Do you live in a place where the same people control everything generation after generation? Has the population remained unchanged for decades? Have half your people left over the last 80 years? Are new ideas ridiculed and actively crushed, until they can be controlled by the élite which then acts as if it invented them? Do people claim "We have everything here anyone has anywhere," when they don't. Do you live in a backwater? Is home a few big frogs in a little pond where you are crippled and kept as a tadpole? Do your big frogs make claims that are ridiculous? Is your home feudal?
Your society may be incestuous.
