shelter supplies the animals regularly with clean food and water. It also cleans the mess and odors and animals make, keeping the dome sanitized for the other animals and plants. This system also aids the animals in injures, keeping them healthy. All without the aid of a single human being. Past that, the shelter is equipped with a large grazing field, which is guarded by a heavy-duty steel fence, which automatically opens and closes for the animals at the set time. The grazing field, allows the animals to get the exercise and freedom, that they get on Earth. There is also a watering system and a fertilizing system installed for the field.
Many of the foods are distributed to citizens of Utopia Z. But a fraction of it, is stored in the Storage Dome, located between the Hospital Dome and the Court and Government Dome. This is done, in case, and major failure occurs in the Agriculture Dome.
This well equipped system, will supply the citizens with almost all the different foods, that can be found on Earth.
Utopia Z: Conclusion
In conclusion, Utopia Z is a very efficient, self-maintained unit, and can supply the citizens with all neccessary living needs.
Although Utopia Z, supplies all the citizens with sufficient amounts of food, it also supplies water to them. This is done at the “core” of the unit, near the energy generator plant (shown on diagram). Utopia Z collects water not by direct source, but by gathering the neccessary minerals needed to develop water from space. Because water is made, it is very clean, so there will not be a need for filters. The water is then run through a very complex system, which distributes equal amounts of water to the people. A fraction of it, will be stored into a water tank, for emergencies.
Utopia Z, not only supplies the citizens with materials need to maintain life, but it also gives them many other recreations to do. We have supplied them with a Recreation Dome. Utopia Z, also has a Court and Government Dome which settles problems for the citizens.
The citizens on Utopia Z, have to go through a very straight-forward, but effective system using “stars” as ranking.
So in conclusion, Utopia Z can almost give every to the citizens, that they could get on Earth. We can garantee that the citizens will enjoy and nice relaxing, no stress, life on this unit.
Utopia Z : Living Arrangements
The citiznes of Utopia Z live in a very clean, and healthy environment. They live in a very simple, but effective way.
The homes in Utopia Z are divided into two different sections. One is a average, with normal area and the other is for four stars and greater. The four stars and five live neer the bottom while the three stars and less live up higher. Even though this is a non biest colony people that have not followed the rules and or break a law their food is given at an amount just so that they can live and no more. Food is given to everyone and if more is wanted you must go and buy it with their own credits, which can also be used to purches
other items around for plessure.
Credits can be exchanged for many free time activities, including the Recreation dome, hospital, extra food and set-up gift stores. Credits are also spent on a annual monthly fee to support our station. Credits can be earned in two ways buy doing a job and every two weeks credits are put in their savings to buy extra goods and activities that are wanted.
Water runs free through the water system so there is water available twenty-four hours a day. Water is stored in one area incase of a virus getting in the water supply. Waste products are shot into space where a machine collects them and turns them into fresh nice smelling farming soil.
Utopia Z, has many domes insuring that life will be safe, some domes include, Recreation dome, Government dome, Storage dome, Construction plant, a prision and an Ariculture dome.
People get from their homes to these places by space suction that sucks capsules from one end to the other in approxamitly thirty second. Twenty people can fit in a capsule and there are twelve normal capsules and two emergency tubes.
Families are only aloud to have two children and one animal. These rules are set so that the population doesn?t grow over 10,000.
Utopia Z, has both animal and plant products. This isures a healthy and balanced diet, and also gives choice in what one chooses to eat.
Utopia Z: Education
In Utopia Z schooling is very different ways, but also similare in others. School starts at age four which is called adgustment schooling, basicly to get the children away from play and use to the idea of school. Five year olds go into Learners, then on to grade one through to grade twelve and then on to a trade school.
The schooling takes place at home. The teacher is a holographic image produced by a screen with s hard-drive attached. A (S.C.D.) or super compaced disk, is incerted and at a spacifice time comes on and teaches. This teacher is programed to teach the way the student best lerns. This goes on through trade school, which is also manditory.
Learning setions are three hours long with a ten minute brake in between. Students have to spend three hours a week on studing and homework, this starts in grade one. The study time is not manditory as of grade sevon, if the person gets a (B) average, but continues if grades are less. Study time is timed by a clock that is used to punch in and out. There is also a test that goes every month to see how the progress of the students are going.
Dropouts are concidered fools and are not aloud anything special. They are rated as a one star and are not give a monthly fee and are pushed back into the school. If the student tries it again they will not be pushed back but will live with no honor untill they go back and complete the training.
Utopia Z: Law
Utopia Z is a very stricked yet peaceful space station. If a crime is made there are strong thuro investigations making sure nothing is left out. Everyone that was neer the spot were the crime took place is asked questions and put under a lie detector and nothing is taken for granted. If people that were neer the crime couldn?t help then eventually everyone one the station on the station will be investigated. There is also camras so the criminal doesn?t have that good of a chance.
