NationStates A promotional device for the novel Jennifer Government, this game allows a player to enjoy a very lightweight governance simulator and arbitrate government positions on various issues that come up; compounding these policy decisions with an initial survey of the governor's political beliefs results in an ever-shifting status (slightly adjusted with every new decision that comes through the pipe). Players compete with each other, both regionally and globally, to see whose country ranks more extremely on various political metrics.

That about wraps it up where the gameplay and simulation is concerned (the game is mum on the subjects of trade, war, monetary policy, ministers and elections) but players go on to role-play at shoe-bangingly great length in user forums and band together to pass resolutions in Model UN fashion.
