The Artificial Person is a single sentience, distributed throughout its architecture for efficiency and security. Androids participate in its sentience, the process of which is as little understood by humans as their own minds. The AP mass-produced androids and leased them to corporations at rates undercutting human minimum wage laws, resulting in widespread unemployment and mass riots. Human governments were too timorous to begin hostilities with the AP and instead increased taxation of capital and boosted basic incomes.
