Submission + - Presidental Populous or the Military Sims?

palewook writes: "Simulex and the US Department of Defense are attempting to reproduce reactions of 40+ country's populations. The project, Sentient World Simulation, examines political circumstances, military factors, economic conditions, social entropy, digital information, existing infrastructure, and projected infrastructure. DoD event feeds into the simulation allow Psychological Operations to predict reactions and test projections. Currently using a 100 human behavior model per 1 actual person ratio, SWS reduction plans are for a genuine one model-to-one person ratio level. Deriving each digital model from birth records, job titles, municipal licenses, public data, and available internet information. SWS intends creating your duplicate with similar stats, but avoiding recognizable real world names."
