Democracy is a no-frills political simulation game, focusing simply on the tactics of being the elected leader of a country. With the power of your law-making ability, you must balance the budget, improve your country, and please as many voters as you can in order to get consistently re-elected. But problems can ensue quickly if some people don't agree with you. The game is easily moddable by editing or creating text files.

A small FAQ is available, and there are links for some other sites that have reviewed the game. There are also advertising blurbs (of course). Lastly, there's an interesting "Making Of..." page, which is a word from the developer about the program.)
