I have a twist for politics, and I wanted to explore some numerical simulations to compare government types and effectiveness in the use of available resources.

I thinked about agent-base simulation, and later found (on Wikipedia) that this type of simulation is fairly common in treating economic/political problems such as tragedy of the commons and so on...

So I was thinking about using a toolbox instead of programming from scratch (I wanted to improve Obj-Oriented C++ programming, but for an hobby is more than enough toying with toolbox), do you have any insight about that?

Take a look at this sim game, might give you some interesting ideas.
Also there are youtube videos on different areas the author is working on for the sequel.
