Fat Robots?

A confession.

I feel that I was somewhat elitist in FatLand: A Novel by mostly presenting events and daily occurrences from the viewpoint(s) of the leaders. In FatLand (2): The Early Days, I sought to remedy that somewhat. Archivists are not necessarily leaders. But in FatLand 3: To Live Fat and Free, I  want to include people who are of all different walks of life, including historians, but also including people who work in different areas. However - this will be 2046-2047. Most of what we think of as manual labor will not exist then; it will have been computerized or robotized.

So the question is:  Will there be fat robots in FatLand (3)?
