SuperPower 2 is a strategy game for the PC made by DreamCatacher Interactive. It is rated Teen.
After playing for a long period of time (the exact amount varies from game to game), a bug called Autarky sets in. The Autarky bug will always happen if the game is going on for a long period of time. The Autarky bug makes it nearly impossible for a nation to trade because everyone has a surplus for many of the items they trade. This causes nations to begin to lose money, since they can no longer make money from trade. While in most cases the autarky bug eventually occurs, the use of extensive measures within player controlled countries- such as explosive population growth manipulation, severe limiting of human development and minimal infrastructures and telecommunications development- can maintain a permanent, large, and increasing resource deficit, which results in permanent importing for the player country, and massive export growth for virtually all other countries. With extreme population manipulation through the building and canceling of large amounts of soldiers while paused, it is possible to sustain a pan-global computer nation export economy with one underdeveloped, vastly overpopulated nation.
Here's your chance to gather political, even dictator-like savvy in order to build political power and conquer as much of the world as possible. Like no other game on the planet, SuperPower 2 grants regular citizens Presidential powers as they seek world domination, but they'll need intelligence, political-savvy and a touch of shrewdness to be successful. Players build up their own countries and increase influence in the broader world while competing against a sophisticated A.I. They will also have to master economic sanctions, political alliances, and military actions to wage battles. The craftiest gamers are able to fine-tune each country's performance, from creating or breaking treaties, to making strategic decisions in particular military conflicts.
