the lack of explicit definitions when it comes to emotion doesn't strike me as a very interesting problem. different behaviors will become associated with different brain states depending on environmental conditioning.
I would found a libertarian city state similar to singapore or monaco.
If libertarianism is right, these types of city states should eventually out-compete nations as they are much more efficient.

after that was up and running I'd retire to a harem that made the playboy mansion look like a church service.
