Today, we will form our own city/state. Or, more accurately, we will form two city/states: I will divide the class in half and give you exactly 5 minutes to create yours. In these 5 minutes, your group must decide the following:

  • the name of your city/state
  • three key virtues that you want every inhabitant of your city to possess
  • the treasury’s major expense. Will you build an unmatched military force? Educate every citizen? Finance science and innovation?
  • the workload. How, exactly, will things get done? Will everyone do the same work, regardless of position? Will some supervise while others toil? Remember: someone in the group will HAVE to do some work.

Oh…and one more thing. I will decide the form of government that you will form.
