Ars-Regendi Ars Regendi is a massive multiplayer browser-based game that simulates states in a
very realistic way. The virtual regents can watch all consequences of their political and
economical decisions in numbers and diagrams, which are generated in a very
complex formula system. Also, Ars Regendi became a meeting point for politically
interested gamers who discuss at a very high level about alternative political, social
and economical concepts. In addition, Ars Regendi has been extended to a complete
geopolitical simulator, which allows the players a lot of interaction in a realistically
simulated world with all its ecological and economical coherences.

From an idealistic viewpoint, Ars Regendi is meant to familiarize its players with
economical and political topics. We do not force a special political course or present
my own views as exclusive truths but try to demonstrate different alternatives in a
living and humorous manner and to define consequences as objective as possible.
Ars Regendi follows no ideology or dogma. Its goal is to promote independent
thinking in the political discourse of our society, and to impart basical economy und
politics knowledge.
