Have you ever wanted to be President? Or Prime Minister? Convinced you could do a better job of running the country? Let's face it, you could hardly do a worse job than our current political leaders.
Crime, unemployment, national debt, terrorism, climate change. Have you got the answers to the problems that face western industrialized nations? Here is your chance to find out. Democracy 3 simulates the motivations, loyalties, and desires of everyone in the country. A custom designed neural network is used to model individual voters, each with varying memberships of voting groups, political parties, and pressure groups. Each voter's income is modeled, along with their levels of complacency and cynicism. This is the most sophisticated political strategy game ever created.
Democracy 3: Social Engineering
Democracy 3: Social Engineering is an expansion pack that adds to the variety of policies and dilemmas available in the base game. The expansion is ‘themed’ in that it concentrates on those areas of policy where governments can influence the make-up of the electorate in subtle low-key ways over the long term. For example, subsidies to bicycles will encourage people to exercise more (in the long run decreasing health costs) and will also encourage less people to own cars and be members of the motorists group. Other policies to encourage entrepreneurship amongst young people will eventually lead to more people becoming self employed, and so on…
A total of 26 policies and 8 dilemmas are included in the expansion, including food labelling, car-pooling, Labor Day bank holiday, witness protection schemes, a diplomatic service, armed forces week, free parenting classes, and much more. The social engineering expansion will allow you see the game as less of a simple win/lose challenge and more of a ‘society sandbox’ that gives you the power to change society over the long run whilst keeping everyone voting for you!
Democracy 3: Extremism
Democracy 3: Extremism adds 33 new situations and policies that reflect the more extreme side of politics, all within the framework of a democracy. Fed up with just adjusting taxes and government spending in the conventional sense? Perhaps you think your people need the national anthem sung at the start of every news broadcast? Or maybe what they are crying out for is a ban on divorce, or same-sex relationships? Alternatively you might like to close your countries airports to save the environment, or maybe outright ban private education?
How far to the extremes can you take your country and still maintain the support of the people (and avoid some of them putting a gun to your head). Democracy 3:Extremism, for when fiddling with tax rates simply isn't enough!
Democracy 3: Clones and Drones
What challenges are to come for the politicians of the future? Mass unemployment due to the automation of factories? or will this lead to a leisure society and equality? Will ubiquitous drones lead to better law enforcement and less traffic congestion or to widespread crime and infringement of privacy? Should we give the go-ahead to human cloning? will climate change cause problems for our country? Are we going to run out of rare earth metals? or oil...? The people look to YOU for leadership in these turbulent times. Can you keep the country happy and prosperous as we head to the 2020s and beyond?
