A colony where Virtual Reality is common to the point that most people spend 90% of their time in it, and yet remains intensely interested in the physical world, increasing material resources, performing scientific experiments, and so forth.

They perform most of their work with remotely piloted machines, even going so far as to route the senses of the machine over their own. Uninformed visitors may think they've stumbled upon a machine civilization, if it weren't for the fields of crops.
