Wonderful stuff, Amos!
Stilly, it's a history-based computer game which allows you to run the financial, political, mercantile, and military affairs of any one of a huge number of nations in the 1700s. Action rangers all over the globe and involves a number of great empires such as those of Spain, Great Britain, France, Austria, Sweden, Russia, the Ottoman Empire, Venice, Savoy, Prussia, and even the fledgling USA in its early revolutionary phase. The game commences in the year 1700, comprises 6-month turns which involve a tremendous number of actions and decisions, and can be played through to the year 1800. Other revolutions may occur in other countries if the existing rulers don't handle things well, and monarchs may be overthrown and replaced by republican forms of government, as happened in the USA. The religious struggle between Catholic and Protestant and Islamic and Hindu nations is also a significant factor.
But the best part of all is the naval battles which are something to behold.
