Everything in Seahaven represents the perfect small town or suburban American experience. This is not based on any kind of reality rather than an ideal that exists in the mythos of American culture. Seahaven represents the American dream where a perfect middle class is attainable. The streets are clean, the people are friendly, there is little crime and everyone lives in a vacuum of artificial contentment.
