In a democracy game, the whole community plays the same game, and the same civilisation. Many people decide commonly what we should do next. Nobody has the same absolute power as a player has when playing the game alone. This is called "Democracy" game because all citizens participate, and all give input on how we want the game to be played. For example, nobody has the power to declare war to America, it needs a vote. If a majority of citizens want war with America, then war is declared. Technically, this is a single player game. Only one player gets to play the game physically: the President (elected every month). Everyone can access his save. Nobody can "play ahead" on this save, meaning acting before the president actually does it on his own computer. But the President has to obey the ministers (also elected every month) who give precise orders each turn. Each minister is specialized in a specific field : war, science, economy, workers, city planning, diplomacy. The ministers often consult the people via polls on what policy they should promote. When they poll the people, ministers have to follow the poll, or risk losing all credibility. The people can also express their views whenever they want.
