Well Ordered Society Act ("WOSA")
In the name of societal productivity,
labor efficiency, and the mitigation of societal chaos, the combined wisdom of governments worldwide hereby adopt the "Well Ordered Society Act".

1.2 Any and all instruments capable of producing rhythmic music shall henceforth be destroyed. This includes, but is not limited to all percussion, wind, stringed and electronic instruments capable of producing rhythmic sounds.
1.3 Any attempt to convert or modify sanctioned non-rhythm instruments into devices capable of creating rhythmic music shall be considered a violation of this Act.
1.4 Existing collections of rhythmic instruments must be immediately turned over to the Chaos Control Bureau for destruction.
1.5 The design, creation, production, distribution, or performance of new rhythmic instruments is henceforth designated an offense of the highest order.
Article 2: Licensing of Approved Non-Rhythm Music
2.1 The Chaos Control Bureau (CCB) shall serve as the primary global regulatory body for all music, granting licenses for the production, distribution, performance, and consumption of approved non-rhythm music.

3.2 Violations of the Well Ordered Society Act will result in severe penalties, including but not limited to fines, imprisonment, compulsory labor, and/or death to be determined by the severity of the offense and at the sole discretion of the CCB.
3.3 Individuals, groups, or organizations found to be operating in contravention of the Well Ordered Society Act shall be deemed as Chaos Agents and will be subject to immediate prosecution and penalization by the CCB.

By virtue of our combined desire to preserve conditions best suited to economic success, we governments of the world enact this Well Ordered Society Act, in the hopes of fostering a world characterized by order, productivity, and efficiency. Any art, recreation, or forms of amusement that detract from this ideal shall be considered disruptive and dealt with accordingly. Our society shall be one of productive work, of progress, and of order.
