More > has grown dispirited at a newspaper called The Liberal and resolves to take a holiday. Quitting wife and family, he finds his plans disrupted when his and two other automobiles are accidentally transported with their passengers into "another world," which the "Earthlings" call Utopia.

Utopia lacks any world government and functions as a successfully realised anarchy. Their education is their government. Sectarian religion, like politics, has died away, and advanced scientific research flourishes. (Wikipedia)< Less
