This is impossible even in a fictional artificial world. Man is a multi-parameter system and each parameter depends on many factors. Therefore, it is impossible to create even two identical clones. There will always be a normal distribution of parameters. Even the fact that one will be on the left and the other on the right will already have an effect. Therefore, such a situation that everyone has a maximum IQ is equivalent to the fact that the whole world has the same thing at any point in space.

In general, there is no point in this question.

In general, IQ - IQ is a number that somehow roughly estimates a person's ability to observe, draw conclusions and learn. Even if you are kicked in the shin, your IQ will immediately drop sharply for a while. So it's pointless to talk about the maximum.

Mental abilities, like other abilities, can be developed.

And in my opinion, if more people understand their surroundings better, the world will become better.

For example, university campuses are much cleaner, more beautiful, and safer than average, ordinary places, and certainly better than prisons, where people with high IQs do not often go.

But, as one of those who answered correctly noted - excellent intelligence is not automatically equal to a high level of honesty and nobility - these are also levels of development of mental abilities, but they have not yet invented a coefficient for them - psychologists do not understand anything about these abilities ...

Perhaps even worse, because there are many examples in history of how people with high IQs brought their deadly ideas to humanity.

What could be more harmful than a person who has knowledge of the most complex sciences, but does not have a good heart? He will use all his knowledge for evil.

The human brain is capable of making any predictions based on the pattern of previous events. Taki and I will try to give an answer, relying only on anticipation. IQ is a quantitative assessment of the level of intelligence, in other words, the coefficient of intelligence. The minimum IQ level on the Eysenck test is 70 points, which, according to statistics, are achieved by residents of countries such as Nigeria, Guinea, Zimbabwe, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sierra Leone, Ethiopia, Equatorial Guinea (I dare say that they all belong to the same continent - Africa (the western part predominates more than the central and eastern part)). Where the level of dynamics of economic development is comparatively lower than in the countries of Europe, America and Asia. This is followed by an indicator of the average level of IQ, which ranges from 100-120 points. Such results are achieved by residents of countries - the USA, Russia, Great Britain, Sweden, Germany, Austria, China, Japan, Korea ... whose situation is quite normal today. A 3-stage production system is developed here (1- agriculture [pre-industrial society]; 2- industry [industrial society]; 3- intellectual and informational sphere [post-industrial society].) People whose knowledge coefficient is higher than 120 points are less common. rather than the above representatives of their countries. Among them are such famous people as Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates, Terence Tao, Christopher Hirata, and so on. Who made a huge contribution to science, which accelerated the transition from an industrial society to a post-industrial one. And what it is fraught with, it is quite understandable and without unnecessary hackneyed phrases.

Yes, the world would definitely be a better place. The pace and dynamics in the growth of science would increase enormously. Colonization of Mars and wandering in space, would seem to be common things, which are very easy to achieve with the right and rational approach. Robots would most likely replace a good portion of "everything" around us. Let it go. I got a philistine and meager answer, but the boundaries of my consciousness do not give more space for the will of thought.

Everything is the same. The level of development cannot be the same for everyone, there were still those who would have it a little higher, they would become an elite, and then everything is the same as now.
