The Utopia of Goryu

The Goryu society quietly resting in its beautiful country has a utopian structure of governance, economical, educational and justice which are only second to none. Since time in memorial, many writers and philosophers have written articles and even books describing what Utopia entails. One of these written utopias includes Plato’s Republic. According to Plato, a utopia ought to have equality; few laws eliminated poverty with no room for any form of misery. Sir More Thomas while describing an Atlantic Ocean Island in fiction, believe that a utopia can be the most ideal place if ever it existed. Adding to the list of Utopian societies is Goryu which has the most beautiful geography ever seen. This utopia also prides itself at having what can only be described as superb governance, educational justice and educational systems that exist no where else. It can only be termed as a heaven on earth.

            More than New Zealand, this Utopia has an environment second to none in terms of beauty.  Its environment is the most ideal should one seek a new beginning in settlement (Sarggison & Sargent, 34). When you finally get settled in this society, you will be amazed at the amount of beauty that it carries. Ranging from the mountain ranges that are just superb to the unbelievably beautiful sandy beaches, it is an amazing geography. From the ever green surrounding rain forest to the active volcanoes that often majestically erupt without any danger to its inhabitants. Not even a single species of the unique birds like the Kiwi or any other species is harmed in this eruption. The air is so fresh and void of the choking dust and industrial noise that is common in many cities around the world. Kings queens and all other highly regarded people in the world cannot wait to have a chance to visit this society. Although these outside leaders do try to unsuccessfully bribe their way into the society, they cannot manage to stay for more than the pre-laid down maximum number of days that any visitor can stay in this society.
            The societal philosophy surpasses all. It leaders have ruled her very well that during the election period, the turnout surpasses even countries like Mozambique that enjoys wide government support by its people (EISA, 16). Although the fact that there are presidential elections every 5 years. This society operates under the unwritten notion that everything belongs to everyone and no one has more rights to anything than any other person. It is interesting to note that there has never been a case filed for any form of election malpractices against any contenders or against the electoral commission. This is so despite the clear and proper existence of channels to handle any such case. This can therefore just prove that the elections in this society are always free and fair. There is no term limit for the president’s rule and a president can be elected as many times as possible. Interestingly however, there have been presidents who have ruled for one term and these incumbent presidents have ended up loosing their seats to other contenders. Without any objections, these former presidents have always vacated the seat and went their way to perform other duties that they wanted to do now that they were no longer president.
In this utopia with a president as the head of government, there is just and fairness. Not even the president himself is above the law and yet there are no prisons because everyone behaves in a just manner. This Utopia might be compared to Plato’s Republic because it contains just men and women alike who would never do any kind of harm to any other person (Annas, 23). Although the president’s word is considered law and is final, the president has never misused these powers. It is not from the fear of impeachment: because this option is available to the members of parliament but rather it is from his personal character that will never permit him to become corrupt. There are 4 political parties in existence however any person can form another political party if the y so wish to. Any person can also migrate from any political party at any time without any restrictions.
The educational system in this utopia is a classic combination of teaching only what is relevant to the society. Every child has a right to go to any school near him or her and get free education. There are public libraries that are stocked with any kind of literature material one might require. There are universities to offer higher learning to any person that wishes to study and again all these is provided free of charge. People who would like to engage into research are free to do so and ideally, amazing inventions have been realized that simply just marvels other societies. Other scholars are busy inventing new forms of governance that will provide even better governance. All this occurs without the interference of the government but rather the government makes sure that everyone gets whatever they want.
            Although it closely relates to More’s Utopia in terms of private ownership (Sullivan, 6), this Utopia is better in ensuring proper ownership. Every person has a store next to their houses and these stores are normally refilled by the governed every 3 days. Every grown up person in this society has some form of employment not to earn a living but just to keep them occupied so that they do not get bored. The jobs are varied and everyone makes a choice of what job they want to do. If you do not want to work, you are allowed to go out and have fun at any place that you want. There are no thieves as there are no idlers and after all no one receives a salary because there is no use for the money. The people in this society are rich beyond measure but they also have equal amounts of wealth. Not even the president is richer than the genitor since they receive equal satisfactory allowances and everyone loves their job. Although there are bosses and those who work under them just like any economy, there is no division of economic classes in this society.
            Everyone in this society is just by his actions. However with exceptional cases like people who pay a hefty amount just to come and visit this society, there are laid down procedures to handle this. There exist judges whose words are followed keenly. Should anyone accuse someone of causing any thing or doing something that is unjust before the eyes of the judge knowingly, then they are banished from this society for ever. However if hey have committed serious crimes like murder, the judge will pass a sentence that seems appropriate and they will; be deported to their original societies to serve their sentence from there. This is so as there are no prisons in this society or correctional institutions. Everyone is just and no crimes are committed knowingly. Therefore a polite sorry works most of the times since no one wants confrontations.
            There exist various entertainment venues in Goryu. The most interesting form of entrainment in Goryu however is the goryushinng game. This game has been in existence in this society throughout the ages of time and it is still their favorite sport. The immense following that this game receives from outside Goryu and around from men and women of all ages in the world is beyond imagination. Enjoying more following than the NBA in America or even the American football itself, this game has one interesting phenomena, it is highly competitive but there is usually no loser or winner.
            Life in Goryu is what can be termed living big yet so simple. There are no hustles in this society and everyone is so friendly knowing very well that they are all equal and no one is better than the other. Who would not want to live in this society with equal opportunities for all irrespective of your position or the type of work that you do. A society that has beautiful scenery is just with wonderful educational systems. A society that has no class discriminations and interestingly enough the definition of working class, middle class or capitalist citizens does not exist. There are no places that are only the preserve for the rich but rather anyone can go anywhere at any time without any restrictions. A society where you live without any fear of becoming bankrupt since after all, there is no legal tender for exchange. This society is truly a heaven on earth and everyone in it is an angle in their own form.
