I am in the process of imagining a world in the late 2020s which is divided into two blocs:
an alliance A of countries in which the governments strongly assert the idea that "general intelligence" as measured in "IQ" is inherited (say as the mean of each person's parents' IQs); and
another alliance B in which the governments deny the existence of such a thing as "general intelligence" and therefore the meaningfulness of "IQ", and they abhor the idea that differences in intelligence of any kind are genetically determined.
The A culture tends to be determinist, racist, and while the acceptance of the existence of statistically "unusual" cases is officially recognised, mostly "education" is provided within a rigid neo-feudal caste system. In the B culture, meanwhile, a way is found so that no educational preference is given to anyone on account of who or how clever their parents are, not even as such considerations might be mediated through how rich they are.
Thus there is a "clash of civilisations".
But I am having difficulty thinking of some countries that might be in B. Which countries would people suggest? I am looking for both cultures to develop out of cultures that exist today. Which countries are most B-y?
Ideally I would like to put some English-speaking countries into B, or at least some countries where a lot of English is spoken either as a first or second language. This is because I want there to be a fork in the English language, as the two blocs develop different words, meanings for existing words, and even syntax. So which countries might I consider?
