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.
