Build your own private prison.
A computer game called Prison Tycoon allows players to pretend they're the warden of a private prison-players build the prison, hire staff, create activities for inmates, break up fights and handle gang problems. The game's website explains: "Private prisons have become the new growth industry. You will construct and run an efficient rehabilitation facility with nothing but money on your mind." Apparently, the game has been such a success that the company has just released Prison Tycoon 2, in which the goal is to "start with a small, low-security prison and build it into a maximum-security super-max."
