Owen Gregory, “Meccania: The Super-State”


A precursor to Orwell’s 1984


Meccania: The Super-State is a dystopian novel by Owen Gregory, first published in 1918. Most of the book describes the fictional country of “Meccania,” a nation in Central Europe with obvious resemblances to Germany. Meccania is a place where dissenters are sent to mental hospitals and concentration camps. The state maintains a eugenic breeding program, and commands its common citizens when to have children. All letters are censored, and all telephone conversations are monitored. All citizens wear the uniforms of their occupational classes. Among the very complex regulations of the Super-State are those regarding control of worker fatigue: if a given worker’s calculated fatigue level is below average, he must work more hours until he is as tired as his compatriots.


Gregory’s fictional tale of Meccania providing a fascinating look at how totalitarianism can begin and how people let it happen. A very interesting precursor to Orwell’s 1984.


Owen Gregory is the pseudonym of an unidentified English author.
