* LifeImitatesArt: Issue 47 'The Great Wall Of (nationname)' proposes building a wall on the borders of the nation to keep immigrants out, intending this as a satire highlighting a stupidly impractical approach to controlling immigration. This issue was created in 2003, some time before Donald Trump proposed a wall on the US-Mexico border.

* InNameOnly: Regardless of whether you're a President or a Prime minister or a dictator, you always have complete say over the nations issues, and neither the Congress or Parliament or any other organization can overrule any of your choices. There are seemingly no checks and balances.

* LifeImitatesArt: In 2003, one of the game's earliest issues has the crazy idea of building a massive concrete wall along the nation's borders: this is meant to be a satire on anti-immigration attitudes taken to an ad absurdiam extreme. In 2016, Donald Trump made a wall along the US-Mexican border one of his campaign promises for the US Presidential Election.

* FollowTheLeader: New nations will sometimes have a striking similarity to movies that have come out recently (and some old nations take from popular culture as well, without much alteration in many cases).
