When it comes to politics it is easier to understand what types of people make a good or bad democracy. Upgrade My Country uses story as a tool to communicate this. The lead villain in a democracy is the self-serving politician, played by Curlee in the story. The main hero is the citizen, played by Dan and his girlfriend Sue. In most every story the hero is faced with a conflict they don’t know how to overcome on their own and seek the advice of a guide. Tony is the guide in the story.
