I played the demo of Republic. It seemed cool, but I can see why it got bad reviews: it plays more like a board game than a computer game. It's quite slow and methodical, nothing about it is particularly spectacular (which is a feeling video games try to capture much more than board games ;)) except for the depth it seemed to have. It's also really menu-intensive, in a pretty bad way... but the game's not designed to be rapid-paced to begin with, so whatever :D. Still, when I read this topic I instantly thought of this game, but decided not to post because I don't think the player can choose different forms of government while playing... and that seemed important. *shrug*

Might as well d/l the demo. :)

thanks for all you interesting comments. I was surfing on the net and I discovered a new free political game. It's called “A Force More Powerful.” This game will come out in September.
Quote
While “A Force More Powerful” sounds like a more sophisticated version of political entertainment games such as Tropico, where players impersonate a dictator, or Revolution, where they try to overthrow one, what makes this design unique is its emphasis on methodical military-style planning. Indeed, the process resembles how U.S. military commanders war game a situation by considering various alternatives and their consequences.

This game will be non-violent and it wil have a lot of possibilities. Check out the web site http://www.breakawaygames.com/news/2005/strategic_nonviolence.html
By the way, the game is made by BreakAway Games, they already  did tropico paradise island expansion.

Try out some of those games, maybe one will be like that. I've actually been looking for similar games with little success.
