    I'd keep taxes at a minimum. I'd make prisoners work not only for they food, but also to pay the guards that watch them. I'm out of ideas.

    I would not allow prisons or prisoners. I would legalize the most harmless drugs. I would impose a sort of digital government that could steer political discourse on a national level while still having a fine enough level of control to empower local governments. Punishment for nonviolent crimes as a deterrent will become a thing of the past. Individualism and an interest in the common good will flourish. I will also phase out cars as a means for everyday transportation. They will no longer be necessary after I redesign cities as more localized and pedestrian friendly communities with some public transportation for longer journeys. The economy will encourage entrepreneurship, yet will have balances in place to prevent any single individual from becoming too powerful and bumping off the competition. Monopolies will be a thing of the past. Then as the displaced aristocracy seeks to regain power with a series of failed coups and assassination attempts, I high tail it out of there like Solon.

    I'd invent Skynet.

    Or, try my best until I fuck it up and everyone revolts against me. I always thought it'd be pretty cool to marry modern conveniences and ideals with middle-ages style and hometown feel.

    I would watch, learn, implement a few plans, appoint a few great leaders, then go on vacation.

    Smile With the Limitation of Power

    Well, first of all I would point out that power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely. And that this applies to me as well as anyone else. So I would write a Constitution that limits power, including my own.

    But notice I wouldn't abolish power, I would merely limit it.

    As far as I can tell "power" is a very strange thing. It can never be abolished, only deferred to someone else.
