Am interested in the game, but have some serious questions to ask and don’t see an FAQ here or anything that can answer these questions:
- Does this game simulate the effect of income inequality and its impact on voting and democracy? In other words, can it simulate a core of very wealthy citizens who can sway elections by providing specific candidates with tons of campaign funds?
- Can it represent the effect of lobbies on specific politicians to sway their legislation?
- Can it simulate the effects of Gerrymandered districts that skew election results so that the number of representatives a party can generate is not proportional to the popular vote in the state overall?
- Does the game simulate politically activist courts, particularly SCOTUS, who alter the game rules for everyone?
My point is, how realistic is the game as a simulator for modern US politics? I’d love to see feedback from some who have played the game.
