This game is not a 'play it now then forget it' type. I have only browsed on the earlier stages but it would appear to be a game of some depth which requires a thoughtful, steady approach. Your production and related trade links must be developed, whilst your own citizens are also demanding attention. In addition there is the likelyhood of some military activity, to whatever extent the participant wishes to take it. As in life, it is possible to go for the quiet approach, which may see your country sidelined or even 'go under'. Alternatively, a more robust outlook could see you attaining the top dog position. This world is your microcosm.
