Sounds a lot like Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, a game that I love but
think could be made even greater.

(It is interesting to note that besides his collectivist/fascist
ideas, Chairman Yang has the best transhumanist quotes in the game -
Provost Zakharov is fun but far too much research for research's own
sake in his quotes to be a real transhumanist)
