Interesting. I think that many MUSHes do fairly good job at modeling
society. In fact, it tends to be their main strength.

However, it's *very* hard to do without player cooperation and realistic
power levels. (i.e. when one player is unkillable by 1,000,000 newbies,
It doesn't make for social stratification).
