It's like a basic credit score but it incorporates "trustworthiness, social interactions" and other bullshit things based on info received from various companies. In 2020 it will be mandatory.
Say something negative about the government? Your score goes down. Play video games too much? Your score goes down. Missed a payment because you were in the hospital? Your score goes down. If your score is too low, you are denied access to transportation, potential job opportunities, etc. Fucking scary.
