Video description
I know, I know, it sounds really weird and niche. Don't worry, it's actually a very widespread thing! Today we explore the "Planet Of Hats" problem - a fictional society where the culture is defined as simply as "everyone wears a funny hat" (but substitute "wears a funny hat" for "is a warrior", "has fourteen wives", "loves nature", etc). Very common in fantasy and sci-fi, mostly because they're a lot easier to write than an original and realistically complicated fictional culture. But as a consequence, they're also a lot more boring and don't give you nearly as many story hooks or character ideas.

Do you have a favorite well-developed fictional society? Drop it in a comment!
