World Empire III is a Risk-like strategy game where the ultimate goal is world conquest. Up to eight human/computer players are assigned a starting country, either at random or by selection. There are some 139 real world nations to choose from.

Each country is assigned an ideology. Nations with the same ideology as yours will be easier to conquer and occupy, while nations with different ideologies will put up greater resistance. Ideological factions include the Populists, Militarists, Socialists, Realists, Pacifists, Optimists, Pessimists, and Feminists.

There are two modes of play: Standard and Real World Simulation. The Standard game plays out similarly to Risk. Real World Simulation mode adds a number of details, including population, industrial/agricultural/gasoline production, infantry/mechanized/tactical air support, and less randomness in battle resolutions.
