>central kingdom is a comfy utopia
>people live happy and carefree lives, most people are kind and friendly, cooking is very good and wholesome
>immediately outside its borders is an abyssal hell, filled with pure, irredeemably evil monsters, with most of them mindless
>a holy magic barrier protects the kingdom
>adventurers journey outside of the barrier in order to gather rare materials and to ensure that the nearby monsters aren't amassing too much power
How do you feel about this classic setup, but without the customary twist that always seems to go along with it (the central kingdom is actually exploiting/oppressing its people, the holy barrier requires terrible sacrifices, the demons are actually not all evil and are being oppressed, the demons are somehow exploiting the kingdom, there are oppressed people living outside the barrier enslaved by the demons, the kingdom is just a big trap and everyone inside will eventually get sacrificed, etc.)?
Can a happy kingdom in a world of darkness provide enough drama and excitement without it being twisted into some awkward allegory or subverted in a fashion that makes defending the kingdom somehow ignoble?
