Editors' Review

Think the world is a mess? Try running your own nation. Democracy casts you as the president of a country, and challenges you to make enough people happy to win reelection. A serious political and economic simulator, it provides a real taste of the complexity of balancing policy interests. The game's interface is well designed, and provides an in-game tutorial that makes learning easy (real politicians should have it so good). The graphics are clear, if unambitious, and background music gives gameplay a pleasant boost. In our tests, it did crash once while switching screen resolutions, but otherwise functioned well. If you're a political junkie, or a student of modern democracy, this game might be worth the download.

Developer's Description

Run a country's government and do your best to get reelected.

Democracy is a complex and involving political strategy/simulation game where you run the government of one of 10 different countries. Your aim is to get re-elected every 4 years by at least 50% of the population. Voters fall into a large number of categories and all of their views need taking into account if you expect to get re-elected. This is the most accurate political simulation game you will find.

Version 1.2b added newer graphics, some bugfixes and tweaks, extra countries, plus new manifesto promises feature, and restricted power feature.
