The video above is a trailer for the "documentary game" in which "you play the cat of Dr. Mohammed Mossadegh, the first democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran." In 1953, the CIA engineered a coup to bring him down, and that's how it relates back to politics (because we are all about relevance here).
I'm all on board because it's learning + history + politics + gaming + cats. Also the trailer has Nine Inch Nails. A+!
