MAMA WORLD is a fictional world about a utopian society where everyone can obtain their basic, emotional and rational needs.
The aim of MAMA WORLD is to educate people about how we can reach a utopian society and show them how meaningful life will still be in a world where everyone can easily obtain their needs.

Corruption is one of the biggest problems that afflict most forms of government. Corruption won’t be a problem for a meritocratic government because the system has inbuilt mechanisms to deter corruption and undo decisions made because of corruption.
In order to understand why corruption will not be a problem in a meritocratic government let us discuss why it’s hard for corruption to happen in a meritocratic government, what type of corruption might happen in a meritocratic government and methods to undo the decisions made in a meritocratic government because of corruption.
Reasons why its hard for corruption to happen in a meritocratic government
There are three main reasons why it’s hard for corruption to happen in a meritocratic government. The three reasons are:
Number of people
A meritocratic government is divided into the local meritocratic government and the federal meritocratic government.
The local meritocratic government consists of 1000s of people hence each institution of the local meritocratic government can consist of 100s of people while the federal meritocratic government consists of millions of people and hence each institution of the federal meritocratic government consists of more of more than 100,000 people.
All these people need to vote for a proposed bill to pass and hence bribing all of them is extremely expensive unless the institution or sub institution doesn’t have a lot of people which can be more present in local meritocratic governments.
All matters of institutions of the federal and local governments are conducted online and votes are casted anonymously hence actually knowing the members of the local or federal government to bribe is very hard since most members choose to remain anonymous.
Centralization of social services
All people in a meritocratic society obtain their food from the food hub, clothes from the clothes hub, live in MAMA WORLD etc.
Hence most people will be against ruining the social services that they themselves use hence will be less reluctant to accept bribes.
Although these 3 reasons make corruption less likely, it can still creep in other forms such as a local community having few people, the rich person paying bribes to experienced members of the community trusted by all to propose the bill for them etc.
Let us now look at the types of corruption that might happen.
What type of corruption might happen in a meritocratic government
Most local meritocratic governments will experience good corruption by new companies that are experimenting with new automations or new innovations.
This will be important so that new ideas can be tested out in small scale and people who have been denied funding in institutions can have a chance to test out their ideas and systems.
Most local governments will also experience bad corruption where companies hinder the development of a community through lobbying the local government to buy raw materials from them, to use their systems, to fund their research etc.
So both good corruption and bad corruption will be happening in the local meritocratic governments.
Let us now discuss how the members of institutions of the local meritocratic governments can fight decisions made because of bad corruption.
Methods to undo decisions made because of corruption
There are two methods that members of institutions of a local meritocratic government can fight bad corruption which are:
Propose a bill
The first method any member of an institution of a local meritocratic government can fight corruption is to propose a bill that changes the decision made because of corruption.
The bill will then be voted for and if the person was able to expose the corruption enough then the bill might pass but if the people who accepted the bribes are powerful in the institution then the bill might not pass.
If this is the case, the member of the institution of the local meritocratic government can use the second method to fight corruption which is:
Report to the institution of the federal government
The second method members of an institution of the local meritocratic government can use to fight bad corruption is to report the company in question to the respective sub institution of the federal meritocratic government.
Each federal meritocratic government will have an anti corruption sub institution that helps to ban companies that are hindering the development of the institutions of the local meritocratic government.
The companies can propose a counter bill in the sub institution to unban them but they can’t corrupt their way to a win since the sub institutions consist of millions of members who are anonymous and in different countries.
Hence once the case for corruption reaches the anti corruption sub institutions of the institutions of the federal meritocratic government the decisions made because of bad corruption can be changed since the companies that bribed local members are banned.
As we saw throughout the article, the meritocratic government is a dialectical government system that constantly improves and grows.
