Socialists are a voter group.

Socialists are supporters of economic stability. They're mainly concerned about having a high rate of Equality and low rates of Poverty and Unemployment. To this end, they support progressive taxation, public welfare, and government-based subsidies to help people.


In Democracy 3, socialists are 25% more likely to be trade unionists and 20% more likely to be state employees.


Citizens are influenced to become socialists because of high socialism.

Other GroupsEdit

Almost every Socialist policy benefits the Poor, making the two groups close allies. However, since almost every Socialist policy harms the income of Capitalists and the Wealthy, the groups have a historically infamous blood feud.

Pressure GroupsEdit

Dissatisfied socialists - especially poor ones - may join the violent Socialist Army.

In Democracy 3, dissatisfied socialists - especially poor or trade unionist ones - may join the Communist Party to make their demands heard and, if ignored, may radicalize and join the Revolutionary Army.
