The Agreement was the basis. Introduced and spread through media, it laid out the contract that upheld the Society, outlining the rights and duties of each citizen and the state that enveloped them, protecting them from any manner of harm from others.
The main right and duty of every citizen was to consume- to uphold the loop of capital that flowed from them to the commercial entities and then back to them through taxes. This system had been introduced in recognition of the fact that, although most basic needs had long since been satisfied, it now fell to every individual to express their individuality by indulging it as much as possible. To this end, a key of goods associated with every permissable type was created and frequently updated, describing the correct way of accessorizing to signal your adherence to a certain worldview. Depending on your monthly investment, your credit for the next month was adjusted. The more you spend, the more you get back (minus interest)- that way, the circle of consumption was upheld.
The main duty of the states was to envelop their citizens in safety, equality and opportunity. This manifested in a number of ways, most of them unnoticeably benevolent. The signs on the road, that rotated the terms and wisdoms of the week, keeping them ever-present in all eyes. The hospitals, free of charge for all, free education and connectivity- free as well. The state maintained the basic pipes that kept the citizens happy.
The text of the Agreement was very short:
The State's responsibility is the maintenance of the welfare and security of its citizens, by any means necessary.
The citizens responsibility is to acknowledge and accept that this is so, and to act accordingly at all times.
