Counties Work! Be Your Own County Executive

Are you ready to take over county government? by Dave Bretl, Walworth County Commissioner. (Lake Geneva Regional News & Resorter, 8/17/2011)

Excerpt: It took me a while to get the hang of the game. At first, I couldn't figure out which button to click in order to hear the constituent complaint. As in real life, ignoring constituents leads to a lower approval rating. Once I cleared that hurdle and directed the constituent to the appropriate county department, I assumed that I was supposed to implement all of the requests. I found out the hard way, after having all pet owners arrested, that, like in real life, I needed to exercise some quality control over the requests. Ignoring the most harebrained ideas angered a single constituent, but kept the majority of citizens happy. It took several game "years" to recover from the pet fiasco to regain a fifty percent popularity rating.

A series of screenshot discoveries. (Just nosin' round; I didn't play the game.)

Registration process.

The game itself.

There's plenty more.
