Ever wanted to run the country?

Have you ever wanted to be president? or prime-minister? Convinced you could do a better job of running the country? Let's face it, you could hardly do a worse job than our current political leaders. Crime, Unemployment, National Debt, Terrorism, Climate Change...Have you got the answers to the problems that face western industrialized nations? Here is your chance to find out…

An entire virtual country

Democracy 3 simulates the motivations, loyalties and desires of everyone in the country. A custom-designed neural network is used to model individual voters, each which varying memberships of voting groups, political parties and pressure groups. Each voters income is modelled, along with their levels of complacency and cynicism. This is the most sophisticated political strategy game ever created.

Unique user interface

Despite being vastly detailed under-the-hood, Democracy 3 has a unique user interface that makes visualising the connections between laws, policies, voters and situations easy. A simple iconic-based view of your countries issues allows you to 'drill-down' through all the relationships between policies and voters to quickly analyse the impacts of your decisions. Your trade policy may affect GDP, which will affect unemployment, which will effect poverty, and thus crime, leading to a change in tourism, which affects GDP…

Complex simulated voters

Each individual voter is a mixture of a subset of the 21 different voter groups represented within the game. They might be a young, wealthy, liberal socialist commuter, or a retired conservative religious capitalist, for example. Not only this, but the extent to which they identify each of those groups is both variable, and can be affected by your policies in the long term. Convert your country to religion, or atheism, to capitalism, or socialism by careful and nuanced adjustment of your policies and laws over time. A 'focus group' feature lets you look at individual voters and see exactly how they came to a decision to vote for you (or not!).

Detailed policy model

Each policy (or law) in the game has a slider which allows you to fine tune it's intensity to get the balance just right. A series of equations within the game allows the same policy to have radically different effects on each voter group at different points in the slider, so some voters may be indifferent to a policy unless it reaches extreme levels, for example. Democracy 3 also models the global economy, including credit rating agencies and debt interest levels, as well as the impact of global events on your country.

Quit complaining about cost

With all the DLC, this game cost $29 on the PC. With all the DLC for iOS, this game cost about $17. People with iPads need to get used to paying 20, 30, 40 and even up to $70 for a PlayStation three quality or better game as iPad air or an iPad air two are far stronger than the PS3 ever was, and technically play games far better...reason why we don't see PS3 or better quality games for the iPad is because people complain anytime a game is more than $10 and it is not economically feasible for developer to make a PS3 quality game… Or even a PS3 .5 quality game for the iPad because mobile people are so stingy and don't want to pay what it really cost to play game. If you want good quality games, get ready to start dishing out what it cost for a console or PC for the newer iPads… $30-$70 per game

Please fix the game as soon as possible!

I love this game. There is no doubt this is my most favorite casual game. When this update rolled out, I did not even hesitate to buy all three of the DLCs. That was when I realized the major problem with this update. The game takes too long to load everything up. This makes the game unplayable for me. Please fix this issue as soon as possible.
P.S. I have been holding this not so good comment for quite some time considering the fact that there is a boat load of comments that is saying the same thing. I thought the developer would fix it immediately, however, I was wrong.

Love this game

Everyone in the reviews whining about the price. Guys, they can see the price. Reviews are for quality of the game. 😑 I've also never experienced any lag.
But back to the game. This is perfect for any strategist or thinker, and really deepens your understanding of politics. You'll struggle as you get assassinated by blacks time and time again, you'll be dozens of billions in debt, but finally, you'll find the balance. This game is very difficult, fun, and exciting.
Just get it.
