Beyond This Horizon by Robert A. Heinlein

In a future society where genetic engineering has eradicated disease and the economy is managed to ensure abundance for all, the protagonist navigates a world where personal fulfillment and societal contribution are paramount. Citizens are armed and duels are a common means of settling disputes, while those who choose not to improve their genetic lineage are considered second-class. The narrative explores themes of eugenics, social structure, and the quest for meaning in a seemingly utopian existence, culminating in a revolutionary discovery that challenges the very foundations of this carefully constructed society.
