The world?

A new Dark Age, the Kali Yuga. No more middle class, civil liberties all but curtailed in every way except by name, permanent warfare overseas, and grinding poverty for most of the human race. Mass surveillance with CCTV on every street corner, and a heavily censored internet. Your phone and Alexa will flag you for wrongthink, if you express verboten opinions aloud. Less freedom of movement, stagflation, little meaningful technological advancement. Neo-feudalism, without any trace of noblesse oblige. Overall, standards of living will decline, and mass media will promote this for environmental reasons.

Anarcho-Tyranny was a term that was coined some time ago: Anarchy for the common man, without any realistic expectation of a fair hearing from the corrupt legal system, and rule by Diktat from progressively more unaccountable and distant elites.

In the urban centers of the future, imagine the favelas of Brazil, patrolled by heavily armed paramilitary security forces, terrorized by well-organized criminal elements, and governed by oligarchs safely ensconced in their fortified dachas, who dine on marbled steak and are serviced by sex slaves while the commoners outside the gates subsist on bug protein smoothies and numb themselves with woke entertainment, cheap drugs and pornography whose depravity we can't yet imagine. The transhuman meme will be fully endorsed by the establishment, and social credit systems will be de rigueur, with individuals who are effectively "unpersoned" unable to buy and sell goods.

I would hope that the rural areas might be better off.

Or, we might get lucky with a NEO, the Yellowstone Caldera, or a Gamma ray burst, and we are returned to the comparative freedom of the stone age, following some grim arithmetic.
