Set 97 years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization, a spaceship housing humanity's lone survivors sends 100 juvenile delinquents back to Earth in hopes of possibly re-populating the planet.

If you take 5 minutes to think about it, the fact they are 2000 is because they couldn't came back. They were 200 at first when the haulocost hit the ground and by an amazing luck they were already on the ark. Not exactly like they had many ways to expend the ship, cause what they had is the only thing they could use until now. AND exactly why they allow one child by family to avoid people they couldn't take care of with provisions and oxygen.
I'm all for reality too, but my thinking is perhaps the ark had to be constructed in a hurry. Besides, there may have been fewer people when they put it all together. Not to mention, it seems like they were in denial about the fact that the ark was dying in the first place. If the leaders had admitted there was a problem earlier, maybe they could've been working on that (if they could find the spare parts, of course).
