Since ancient times, people have created fantasy worlds. Some fantasy worlds exist in religious scripture or mythology. Other imaginary worlds exist because there was a time when ancient authors had to imagine what civilizations laid on the other side of the impassable mountains nearby.
Still more were created exclusively for fiction, where the audience was in on the fact that these places were completely imaginary. These fantastic worlds could be used to play out the dynamic of problems in our world, with fantasy characters standing in for classes, races, or creeds.
Some worlds feel safe, and offer pure escape and an optimistic take on our world. Others are pessimistic, designed to scare us and make us feel better about the world we live in. Others exist to educate us about how some small aspect of the world works, and what we can learn from it so we can make the world we want to live in.
