Have you ever wanted to be president? or prime-minister? Convinced you could do a better job of running the country? Let's face it, you could hardly do a worse job than our current political leaders.

Crime, Unemployment, National Debt, Terrorism, Climate Change...Have you got the answers to the problems that face western industrialized nations? Here is your chance to find out...

An entire virtual country

Democracy 3 simulates the motivations, loyalties and desires of everyone in the country. A custom-designed neural network is used to model individual voters, each which varying memberships of voting groups, political parties and pressure groups. Each voters income is modeled, along with their levels of complacency and cynicism. This is the most sophisticated political strategy game ever created.

Unique user interface

Despite being vastly detailed under-the-hood, Democracy 3 has a unique user interface that makes visualizing the connections between laws, policies, voters and situations easy. A simple iconic-based view of your countries issues allows you to 'drill-down' through all the relationships between policies and voters to quickly analyze the impacts of your decisions. Your trade policy may affect GDP, which will affect unemployment, which will effect poverty, and thus crime, leading to a change in tourism, which affects GDP...

Complex simulated voters

Each individual voter is a mixture of a subset of the 21 different voter groups represented within the game. They might be a young, wealthy, liberal socialist commuter, or a retired conservative religious capitalist, for example. Not only this, but the extent to which they identify each of those groups is both variable, and can be affected by your policies in the long term. Convert your country to religion, or atheism, to capitalism, or socialism by careful and nuanced adjustment of your policies and laws over time. A 'focus group' feature lets you look at individual voters and see exactly how they came to a decision to vote for you (or not!).

Mod Support

Democracy 3 is very configurable and trivial to mod. It also has steam workshop support, for easy installation and browsing of modded content. Want to mod the game yourself? no problem, you need zero coding experience, just a spreadsheet program or a text editor, and we have a full comprehensive modding guide available here:
http://www.positech.co.uk/democracy3/modding.html
Modders can easily edit the policies, add new ones, change the way objects affect others, create entirely new countries, situations and even re-write the entire economic and political model. Everything is editable and accessible.

Coded by a single developer

Democracy 3 is the work of a single developer, Cliff Harris from the UK, an indie games veteran who has been making games since 1997 and programming since he was 11 years old. Cliff gets some 'help' from his cats, but frankly not much...

Hi there! We are releasing our second expansion to Production Line: Car Factory simulation on the 23rd October!

You can now pick from 2 different looks for every car design in the base game (Sedan,SUV,Sports,Compact,Offroad,Pickup & Small van). Mini trailer showing the...

Hi, we have finally updated the windows build of the game to include an assorted bunch of fixes, optimizations and improvements related to the Unicode translation of the game which we undertook to allow support for Chinese and Russian languages. As far as we know, this should fix all issues regarding startup crashes or missing / corrupted text. We are now working on implementing those same fixes into the linux and OSX builds of the game. Sorry this has taken so long, Unicode is hell... For anyon...

Hi, we know some users have problems with the game not starting, and others (often with low spec laptops) cannot see text. We just uploaded a patch to the windows version today which should fix these issues. As usual, please let us know (with as much detail about the problem and your setup) if the issues are not fixed. Thankyou for your patience, its really hard for us to track down stuff like this because we cannot reproduce it on any of our machines.

Hi, as I'm sure some of you know already, we recently released an update to the game to support Unicode text, allowing us to support some new languages such as Russian and Chinese. As a result of the new code, some players experienced problems with text rendering and fonts, making the game unplayable. We are deeply sorry for this. We set up the original (pre-Unicode) build under a beta called 'classic' which you can still access, but obviously this was no help to those of you who bought the game...

2017-12-09

Hi everyone! We just updated the windows build of the game so that its now the new unicode build, which means it supports a lot more languages. The new language list is... English German Spanish French Italian Polish Portuguese Russian Chinese Soon we will have the Linux & OSX versions translated over, at which point we will simplify everything into one build, and you wont have to care what language steam is set to. Please note we do not *yet* have French translations for the DLC, but everything...
