Great question - I've curated it on https://theaidigest.org/timeline, would love to add more good questions on these kind of societal effects of AI

"any public body larger than a single city"

So DC doesn't count? Hamburg, Vienna, Moscow, Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore? Does Bremen count because the state consists of two separate cities instead of just one?
