Jennifer Government: NationStates
aprivatefox thought I had mentioned Max Barry before, so he pointed me at NationStates, a (massively?) multiplayer nation sim game with a kind of wobbly web site so watch out, but mostly I'm just interested in the novel it's purportedly based on, Jennifer Government. Max Barry sounds similar to Jim Munroe.