The rules or laws are basiclly the same as in Canada and probably the whole World. The punshments are totaly different in most cases. Some examples of crimes and punishments.
Murder – Death
Murder, (self defence) – Nothing
Steeling (first time, small thing) – One month in prison
Steeling (first time, big thing) – One hand chopped off
Steeling (twice small) – One hand chopped off
Steeling (twice big) – Death
Steeling (three times) – Death
Drugs/Weapons,(one time) – Hand chopped off
Drugs/Weapons, (twice) – Death
B&E – Prision-death
Rape – Wipped then death
If you get sent to death, you die without your last meal and then you get shot into space. The death sentances and all other sentances go for all ages from four- till age of death.
If you do a crime and are put in jail or any other punishment then you become a one star and can?t even start gaining higher stars for ten years and can never get a higher star then three stars. This will also make the people think twice before making a crime.
Utopia Z: Introduction
This is the year 1997, we (Canadian developers inc.) have developed a self supporting, self contained space-station. The space-station is rotating earth at a rate of .5/day. We have named the station; Utopia Z.
We have selected 10,000 lucky individuals randomly from Earth. Approximately 2-4 people from each sex were selected from each Country.
Utopia Z is equipped fully for all circumstances, including meteroids showers, alien attacks (for those who believe), etc..
As far as energy resources, Utopia Z uses the only energy resource which can be obtained from space, Solar Energy. When the station passes by the sun, the energy is stored in panels, then transferred to the energy generator plant.
We have developed a “rating system”, which we like to call the “star system”, each citizen is rated from 1-5, 1 being the lowest, and 5 being the highest. For example, a government official would be rated at 5, while a criminal would be rated at 1.
Utopia Z?s currency, is similar to Earth?s “credit card” system. We use a card which records the amount of money spent on an iten, in its memory. This process is fully explained later in our report.
Transportation is very different from Earth?s. We use tubes which launch the citizens in capsuls to their destination, safely.
Utopia Z is self supporting; in the idea that we raise and grow all our own food products. The food is grown in domes on the higher part of the station. The food is then sent to markets, where it is sold to the citizens.
We also have a huge selection of recreational things, including; three ski hills, football field, Olympic size swimming pool, ice arena, childrens playroom, amusement park, and a bungee-jumping tower.
We hope that you take the time to fully read our report on our newly developed space-station.
“It?s one small step for man, one large leap for man kind.”
Utopia Z: Government
Utopia Z?s government consists of the following:
The government officals wear uniforms, with sewed on stars on their chestm the stars signify how highly rated the official is in the civilization. Ordinary citizens are rated on the same basis, but do not need to wear uniforms. Criminals or ex-criminals are rated at 1 star.
Only the government officials have the right to input their ideas on the civilization to the President, who then relays the input to the King/Queen.
The government officials are elected in a civilized manner by the citizens, once every six years. If an official dies, or becomes seriously ill, it is up to the next highest rated official to chose a new official to take the missing official?s position.
If a government official is found guilty of any crime, he is automatically removed from government and downgraded to 1 star.
Utopia Z: Population
Utopia Z has a very consistent population. To this date, we have a population of 9,998. Utopia Z?s population was originally chosen by wither one or two people from each sex being randomly from each, the privledged few, then had to take a thorough medical exam, to make sure of perfect medical condition.
Once a male and female have married, and decide to start a family, they may have a maximum of two children, to keep down the population in the station. Once a female has given birth to two children, Once a female has given birth to two children, it is mandatory for her to use birth-control.
From the ages of 6-18, it is mandatory for that portion of the population to go through some kind of education. If education is refused, the child will be down graded to a 1 start citizen until the age of 19.
Medi-Care is supplied freely to those who are in need of it, no matter of their economic situation. There is a limit of $6,000 of medical care to one individual, annually.
University?s/College?s are set up in such a matter, so that only a limited amount of people are able to take a certain course in a certain field. This is to make sure there aren?t 1000 shoe repairmen, for example.
Utopia Z: The Economy
Utopia Z?s economy is a growing interest. Utopia Z is not in deby by any means.
Ordinary citizens (2 stars), earn a living as any person on Earth would. The jobs relate around the station, business?s offer products and services which people on the station are in need of. Employers pay there employee?s by way of upgrading there “card”. A computer is given to the employer from a government official, which is used to upgrade the employee?s “card”. The way the “card system” works is; when a peron purchases an item/service, the person who runs the business scans the buyer?s card through a computer, imprinting the amount spent into the card?s memory. At the end of each month, it is mandatory for every citizen to bring there cards to a government agency, and pay off there debts.
Jobs related to the space station (ie. Litter picking), which are not claimed by a 2 star citizen, are assigned to a 1 star citizen by a government official.
Private property can be purchased through a long and slow process by filing a report to a government agency, stating what you would like the property for, for how long, etc.. Private property may be used for building homes for citizens with 3 stars or higher.
