Cheats

There are many easy ways to cheat for this game, but most of them will ruin the fun really fast.

Starting with no debt

This is probably the less fun-ruining cheat. However, it must be done before starting the game. Go to the directory where you installed Democracy 2, then to the data/missions folder. There you will find all mission files. Open the one you want to change, find the line starting with debt =, and replace it with debt = 0 (or whatever debt you want).

Editing your saved games

The saved games are located in the My Documents folder. They are in XML format, which means that they are quite straight-forward to edit with a text editor like Notepad++. We won't detail all the possibilities (basically it's possible to change whatever you want in your saved game), we'll just focus on removing the debt and adding money to your balance.

  • to remove the debt, edit the line starting with <NationalDebt> to something like <NationalDebt>0.00000000</NationalDebt>
  • to add cash to your balance, edit the line starting with <CurrentBalance> to something like <CurrentBalance>999999999.00000000</CurrentBalance>

Editing the policies

Now this really ruins the fun: you can edit the effects of the policies. For instance, you can edit the tax policy so that raising taxes will make people happy! Go to the directory where you installed Democracy 2, then to the data/simulation folder. Open Policies.csv with a text editor, and edit the policies as you wish.

For instance, to improve the popularity and money gain of the income tax, replace:

  • #,IncomeTax,Income Tax,tax,"One of the most popular ways to raise money for government is a direct tax on peoples earnings, deducted at source by their employer. Income tax is generally a progressive tax (the wealthy pay more as a fraction of their income than the poor) and for this reason it is popular with socialists and the low paid.",UNCANCELLABLE;MULTIPLYINCOME,36,11,34,11,TAX,0,0,,0,2300,123464,"GDP,0.2+(0.8*x);TaxEvasion,1.0-(0.2*x)",#Effects,"Socialist,-0.15+(0.35*x)","Capitalist,0.16-(0.39*x)","Equality,-0.1+(0.45*x),4","MiddleIncome,0.27-(1.07*x)","Wealthy,0-(x^11)","_LowIncome,0-(0.10*x)","_MiddleIncome,0-(0.14*x)","_HighIncome,0-(0.20*x)",

With:

  • #,IncomeTax,Income Tax,tax,"One of the most popular ways to raise money for government is a direct tax on peoples earnings, deducted at source by their employer. Income tax is generally a progressive tax (the wealthy pay more as a fraction of their income than the poor) and for this reason it is popular with socialists and the low paid.",UNCANCELLABLE;MULTIPLYINCOME,36,11,34,11,TAX,0,0,,0,2300,123464,"GDP,0.95+(0.05*x);TaxEvasion,0.95+(0.05*x)",#Effects,"Socialist,0.15+(0.35*x)","Capitalist,0.16+(0.39*x)","Equality,0.9+(0.05*x),4","MiddleIncome,0.27+(0.5*x)","Wealthy,0+(x^11)","_LowIncome,0+(0.10*x)","_MiddleIncome,0+(0.14*x)","_HighIncome,0+(0.20*x)",
