Looks like a company has come out with a game to help people simulate revolution, apparently it includes a word builder to let players enter in their own societies as closely as they can manage.  Of course the information posessed by those on the ground is incomplete, but this seems like a really neat idea to me.
You're a special case, Babylon.  You are offensive even when you don't post.

Merely by being alive, you make everyone just a little more miserable
