Yat Madit is an artificial intelligence system that allows 8000 local council chairpersons to join the country as if they were elders sitting together around a tree. See quote for details on how the system operates.
In the short story we meet the young woman Amaro, who works in a digital store. The story explores her relationship with her father, who has been in prison for murders committed in his political past. Now he wants to stand for LC, local council chairperson. Amaro has her own artificial intelligence assistant/ avatar named Adak, who helps her but also transmits information (it seems) to Yat Madit.
