Businesses can only be started, expanded, or closed if gov't approves. Gov't has right to confiscate all property and businesses at anytime for "the greater good". All major transactions need to be approved by the state. State's computer decide certain people are "unnecessary" and orders a culling. Advanced knowledge is kept secret from general populace because it's "redundant" for them to know except for a special group.
