I'm in the middle of Psycho-Pass Season 1.

What states besides Japan have a (or the?) Sibyl System? There's this part in Episode 13 where 'world' rather than 'Japan' is used. Does the Sibyl System cover the whole world? Does it or do the dominators apply to anyone anywhere even in Antartica or International Waters? Are the police in third world countries using dominators?

I highly doubt Japan is the only place that has a/the Sibyl System because I don't see why the UN would just allow Japan if it disagreed or would not follow Japan if it agreed. It's like The Walking Dead: I highly doubt it's only the US that's infected. If so, the UN likely would've intervened already (like in world war z iirc).

If any of these cannot be answered without spoilers, please use >! and indicate degree of spoilers (or whatever is the site policy for questions like this).

Obviously, this had to be done with (major) spoiler(s). The spoiler below only to answer your question.

(spoiler for movie)

Apparently japan is in the only one that operated Sibyl System (or any system alike). This fact shown in the movie.

On side note (this spoiler contains major plot spoiler - proceed with at your own risk),

(spoiler for s2 but not movie)

The movie also shown the fact that the entire world actually get a dive in governance - anarchy everywhere. Then, only Sibyl System preserve peace in Japan. Not to mention how Sibyl System managed to replace the entire Japan Diet Member and convinced to measure the Psycho-Pass of the society - as the consequence of Akane's Request in Season 2.

I hope you'll finish Psycho-Pass and catch up to Season 2 (including the Movie of course).

    i think you could wait until you watch the movie, although it isn't fool-proof. as the nature of psycho-pass believing in some kind of oracle machine is still hard for most people, not to mention their secretive nature on how they actually operates - just like how we can't trust internet for privacy and such. not to mention the main point of psycho-pass is the conflict on accepting the oracle machine.

    just to clarify, is it really the case that the viewers are not supposed to know if or what places outside Japan also use a/the Sibyl i think it was left that way to open a hole for new series/movies. did any anime actually tell everything and you start end up bored watching. i don't think whoever behind psycho-pass (not always Urbouchi) will do thing like that.

    ...PP may have benefited from doing something a little bit like what OUAT or HTGAWM does. Well anyway, hope that answers your question. Thanks

    well, recent anime industry had different approach than their early years. story telling isn't the main part sometimes. but it's rather irrelevant to discuss this :) (or review an anime) here.
