Totalitarian Dystopia's: Totalitarian states are, in most cases, ruled by party bureaucracies backed up by cadres of secret police and armed forces. The citizens are often closely monitored and rebellion is always punished mercilessly.

Cyberpunk Dystopia's: he technological evolution has accelerated, environmental collapse is imminent, the boards of multi-national corporations are the real governments, urbanisation has reached new levels and crime is beyond control. Important, but not necessary essential, concepts in cyberpunk are cybernetics, artificial enhancements of body and mind, and cyberspace, the global computer network and ultimate digital illusion. Cyberpunk stories are often street-wise and violent.

Tech-Noir Dystopia's:a hybrid between high-tech sci-fi and hard-boiled. This is a mainly cinematic genre. tech noir dystopias usually have more psychological and existential depth. The atmosphere is more mesmerising, threatening, gloomy and melancholic than in average cyberpunk and the approach on technology, urbanisation and environment is much more complex. The spectacular contexts in tech noir dystopias are mainly backgrounds for intellectual experiments, in most cases extremely innovative and imaginative.

Crime Dystopia's: Crime dystopias may have different settings. These societies have been infested with grave criminality and the authorities are about to lose control or have already lost it. This criminality may span from street crime to organised crime, more seldom governmental crime such as corruption and abuse of power. The authorities often use drastic and inhumane measures to fight the moral decay, perhaps out of desperation, perhaps out of necessity. The society is often in imminent danger of becoming totalitarian. (A Clockwork Orange)

Leisure Dystopia's:utopias gone wretched or failed paradise-engineering projects. In these societies, all problems have been solved, at least officially, and all citizens are living in wealth and happiness. Unfortunately, this is often achieved by suppressing individuality, art, religion, intellectualism and so on and so forth. Conditioning, consumption, designer-drugs, light entertainment and similar methods are widely used in order to combat existential misery.
