I was wondering how easy would it be to put referendums into the game?
I am unsure with other countries but in the U.K. referendums have/could have had a huge effect of the country. We had a referendum on changing the voting system (maybe we could have a referendum in the game to activate compulsory voting?), Brexit is obviously the major one (maybe we could have a referendum on rejoining the EU, or other countries on leaving the EU).
So maybe polices which require more political capital than you can currently achieve, you can trigger a referendum. For example sometimes I want to implement the CO2 tax but the amount of political capital required I cannot get as my limit is lower.
It would require a speech like choice to convince people to vote similar to a general election, then to have a voting screen like a general election.
If it passes then you get the policy, if you fail it could knock down your popularity.
Would this be possible? Or possible to mod?
