I’ve played Democracy 3 a few times, and I was wondering if there was any way to make it so one could collect data from some players to get a sense of what works and what doesn’t work for governments? I understand this would be tricky, due to the nature of the virtual voters. However, is it possible or feasible to create a mod of some sort that can filter out the democracy so to speak and just focus on the cause and effect relationships between policies and effects? I’m also curious as to how the causal relationships were produced for the game; whether there was any consulting with researchers in the social sciences?
Looking forward to hearing from someone soon!
