If you've been to Saudi Arabia, you can see that the answer to the first question is "to an extreme extent". The importance of the second question then becomes clear, because we don't want a civilized society like Saudi Arabia's.
Good post. Your question about how far to go is the age old question.

FWIW, I don't call Saudi Arabia civilized. It's a mysogynistic totalitarianistic society.
Bad decisions make good stories.
