Con Con Simcon

by knann
In Simcon, you are in charge of writing a constitution for your country. You choose clauses about everything, from who is in charge and how often there are elections to whether the states have taxation powers. Then when you hit a button, Simcon considers all your choices and tells you what sort of government you've created, as well as how your country rates in terms of trade, wealth, freedom, stability and militarism. In Simcon, you can create a tolerant, open democracy, or a ruthless totalitarian dictatorship, or even a multiparty religious monarchy. It's entirely up to you whether your citizens live in prosperous freedom or miserable oppression and poverty.
