Series like Civilization and Tropico give players the chance to lead their own country to greatness or run it into the ground with poor choices. In Max Berry’s NationStates, players have the freedom to run any kind of country they want without the fear of failing and losing the game. Originally started to promote Berry’s books, NationStates grew into a web-based government simulator with an active community centered around it.
