By monitoring and recording people's actions and economic activities, it'd prevent crimes before they happened and guide citizens towards the best way of living.

The Panopticon was a proposed replacement system for the Sibyl System to monitor the economic and traffic activities of the citizens in Japan. The system mirrors almost that of the Sibyl System, monitoring the citizens and enforcing its rule across Japan in an attempt to prevent crime. Established to replace the Sibyl System, the Panopticon system was met with both controversy and its deployment to monitor traffic activities failed, thus the reign of the Sibyl System remains.


The Panopticon was a design first thought out by Jeremy Bentham, in which the Panopticon, a design for an institutional facility, was meant to control the most amount of inmates with the least amount of guards. The design of the Panopticon was designed circular with a guard tower in the middle, thus allowing monitoring to be both effective and efficient. The design was effective in its purpose as inmates would never know whether or not they are being monitored, thus from this ambiguity, the inmates would always behave as if they are being monitored.
