I would play this game

Thomas Axworthy preaches better knowledge through gaming.

To that end, the Centre for the Study of Democracy, in partnership with Bitcasters Inc. of Toronto, is developing the History Game Canada. Through gaming, we intend to challenge students to see if they can be as successful as Sir John A. Macdonald in creating a new country. Our goal is to distribute 100,000 free copies of the game to students, teachers and communities across Canada.

In the meantime, there’s always Democracy.
