The "Counties Work" online video game can be found at this link, and hints at being a great outreach tool for teaching people how government works. Why not have an even more developed SIMS-like-game for local government or federal government? Seems like a good idea to me, though I'm the only one who would likely find it fun. You'd probably need some variation of a red-tape monster, or the meeting that just wouldn't end, even with a ctrl-alt-del.
