Suppose you're an evil guy who's finally done the impossible; conquer the entire Universe! You've made sure everyone who's loyal to you is part of your army and everyone else is slaving away in your mines, factories,etc… Where do you go from there? Is having all the power possible in the entire Universe, or even the Multiverse going to be enough for you? What will you do when there's nothing left to conquer?

Well, I guess that if I really was power hungry enough (and capable) to conquer everything and I'm left with the point where there's nothing left, I'd figure that I'll be at least sufficiently content. I'd spend the rest of the life repairing the damage caused by my hostile takeover and then have fun with micromanaging the world trying to create an utopia of efficiency. If I'm some sort of immortal ruler then I'll probably become bored of it eventually and then start deliberately allowing resistance movements and offshoot factions to emerge so that I can have someone new to battle.
Those were my two cents.

A universe that's completely mine and utterly at my control? That sounds like a nice place to visit.

Billy vs. Tree – The epic struggle of boy versus tree.
Sonic Colores – It looks like it's going to be a good game because I love how the way it makes me grow.

First you get the money then you get the power after that you get the women. So there you have it. If I mastered the Universe I would just chill back and have lots of ladies.

I will tie down my hands.

I will make sure my government gets separated and shrunk and de-centralized. Because I know that I am not God and not perfect. Therefore it makes me prone to corruption and abuse of power.

A few of my decrees before I turn it into a republic:
- taxes dropped to 10%. Enough to maintain a sizable army and police force. No to socialist and big brother police state BS that is responsible for high taxes.

- Any act that has no victim is NOT a crime. That includes not wearing seatbelts and smoking pot.

- Every citizen would have the right to be armed as long as they have no criminal record. Its PERFECTLY LEGAL to have an M-16, AK-47, RPGs, etc and be part of a militia.

- No such thing as “property tax” and “sales tax” and any of those stupid extra taxes. Its only 10% income tax. Period.

- Guaranteed freedom of religion (and free speech) as long as your religion doesnt call for violence.

- Everyone is equal under the eyes of the law. I don't care if you're black, white, brown, yellow, blue, pink, green, or whatever color or gender you are.

- The economy would be a PRODUCING economy and not an economy that is all about spying on your neighbor.

- I might add to this list. lol

I often fantasize about this, here are my ideas;

Install a rigid caste system based on points and law, the points effect their ability to get a job or even live well. Points go up if they help the community or do well, points go down if they commit crimes. If points get low enough they are either outcasted or killed.

Law system would become eye for an eye wit physical crimes. If a pedophile tortured and raped a little girl, he would be brought in and tortured and raped by a guy as well. Punishment for non-physical crimes is point deduction- ensuring they'll get fired and never find another job.

Install TV's/media over all cities. Brainwash with personal propaganda to support the community, do community service, and earn points. Most news is positive to build moral.

Freedom FROM religion. No religious group may demonstrate to the public or impose on others, failure to comply by groups will result in outcaste.

Only a small set number of lawyers per population, ensures health care cost is lower.

NO ‘no kid left behind’ act. If your kid is stupid then he damn well better get his act together.

Food police. All food businesses must uphold a certain regulation of healthy in ALL their foods, such as no addictive corn syrup or ‘x’ amount of sugar. Repeated failure to uphold means establishment is bombed.

———————
I'll be doing a short comic on this too, i think it's got quite a nice moral.

I'd create a law so that the rich and poor each take turns being rich and poor every ten years so everybody learns the stupidity of material goods while still getting the chance to enjoy having them.

But it's impossible to control every human on Earth unless you are the only human being left.

Call that jumped up metal rod a knife?
Watch mine go straight through a kevlar table, and if it dunt do the same to a certain gaixan's skull in my immediate vicinity after, I GET A F*****G REFUND! BUKKO, AH?!

First thing we do is kill all the lawyers.

