If everyone had their own small planet to live on and care for (like in The Little Prince), what would your planet be like?

I don't know what this "Little Prince" is that you refer to, but I like the question.

The weather would always be comfortable - if it snows you can always go out and play in it, if it's warm you can still run around in the park. The technology would appear quite steampunk, but with usual computerization - everything would keep a certain art in it. There would be an abundance of traveling performers and people who just want to travel, because that kind of fear of strangers would be eliminated on both sides.

A big library would be in every city, where everyone could go and learn things whenever they wanted, and assumptions would be kept at bay until facts were found, allowing people to treat each other better. People would have their given names, but an alternative, self-chosen name would be the usual. There would be zero mainstream fashion, zero income tax and top hats would come into fashion every few years.

Can't think if I'm forgetting anything, but there you go.

Ask me anything
