    Don't bother with Citizen Groups, Sarevok. They are generally one-week wonders that get a bunch of people to sign on to and then die. The only citizen group that did anything useful this game was the Polling Standards Commission, though even it died a couple of months ago.

    Im hoping to revive the Citizens groups in DG4. I do not want to see them die in a few weeks.

    Citizen's Groups die because they have no power. Nobody has put forth a strategy for a CitGroup yet that allows that group to actually exert its will on the nation. They are toothless and once people realize this, they lose interest.

    Then again, the most logical form of power that a CitGroup can hope to wield would be through elections, and any endoresments of candidates might come dangerously close to violating the rule against political parties.
