Something not governed by humans. One day our AI will be that advanced, I imagine.

Some kind of communist dictatorship, so I can get the money where it belongs, rather than where it ends up going. I also want power, so I can fix what was wrong with a lot of things I see.

Very militaristic, similar to Singapore's government.

Seriously, their country is clean, organized, orderly, has little crime, and people don't act like total nutjobs. I would give up a bit of my freedom for that.

So Democratic Socialism I'm cool with that tends to work really well.

Jobs will soon be a thing of the past, unemployment will skyrocket as automation first takes over production, transportation, and service jobs, then replace white-collar work as AI gets more refined.

Anything that bases itself on existing economic models is bound to fail because the standard "Work to buy" paradigm will break down, unless artificially supported.

The best outcome then would be to embrace automation, make education free, and assure that everyone has what they need to live fulfilled lives. Everything else that is good would come out of that. Poverty and lack of education are powerful aspects of most social problems.

It doesn't mean people shouldn't work, but we definitely could produce enough for everyone with much less work. Besides, take away the concept of a job and we'll just direct our creative and productive impulses elsewhere. Basically all it means is if you don't want to work, circumstance wouldn't hold you by the throat. You could choose to find fulfillment elsewhere.

EDIT: As for actual politics I see it as being democratic, and very responsive to the people - with all this free time, we could devote much more time to social cohesion and the political process.

That's just not true or sustainable. Education is free for the most part, you're basically paying to verify things you already know. Besides general education and what not. And what you don't know, you can get for free through the right channels...and I'm not talking about Warez. Online education is being embraced in a big way. Some big name colleges are offering classes for free. Also, while I can see you want nothing but the best for our country, and humanity in general. Economics is a waiting game...there will be ups and downs...but to say that everyone will loose their job to automation is hogwash. A more likely scenario is that the way work is done will change, and current employees will adapt by changing their skill set. So indeed, embracing automation is key. But I doubt it will lead to economy's T2.
