The great thing about books like this, from the author's POV, is that the naif wandering through the scenery asks questions like "Oh, do explain to me the benefits of a subsidised rail system" and not "How is it, given that the prevailing winds blow from west to east, that airborne pollution from the rest of the US is a bad enough problem that it gets mentioned several times?" and the naif can be relied on to admire the handwoven clothes everyone wears without wondering who makes it all. Although since they've re-introduced child labour and everyone only works a 20 hour week, they may have the spare man-years needed.
