I want to educate some friends of mine who live in government housing.
They are physically able to work, yet choose to accept a disability

When the city threatens to turn off their water they go to local
churches with their problem.

I was trying to think of a practical solution, and this question is now
on the table:
Is there an accurate, fun SimCity like simulation of how this situation
will work, that rewards responsible actions and punishes irresponsible
ones in a way that models real life?

They might learn something from this game, and knowledge is power...
