I can't recommend this game, it is not a realistic simulator. It's only as good as it's programmed to be and the way it's programmed and even the way it's written is highly pro statist, liberal and socialist. Have whatever belief you want i the real world, I'm just talking about this video game. Don't think this game is in any way indicitive of reality, the values changed by the sliders are arbitrarily picked by the programmers and are very pro socialist. There is nothing to really learn here except that actions can have consiquences, which I hope you already learned before the age of 6. Not all change in life has to be done at the government level. In fact pretty much all of it can be done and done more efficiently by many other forces, such as non-profit groups which play a huge role in the real world. This game doesn't take that into account.
Also, assasignation is rampant and way over the top in this game. The English used is all the queen's english, American english is not accounted for and therefore when playing any country, it's as if you're playing as the UK ministers, etc, everywhere.
