Let’s Play Democracy 3! (Except It’s Anarchy Now.)

Posted in gaming

Ah, Humble Bundles: my greatest weakness. This time, the choose-your-price-for-charity website offered a bunch of tycoon games, including Democracy 3, a government simulator. Given the high levels of politically-themed salt in the water, it seemed like the perfect time to learn what would happen if I tried to be the Best Leader Ever.

So I took a careful look at the issues and made my best attempt to help both parties meet halfway. My America would both respect the social rights and financial rights of all citizens! My conservative parents and my liberal friends would be proud! It would be a miracle for the history books! Centralists would finally win the day!

Or maybe I’d just die.
