When it comes to political simulation games, the Democracy series is easily one of the finest examples the genre has on offer. The third title in the series is set to get a new standalone expansion which will relocate the game’s setting to Africa.

You can pick up Fallout Shelter for free on iOS, with an Android version expected sometime next month.
