2 pages | 510 words

"Utopia" is an ideal society as envisioned by Saint Thomas More in his book "Utopia". The name "utopia" was coined by More from Greek roots meaning "good place" and "not place". In this work, More described the life of an fictional island off the coast of South America. The island was populated by people who live in a perfectly ordered and harmonious society. Although the people of Utopia have many things in common with people of other societies, they also have some unique features.
