The Democratic Socialism Simulator is an attempt to prefigure the opportunities and challenges of a Sanders (or Sanders-like) presidency. It's by no means a serious simulation, but is based on extensive research on viable policies, and on the history of social-democracies.
This game aims to go beyond the personal attacks and bad faith analysis of the electoral cycle and focus on what can be concretely done once in power. The Democratic Socialism Simulator is meant to entertain, enrage, provoke socialist-curious players as well as comrades on the front lines of the political revolution.
