@ghostdancer I visited Singapore in -82. It was rather boring back then, too. Very clean and safe, of course. Not much "personality".

@inscius Never been but recall that at the time had the geekie image of a technologically oriented state (for the time) mixed with the charm of the melting pot between western and eastern cultures. OTOH remember also the news about their really strict laws and controlling state and being ran like a corporation.

@ghostdancer Technocracy, plus a sort of model for city state (which ofc never manage without normal territories around them. The can't eat concrete...)
