What is it all about
Democracy 3 puts you in the position of Prime Minister (or President) of a real world country. At the start of the game you have just been elected to serve. The country may be doing fine, or it may be in a real mess, economically, socially or in many other different ways. The voters may be content or angry. What really matters is that you keep the majority of the electorate sufficiently satisfied for them to re-elect you at the end of your term in office.
What really matters is that you keep the majority of the electorate sufficiently satisfied for them to re-elect you at the end of your term in office. What you do with your time in office is entirely up to you, but be aware that the game cannot be won in the conventional sense, only lost in an election or your assassination. The key to Democracy 3 is the voters. These are the people who ultimately decide your fate. Democracy 3 simulates a representative slice of society. The links between all the different objects in Democracy 3 take the form of influences. Situations are on-going events that have been triggered by a certain combination of policies and statistics.