Make citizenship contingent on serving the state and only a citizen can vote. All citizens would be members of the assembly which would be hooked up by the internet and text messaging.

No money, no banks, no religion and complete education in critical thinking and reason.

A new Enlightenment and life according to the Humanist Manifesto http://www.americanhumanist.org/3/HumandItsAspirations.php http://www.americanhumanist.org/about/manifesto1.html

Of course the title of the thread infers that I am evil and ruthless in which case I would do all these things for the good of mankind whether they liked it or not because anyone who disagreed or resisted would be dealt with very severely. They'd get a stern talking to and an education to cure their ignorance.

If that didn't work the water torture (water boarding is nothing), strappado, humiliation, sleep deprivation etc until they change their mind. Everyone breaks after three days.

Other than that my perfect world would be much like kyupol's; for citizens of course. ;)

What will you do when there's nothing left to conquer?

I'd bore myself to death or end up eating my own, and after that, eating my own flesh. Figuratively or actually. Because evil guys are insatiable, unsatisfiable and unable to stop unless someone stops them. ;)

I'd rule with an Iron Fist, continue to strengthen my dominion, and build an empire that would last unto the end of all things. Fortunately everybody will be living in a Utopian society as a result, and the flourishing human race will support my drive to extend my domain to as many planets as we can reach and colonize.

I mean really, Why stop with Earth?

Eh, I've never had any desire to rule anything. While idealistically I want the world to be a certain way, I'm a selfish bastard with better things to do than worry about managing a vast empire. I'd probably hand over control to a capable committee that I thought would do a proper job of makin' the world a better place. Then I'd hole up in an impenetrable fortress, isolate myself from everyone I know due to extreme paranoia, and enjoy the spoils of my conquest until I met my disasterous and/or debaucherous end.

That part reminded me so much of Starship Troopers. That movie may have been kinda bad but the political world it featured was incredibly interesting to watch.

Well, that in itself is a war. If someone who liked battles conquered everything, this would be their next one, making sure everything was running smoothly.

Yeah, I'd do this too. Sometimes in games like Age of Empires, if it looks like I'm about to win, I pull my soldiers back and build up my walls and such, so the enemy can have time to recover and attack again. Makes it so much more fun.

Evil is subjective.
If I made myself ruler of everything I'd try and make it run well and fairly. Tht would seem evil to some and good to others.

I think I'd hand the power over to my brother. He'd enjoy it more and is much more creative (and devious) than I. Plus, if there was a revolt, I could go to the winning side and not lose my head.

I'm not sure I know how to be evil… or powerful – unless it's anonymous and behind the scenes. The limelight scares me.

Oh, I dunno about all that “making everything perfect” or “running an empire” stuff. I'd probably just sit back with my old generals and a few beers an reminisce about the good ol' days, before when we only ran one country and had less paperwork to do and more of the fun stuff.

Then we'd yell at those damn rebel kids to get off my lawn.

I'd force everyone to make boxes for nothing on a daily basis, everyone's meals would consist of only Tootsie Rolls and tomato juice, while Boy George's “Karma Chameleon” is all that plays on television and radios. Rebels would be tortured with nonstop tickl–make that PINCHING.

Unfortunately, the only way to create a real “Utopia” is to eliminate every other human being other than yourself. More than one human would ruin it as the other might have different ideas of what a “utopia” is…

Ah, but here's the beauty of it. As the evil dictator, YOU can make the distinction of what utopia really is. You can make it illegal to criticize it and anyone who refuses to obey can quietly disappear.

Like in the novel Nineteen-Eighty Four, right? Having to eliminate the opposition that way makes it a Dystopia disguised as a Utopia, and there's a ton of those in fiction…

I don't think a true “Utopia” can exist with more than one person as in order for that to happen, everyone has to agree to the Utopia of their own free will, as opposed to opposing viewpoints being forcibly removed and/or free will being bent using brainwashing and other methods to make everyone see things your way.
