Paradisiacal Glory: Our Future Lives in the Mormon Millennium

When Joseph Smith wrote the 10th Article of Faith in 1842, what did our Mormon ancestors imagine the future of the faith to look like? Mormonism, born from Millennialism, has its own unique take on the great and dreadful day, but has less to say about the particulars of the 1000-year personal reign of Jesus Christ. What would life look like for the average person born 600 years into the Millennium? How would The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints perfectly govern the inhabitants of the renewed earthly paradise as a promised theocracy? Would you want to live there?
