There many sub-genres of dystopian fiction depending on themes included, but they communally take present day issues and extrapolate a short time into the future and regularly include sci-fi elements. Authors normally include many realistic elements to anchor the story in the near future. Dystopian fiction often offers a commentary on societal issues.
