Then I recommend Superpower 2: "SuperPower2 is the only global geopolitical simulation game which allows players to control entire countries. Players control countries in 3 major areas: political, economic and military, but this time, in a beautiful real-time 3D environment. Players build up their own countries and increase their influence in the broader world while competing against sophisticated A.I. Along the way, gamers make use of economic sanctions, political alliances, and military actions to wage their battles. SuperPower2 offers the ability to fine-tune each country's performance, from creating or breaking treaties, to making tactical decisions in particular military conflicts. It currently supports a 32-person multiplayer game, although the engine design could theoretically support a game where every country in the world is played by a human -- 193 players!" I purchased the game and so far enjoy it, I think that more people from the GF Geopolitical Game should get it and then we could all play Superpower 2 online for an even more realistic good time! http://www.superpower2game.com/ :nodding: DO IT! If you have any questions about Superpower 2 not mentioned in the above link I can attempt to answer them!

How does it work, do people sign up for each nation? or what? and it's hosted by one main server or something? or can people host there own servers?

Multiplayer games Superpower 2 is very data intensive. For security and stability issues, all data and treatment is handled by the server, which is the computer starting a game. When playing in single player, your computer is both server and client of the same game. But when playing in multiplayer, the server computer has as much clients as there are players in the game (note that a player can host and play at the same time). The server is likely to broadcast a lot of data to the players, so the computer with the fastest connection should always be the server. Joining multiplayer games SuperPower 2 uses the Gamespy matchmaking network to connect players on the internet. A player can drop in the middle of a game, and can drop out at any time. To find a game, the player has to choose between internet, LAN or favorites. Upon refresh, the list shows the server’s name, the number of players present, the ping to the server, the mod currently being played, and the scenario currently being played. A game being played on a mod that isn’t installed on your computer will be grayed out. After having selected the server you wish to join, simply press on "join game", and you’ll be brought to the game lobby. Game Lobby The game lobby is used before a multiplayer game to setup the different players. In it, the players have to choose their nickname, their country, and they can chat while they wait for the game to start. A list of participants displays every connected players and their country. Press the "ready" toggle at the right of your nickname when you’re ready to play. When the game administrator presses "ready", the game starts. Remember that you can join a running game after the administrator started it.
Sounds good. Maybe I'll go pick it up, if others wanna do it.
I'm way cooler than n0e (who isn't though?)

They get some getting used to, although this one has three tutorials for each section (economic, military, political) and gives you a better understanding of the game since it practicaly lets you do anything and everything!
Well im downloading the demo.
