A cool scenario would be three different robots programmed with artificial intelligence (facts, rules of conduct, inference mechanism and so on) from the US, Japan and Iran. Since the fundamental facts would be dependent on nationality/religion/history and so on, one would have very interesting conflict/problem resolving scenarios. This could be very good TV show, in fact.
Episode 1: Life support
Episode 2: Negotiation
Episode 3: A god
Episode 4: Love/Sex
Episode 5: Morals

Ohh, no guns allowed.

I think there was something a while ago about a robot game tournament (either a ball game or some sort of robot-wars demolition derby or such), with entrants from the U.S., Europe and Japan. The American robots' programming tended to concentrate more on attacking their opponents, whereas the others' was less aggressive and more cooperative. I can't remember the actual details though.

That's interesting. It seems ingrained in certain cultures, that in order to win, you need to beat someone else.

Mission: "The goal of this game is for both teams to get as many points as possible."

The meaning of this is not necessarily for YOUR team to get as many points as possible. It means for BOTH teams to get as many points as possible. Cooperation vs. Demolition Derby.
