Aristopia: A Romance-History of the New World is a utopian novel by Castello Holford, considered the first novel-length alternate history in English. In Aristopia we follow Ralph Morton, an early settler in Virginia, who discovers a golden reef. He uses his wealth to build a planned society, based on the Utopia of Sir Thomas More, with innovations and adaptations of his own. In Aristopia, all the land is government owned, and only leased to businesses and private citizens. Large-scale trade is also monopolized by the state, and inherited wealth is limited.
