There is a rather interesting game I used to play and am just starting it up again called nationstate. You basically make your own country and every day you are given these questions you need to answer. Things like, a country near you is having a civil war and many refuges are crossing into your country. The increase of people is also increasing crime rate. What are you going to do? You are then given several answers to pick from and based on what you decide shapes your country. Also players can join together so you can see how you stack up to other people.
I highly recommend the game.
TL;DR: Go play the game Nationstate.
