I'd love to play in opposition and form coalitions, but I suspect that would need to be included in the design from the beginning. Perhaps Democracy 4?

What I'd definitely like to see is better reporting of previous games. A "Hall of Fame" showing the countries where I was most popular / helped the environment the most / turned the economy around.

The best way of populating this might actually be to ask the player "add this game to the hall of fame?" at the end of each play. They could then add one or two sentences about it, and pick from a couple of choices to say why the game was special to them. Include a screen-shot of key statistics and events from your time in power.

In the long-term this would make it easier to remember great games, and increase engagement.

For European countries:

1. The European Union
2. Being able to leave and join and use those as electoral promises
3. Chose the Euro or own currency(For inflation etc.) Francs, Marks, Guldens, Pounds or the Euro.
4. Schengen area(Immigration) if you join the EU you have no less control over borders
5. Aid Other EU countries will help in difficult times in return you do the same when you are more fortunate
6. European parliament, some decisions can only be made by the EU countries when member of the EU.

Communist voter group, communists are very relevant in many european democracies.

Communists are basically currently in the game as a pressure group, but the voters are represented as very committed socialists (far to the socialist end of the socialist/capitalist spectrum).

Far right/Nationalist groups have also been growing fast the last couple of years in all european countries, will this affect the patriot group?

Some of those groups have their roots in the far right, but their supporters are normal people - who just happen to think they've been left behind by the major parties on immigration, jobs, distribution of wealth.

You'll get the same kind of effect if you focus on financial services while leaving agriculture & industry behind; or if you focus on attracting businesses but don't cater to the minimum wage or do something to reduce the impact of income tax on the poor.

In the UK, the BNP fits a lot of the points above. UKIP is also appealing to a lot of conservatives, religious people and elderly people who feel they've been left behind by Cameron's support for gay marriage and ceding of soveriegnty to the EU.

So even if more could be done to build these parties in (I'd love to see several different named political parties present and attracting different voters, but perhaps that's already in the game), some of the effects are still going to be present.
