London A.F. 632

Brave New World is set in a futuristic, dystopian world. The majority of the story takes place in a 'utopian' London where the air is clean and sterile, the people are never unhappy or lack anything they desire, and the state has totalitarian control over every person born.

Central London is a ring of buildings and flats surrounded by parkland used for sport and play. Outer London offers playing courts for the different caste workers: "a double row of Escalator-Fives Courts lined the main road from Notting Hill to Willesden. In the Ealing stadium a Delta gymnastic display and community sing was in progress." There are also huge community buildings that keep the state intact.

There is no wild, uncultivated countryside, only fields, and no abandoned or "for sale" buildings; every building belongs to the state and is used to its full capacity. This London is perfect, with every inch used for either work or play.
